Helmet Spray Paint

JIP !

 

Major difference between a "team spray job" vs trying to revive an old lid ....

 

 

 

 

That said .... one day I may just cave in and buy an airbrush kit .... economical - heck NO, but imagine the fun (and frustration)

I bought a cheap one. It was R120 back then (probably R250 now). I bought a small adapter to connect it to a car tyre (instead of buying a compressor). It works a treat to paint my rc cars and remove scratches from bike frames

Nie nodig om nou verder te krap nie ...  :devil:   :whistling:

 

 

I have a small 30 liter compressor ... add a pressure regulator and water trap combo unit .... every so often I DO get the urge ....

 

 

and then reality sets in about my lack of artistic skills ....  :ph34r:

Practice painting tattoos on your kids.... they won't care if you have skills or not...... and they do wash off eventually.

I bought a Bell full face helmet at a Seco d hand store for next to nothing and learned a hard lesson.. Use the right brand for the job... I used cheap paint and ended up having to sand the whole thing down again.. The using a Rustoleum plastic primer and then Rustoleum spray and laqcuer after.. Looks decent now.. So yep mask it very carefully and go for it dude.. Expect to pay around 250 to 300 for primer and spray... For a full face at R100 it was worth it
