Default The official Christmas present help thread...

I'm looking for Texans decals. The same that goes on the team helmets. You cannot paint motorcycle helmets as it makes them unstable and unsafe. So we want to place the very same decals as the Texans helmets on them. It must be mirror-images because both sides are opposite. This is where I get stumped in my search. I simply can't find them. I also would like to see a nice selection of various decals. No stickers. Just sturdy decals as these would go on a motorcycle.

Help?

Although I would never paint my helmet...what about painting a helmet would make it any more unstable than putting decals on it?

You would have to sand down the helmet so the new paint can grip. Sanding breaks up the shell and causes flat spotting. The paint as it comes from the factory is an integral part of the helmet's strength. Also, the reducer in most primers breaks down the plastic composites. I believe you can repaint carbon fiber helmets but not your standard helmets unless they have flat colors. They had me at sandpaper to the skull so I'll pass.

Sounds like you came up with your first Christmas present already - a carbon fiber helmet!

At $2,000 and up, I think I can find a painted helmet that I like.
