So I got around to trying helmet painting. I had and old helmet to practice on and bought a cheap airbrush and a small detail spraygun. I think this came out pretty decent for my first attempt. The paint is Createx water based and all but the white is pearlized. I cleared it with the Spraymax 2k clear. The video is right after applying the clear and the pics are after I wet sanded and polished.

That's badass!

I just got an airbrush & practicing a little for helmets & bike panels/tanks.

Nice work!!

Thanks! Biggest things I learned, only use fine line vinyl tape and make a plan and try to do all of the painting over a couple of days. I had some of the tape on for far too long.
