I like things to look nice, and my maroon modular helmet feels a little unfashionable with my beautiful Black and Tan colors of the 2019... so I’m trying my hand at painting my cheaper dual sport helmet to match, still thinking on designs for the side of the helmet, but it’s gotta match the theme that goes with the name of my bike.

All criticism and thoughts welcome 🙂

Good start, good plan.
What is the theme that goes with the name of your bike? Hope it is not Skid Lid.:rolleyes:

Wow! Great looking helmet. I am following this thread. I have a 2018 same color. Is it rattle can or custom mix?
It’s rattle can, I just spent all the time on the prep and sweat work. Sanded down the entire helmet after taping up all the weather-strip type edges and stuffing tape into all the vents. Taped up the areas I wanted to leave the flat black design.

Did two coats, let it dry (not completely cure), sanded all rough areas vigorously, moved to 100 grit, sanded smooth, wiped everything down to remove sanded particles.

Two additional coats and now I’m letting it set up for recommended 7 days for full chip resistance, might hit it with a clear coat or protectant. Maybe try a hydrophobic coating!!!

Anyways, here’s the paint I selected because of the bonding agent used (good on vinyl and plastics). And what the helmet looked like before.
