    Our helmets are just painted and topped with clear like you said...no magic. If it were me, I would use one of those paints used for painting plastic car bumpers then clear. It would be more flexible should the helmet take any sudden sharp impacts. I have seen a couple start to peel where they were damaged and once it starts, it will keep on chippin'.

    A-

    Your wife is quite talented. I'm not sure I am secure enough to weld in flowers, sorry.

    My wife painted flowers and bunnies on one of mine, I use it for shock value on certain type jobs, she used acrylic waterbased artist type paints, I used it to learn overhead stick and the paint is still hangin on after a few years....I have used a product from Sherwin Williams called Dimenso, it has a hammertone look and is tough stuff. hopes this sheds some light for you, Paul

    I think that the two-part epoxy paint would be well suited to this application.

    It is heat/chemical resistant but it comes at a steep price.

    How about using a normal off the shelf acrylic artist paint on a test spot and see what happens after 8 hours of arc?

    I was thinking of having mine painted like the hockey mask in the mighty ducks. Let me know if you find an answer from someplace else.
    Thanks,

    hood painting

    hello again i am curious about painting w. hood.i have a speed-glass and its pretty boring looking and was wondering if you would have to use a special kind of paint because of the heat and spatter.would a clear coat keep it from discoloring? thanks for any info,not sure i'll do it but am interested.
Working...
