I prefer to start with a new gloss white helmet or carbon fiber.
Please be aware flat or matte finish helmets require a lot of extra prep before they can be painted which add’s to the costs.
Please contact me with any questions before you purchase a helmet.
I’m also an authorized Bell race helmet retailer so you can order your Bell race helmet or accessories thru me.
If you require a color match please send color chip with the helmet.
Please do not remove anything from the helmet before you ship it.
For info on the design process please read HELMET DESIGN PROCESS page.
Team logo, sponsor logo’s to be supplied by the client in high res jpg, PSD or PDF format. If exact colors need to be used in the logo this will add to the cost of having the helmet painted. If you have any questions about this please let me know.
If you send me web color codes (RGB, Hex) or print codes CMYK they will be an added cost to have those codes converted to PPG colors. The cost will depend on color.
Color chips you send me that need to be exact will add to the cost of having the helmet painted. That cost will be determined by which color it is.
If you questions about this please let me know.
Be aware if you purchase a flat or matte finished helmet they require extra work before they can be painted.
The extra prep work that needs to be done before these helmets can be panted increases the cost by $75.00 to $100
If you have any questions please call r text me 1-352-361-3403
A 50% deposit is required with your helmet balance due upon completion. All credit cards accepted thru PayPal. Personal checks, money orders also accepted.
I suggest using Fed X or UPS to ship your helmet to my shop. Shipping costs to and from the shop are paid by the customer. Please let me know when the helmet ships. Helmets purchased online can be drop shipped to me to save on your shipping costs.

If you have a design in mind I would be happy to help you see it come to life.
I practice what I call organic race helmet design meaning every helmet has a design that fits, sounds weird but it is what I see.
I take your ideas and make it work best with the contours of your helmet.
Or you can give me the main idea you have for a helmet design and I will put an original design together for you.
I will not copy other helmet painters designs sorry I believe you deserve an original helmet design you can call all your own.
Please read the HELMET DESIGN page for more details.
You have chosen me to helmet design and paint your helmet, great decision :-)
From the time I receive your helmet thru the design phase and painting, I will be updating you with pictures all the time.
When you receive your helmet you will already know exactly what your helmet looks like.
First I send you the temp layout pictures, we discuss the design make any changes you want and when you are happy I paint it.
By temp layout pictures I mean the design actually on your helmet so you can see exactly what the design looks like on your helmet. Much better than just seeing it on a piece of paper.
Please read the Helmet Design page for details on the helmet design process.
