Post Red Bull Helmet

So I did it, I went balls deep, painted my older pro-tec helmet the red bull colors and ordered my vinyls off ebay, I'll post some pictures when I get home if you guys wanna see how the paint job came out... I'm so-so feeling about it so far, some of the lines are a little smudged but I plan on using the vinyls to cover that up, and then clear coat the shit out of it.

Don't know why I'm making a topic about this, just wanted to share!

Sounds wicked!
Regarding the smudged lines, maybe you could apply masking tape before painting to keep the lines straight?
Not sure if it's too late to do that now, but that's how it should've been done. Might be worth a shot now.
And with regards to the painting bit, if you could land yourself a spray gun, even better.
Cheers!

I did mask it off... the first time I did it, the tape was too strong and it left marks on the silver undercoat. so I scrubbed it all off and used a bit of a weaker adhesive tape. I was going to get a spray gun actually but opted out after I wasn't sure of the turn out. So if it looks cool I might buy one. I'll get some pictures up when I'm done class today.

Thats what it looks like so far, I know I got some bleed marks but I plan on having the vinyls cover some of those up... I know it's prolly going to look at bit botchy but we'll see I suppose.

Looks pretty good to me.
Though I was expecting racing stripes for some reason.
And when u said Red Bull, I was envisioning the colours of Red Bull Racing - dark yellow and navy.
