Default Helmet Wrapping/Painting

Does anyone know where I can get my helmet wrapped/Painted? It's for my track helmet, so I'm guessing it just can't be anything.

A quick google search has a bunch of stuff for bikes, but I can't find anything for auto racing.

Thanks

If all you want is a basic color, paint it yourself and add some stickers or I have a friend that is a airbrush artist he likes painting on unusual canvases, I could give him a call to see if he would be interested in painting your helmet for you.

My buddy can do vinyl wraps, so you could pick whatever graphic/color you want. This is his ski helmet he did for fun:

Hey not to jack the OP's thread, but...

Any recommendations for a brand or 'system' of paint, to use on a small metal item? Durability is the only thing I'm looking for. I want a matte color. I've heard about some type of spray paint, that you can put in the oven after it's somewhat dried.

The item has a hinge, that already fits together very closely, so powder is probably out.

My concern is I want something that will look good and can't find anything specific to auto helments. Didn't know if there was a difference or not.

Look up Cerakote, It's a coating used for durability and goes on very thin. It's usually used for firearms. You should be able to order it through Brownells.com

I know a few people who are always looking for airbrushing projects. I'm not talking about "ghetto" airbrushing either... they've been cutting their own stencils and stuff like that.
