Rear Demist Failure

My Gt 2004 has developed a partial malfunction, only 30% of the rear window demists, leaving a large area clouded. Indie claims that the element is fractured. Seems like another big bill ???

I've heard of people having success with this stuff.

Electrically Conductive Silver Paint

Of course, you'd need to know where the break is and you'd probably need a steady hand with a very thin artists brush perhaps.

A new tail gate is the best answer that silver paint looks crap .My widow only clears at the top I opened the vent it the back car and put the blower on window screen it clears pretty quick
