    Jan 7, 2009, 6:07 PM - First ESB paintup. #1

    So I've had my helmet for a while and had been scared to death to paint it. I finally manned up and got my airbrush colors and got to work. I have most of the front done with the main damage. I need to do the dome's damage and the back but this is what I have so far. Also I just got my visor in today!

    Its a mix of both. Some damage is layered. Some is topical. I had big issues with the green coming off and some of the red. I used a silver that sucks and some of the paint didn't want to stick to it. So I'm being as careful as I can.
