Making a custom motorcycle helmet means making a specialized or customized tailored helmet according to your preference. That's why a custom helmet can't be produced in bulk. It is kind of a limited edition unit of product that's only available to you.
However, even if we speak about a custom helmet, you will still need to make sure that your helmet is safe and it protects yours head in any situation. There are some basic ways to make your helmet custom – airbrushing, custom painting it or applying decals to make it look awesome. Here we will describe the ways to make unique motorcycle helmets.
Don’t throw your old helmet! You could transform it into a new customized helmet. There are 2 ways you can custom paint your helmet: airbrush the helmet or wet paint it.
If you have painting skills, you can go on paint the helmet by yourself. But usually it’s better to hire an expert painter and get it done. Don’t even try to paint the helmet yourself or you will end up with an ugly painted helmet.
Here are a few steps for people that decided to paint their helmets:
1. Remove shield, visor & inner pads;
2. Clean the outer shell of the helmet. Just remove all the dust inside;
3. Use sandpaper to sand the outer shell;
4. Use tape to cover any part you don’t want to paint.
