    has anyone stripped an old paint job off a helmet?? or do you just sand it down and prime it?

    i stripped down 2 helmets using acetone.

    the master replicas helmet had no issues. the one made of smoothcast roto was 99% ok, but the keyhole area melted a little... i had already cut them out, so there wasn't much left back there. it was easy to fix, but there was some damage.
