There is a guy in Hawaii that does custom helmets. Hocky, MX, road...he does stuff like that. I was researching some custom paint jobs before I figured my decals were cheaper and easier for me to do myself.

Just did a little digging. This guy does a lot of these, and each one is indeed different:

Click on each link and see the various versions he's done.

Looks like he does the skull thing over and over. If he did anything else, I might hit him up. I like the idea, just not the design.

I'm still testing how long the decals will last. I've not clear coated over them, and it's been a couple weeks of hot sun, bugs, window cleaner, and me treating the helMOT like crap. Still holding strong.

On the other hand, I could do the decal, and you could hit up Ken for some clearcoat.

PM me or hit me up at SOW or Strats tonight.

That's the kind of quality I'm lookin' for!
