Plastidipped helmet

Hi guys

A buddy of mine has an old helmet that has seen better days, so I decided to help him out.
It's not perfect, but looks a lot better than before.

Let me know what u guys think...

I have to question why you payed the premium for the plastidip when you could have done it for less and had it look better with a can of rustoleum

I had half a tin of plastidip left over from a previous project.

Looked better if rattle canned? It's a PITA to plastidip something and get it consistent. To do a whole helmet is nuts and I think it turned out pretty well. Mind you look at the original helmet (which would explain some of the features which show through the plastic dip). I would take the easier route myself and just rattle can the thing, but oh well.

I just wonder how it'll hold up.
