    The skull cap had a very thin rubberized film on it. Couple scuff marks and gauges in it on the sides. Wiped it down and sprayed it with about 4 coats autoborne black sealer to make a good bond between helmet and paint and also to help fill in those imperfections. Really glad it worked lmao.
    Then used stencil and used dryer sheet to make the HD on the back of the helmet. Used wicked opaque white for the paint, thinned about 1 drop paint, 4 drops 4012 reducer. Used a .5mm needle and nozzle as well. First time using the bigger needle nozzle combo..made spraying the whole helmet alot faster.

    This was right before I took it for clearcoat. Totally didn't take enough pics though out the process sorry. I had put the side skullage and flames in and let in dry really well for a couple days. Then mixed up the blue candy and laid about 4 coats and achieved the color I was going for. I wanted to spray more detail in everything. I was planning on more coats of paint/candy but the pics I sent to the client made him so happy he didn't want it to change. So I let it dry for about a week (I know it didn't need that long, but I was off work with knee injury and wasn't suppose to move around anyway lol) I contacted a local paint shop and got it in for a 2k clearcoat..still need to get pics taken of it after the clearcoat. But it's done and the client is super happy

    Nicely done, and the customer is happy, 2 out of 2. Pics with the clearcoat will be great to see. Don't forget to take them and post them up.

    20190521_023923.jpg Oops...had some kind of electrical issue at home that wiped out the fridge and might have damaged the dishwasher. Spaced getting the clearcoat pics till I was aT work delivering the helmet to who paid me to paint it...tried to snap some photos but there were lights and glares wherever I tried.

    That looks great Jonathon! Looks like the Clear went in nice too, it really brings out the blue and gives it some life. Excellent job Buddy.

    @bad65 thx man

    @SiRoxx yeah, I thought it brought it together nicely. The client likes it so much he wants some bike customization to match it once I can get the time
