I'm looking to do a bang-up custom paint job on my WRSI helmet.

Has anyone found the a good method to bond paint to this type of plastic?

If so, lay down the knowledge please...

Thanks in advance-

Craig

What type of paints/clearcoat are you planning on using? If you want to use acrylics-XIM makes a bonding primer in a spraycan that I use on plastic all the time, no helmets yet. I get mine at a paint store. It comes in clear and white. Scuff the surface very well and clearcoat it well and you should be good enough to use acrylics. Add some Golden Gac400 to your acrylics, it helps bonding on hard surfaces. Auto paints work great but that is a whole other chemistry project.

Oh yeah. Check out Auto Air Paints. Acrylic paints that you add a hardener to. They may have a primer as well. Awesome product I have used on skateboards with the XIM.
