Preparing A Motorcycle Half  Helmet For Painting


This is a short video on what you need to do to prepare a motorcycle half helmet for painting no matter what kind of airbrush paint you are using.  These same techniques can be used on a full face motorcycle helmat also.

Be sure to just scuff the surface knocking the shine off the helmet surface so the paint has micro scratches to adhere to. Cleaning the surface after you scuff the helmet is critical to having a problem free painting experiance no matter what paint you use. Your paint is only as good as what is underneath it so be careful to complete the prep process completely.

I hope you find this video helpful. If you have any questions please feel free to post them below in the comments box below.
