Original Stig, the bloke who drove the car off the aircraft carrier? Got fired for telling who he was.

Just get some pressure packs from Bunnings and have at it yourself, just like the old Datto!

hey mate

if you want a half decent finish a panel beaters/spray painters is the best and probly the cheaper option too. id strip it before ya giv it to them tho.

air brush joints would be very expensive i imagine.
if your not livn on the edge your takn up to much room

Airbrushing is the only way to go if you want to change the look of the helmet.

I know that stickers and two pack were illegal in circuit racing a few years ago and im pretty sure they still are.

Check your regs first.

Two pack is frowned apon, but stickers is okay.
Airbrushing plain black shouldn't be too bad? what paint do the airbrushers use anyway?
haha, the helmet deserves a little better than the datto.

Go to your hobby shop as they sell paint specificly for plastics and fiberglass.

I would imagine that spray paint would just rub off after a while
The computer programs say it won’t :lol:

Go to Stanbridges in Mt Lawley. They have polycarbonate paints in plenty of colors including metallics. They have airbrushing stuff to.

Schweeet!

I second the recommendation to visit Stanbridges hobbies, just be careful when you go in!

I've walked in there meaning to have a quick look for some bits for one of my R/C cars, and have staggered out hours later with armfuls of different things and an empty bank account...
