Bern Helmet

Alright homies, I have a glossy white bern helmet, instead of putting on OD stickers, should I just spray paint it matte black, or will that ruin the helmet?

No it will not hurt your helmet.

I dont think it would be a bad idea to rough the surface up a bit (before painting). Otherwise, your paint may peel/flake.

You'll be fine. Make sure you do sand it first, remove the dust, and mask off the inside with a plastic bag and some tape so the inside foam doesn't get sprayed (unless you really don't care). It's probably gonna take two coats to cover the white and leave a solid new layer.

Depending on the paint you use, it could react negatively with the foam (disolve it), so make sure to mask it off well.
