Can anyone paint a helmet?
« on: September 19, 2012, 08:08:57 pm »
Was wondering if anyone here on ETB has the capability to paint a helmet? I have this helmet:


I would need it painted a sparkly silver, like this:


I can get the striping and buckeye leaves to add to make it look like this in the end:


Anyone able to do this, within reason?

Curt, he already has it, been delayed as he is having some health issues right now. Told him to worry about himself first, the helmet can wait. I know he has it all sanded down but haven't talked to him in a few days, don't want him to rush until he is better.

Well I picked up the helmet last night from Michael (Gr8whiteGSXR) and all I can say is WOW!!! This thing is awesome. You can see the before pic up top and here it is now.






These pics do not do it justice at all, maybe Curtie can do me some cool ones ;) Now I'm going to take it for its first ride.
