I wanted to let everyone know there is a great option in Line-X to do color and we even do pearl & candy on it. If you don't believe me you can check out one of our videos. The paint almost looks like it's moving. We have done several bikes some in multiple colors and designs.
I have an old crusty hjc helmet that I fixed up.. Here are the steps I followed and the results :)
I used 320 & 600 grit sandpaper, Rust-oleum ultra cover matte black, Rust-oleum ultra cover matte clear.
Step1: Remove padding.. visor.. and any other attached accessories.
Step2: Wash & rinse...
