    painting a helmet? not a full face

    i have a UVEX am style helmet. it's terribly drab and oh so passe. rather than buy new i've wondered about hand or spray painting it. anyone done this? i wonder if it would affect the hard shell material rendering it weak, the biggest concern. helmet is 2 seasons old, in good shape, fits very well.

    I put duct tape type 'digi-camo' on my very old training helmet, I actually get compliments on it, which is very surprising to me, I just wanted a 'discreet' helmet. Some spray paints are made for plastic, -you'd have to be careful that the paint you use doesn't melt anything.

    Krylon Fusion would do the trick. You'd have to spend a great deal of time masking off the foam and other parts. Dont rush it.
    Hand paint is much easier.

    Maybe Craigslist your area for someone with an airbrush may give your helmet a unique look.
