FNA - New paint job?

Anyone have any luck repainting/finishing their FNA helmet? Is it possible? Just wondering as mine is looking beat up. I guess I should spend less time counting fishes

ok heres what you do sand the helmet with some 320 to get pits and stuff like that out of it then your going to want to primer it. after you get the primer on it use cheap black paint to guide coat the primer wet sand the primer with 400 grit till the black paint is all gone. the purpose of the guide coat is to get any low spots out that the eye and the hands cant feel. do that a few times. then do it ounce or twice with some 600 grit know your ready for paint. and thats all up to you colors graphics whatever you want. they make a clear coat that is scratchless. the problem is its rediculiously expensive and if you get a run in it while your layin the clear it is so hard it cant be sanded and buffed your stuck with the run. i used to custom paint helmets, golf club heads, baseball helmets, all kinds of stuff.
