    Don't know why - But worth a try.

    Question is,

    It's obviously top coated in lacquer. Do I just float a base coat of createx autoborne sealer and then go to work.

    Or strip and start from scratch?

    Jumping in head first. Never been one to procrastinate.
    ;)

    I'm no expert, but did a helmet not too long back and that's all I did... cleaned it with cleaner/degreaser and sprayed few good coats of autoborne sealer over it and then my artwork after it dried...I didn't even sand it afterward but some do before spraying the art on it...then let it dry super good and took.it to shop to get 2k clearcoat

    You have to scuff it so the new paint will have a tooth to bite on and adhere too.
    Then wipe it with a good wax and grease remover and then base coat, art work and re-clear it.
    In the USA you must cover the DOT sticker with tape on the back of the helmet otherwise it is deemed unsafe to be used.

    Lmao.

    I take breaks.

    The thing I love about an airbrush - It doesn't lie.

    If your tipsy, you'll ruin your your work.
