Each helmet project presents its own challenges, material requirements please contact me with your design idea’s and brand, the model helmet you have. Some helmets are easier to paint than others which in part determines helmet painting pricing.

Twenty years I have invested in learning to design and custom paint race helmets I charge what I believe is a fair hourly rate.

I use only the best automotive paint and the clear coat I use was specifically designed for helmets Tamco High Impact clear coat.

Example’s below are separated by the amount of detail, the number of different colors to be used in the design.

Please reference design example A, B, C according to the type of helmet design you want when contacting me.

I will try to work within your budget so contact me today call or text 1-352-361-3403

Used helmets, flat black color helmets extra charge.

I will need all the reference material, pictures, logo’s, drawings you want to be incorporated into the design along with the completion date you require.

If you do not have a specific design in mind simply send me pictures of three helmet designs you like. Google images to find three designs.

From those, I will have a good feel for design elements you like and come up with a design that will be all your own.

If you want a specific color in your design please include a color chip when you send the helmet.

You can e-mail me all this [email protected] or text it to 1-352-361-3403.

If you haven’t purchased a race hrlmet yet I’m an authorized Bell Helmet retailer and have a store here on site  – GO TO STORE

If you are purchasing a new helmet and intend to get it painted buy a gloss finish helmet not matte or flat finish. Matte, flat finish cannot be painted over they require extra work to get the helmet ready to paint which will raise the cost of having a helmet painted.

Radio equipment please have it installed after the helmet is painted.

If you have any questions feel free to call or text me 1-352-361-3404

Used Helmets………Depending on nick, scratches on the helmet generally $75.00 unless it is in like new condition.

Flat Black Helmets…..Require a lot of work before they can be painted if at all possible get a white, black, silver colored helmet, gloss finish. $100.00 to prep a flat black helmet to paint..

A hand-drawn example of a helmet design I do only after we have spoken about the design you have in mind and you have decided I will be painting your helmet. There is no charge for this as long as I have your helmet and the required deposit. If you want to see this before that deposit is paid there is a $100.00 charge for the service which will be deducted from the total price of painting the helmet.

Computer rendering of a helmet design is very time consuming and the charge for this service is $300 to be paid in advance. This will add $300 to the cost of having the helmet painted.

I believe a hand-drawn a rendering of a helmet design, combined with a temp layout on your actual helmet is the way to go and has worked well for me with 100’s of clients.

If you have any questions regarding this please feel free to text or call me 1-352-361-3403
