Rapid's Helmet

Postby Rapid Randy Baker » Wed Apr 21, 2010 10:06 pm

Got my helmet painted and my Landlord {Gary} sent out the new lettering. It doesn't show the color very well, but it is the same purple as what is on the Vette. I then put some extra majastic flop pearl over the top to give it the prism sparkle look.

Thanks Landlord for the service I think it came out great! 8)

Thanks BP. 8)

Landlord, he just visited my joint with these this afternoon. He probably just wanted to hang on to something important coming from your house is my guess. :D Thank you again for them. I think it looks great on there. The lettering style looks very hand lettered to me. 8)

WC, I think they are around $700-800 bucks. I have had it for a couple of years now. I have made some changes to the inside of the helmet to see if I can improve how it works and flows air.

Very nice Randy! 8) Excellent work Gary! 8) That was going to be my question, hand painted or vinyl lettering? Couldn't tell in the pictures.

Thanks guys, if you look close in a couple of the photos you can see the different colored flake reflecting. Since there was no sun out last night it doesn't show up much.
