    Nov 1, 2009, 12:12 AM - fixing paint scuffs? #1

    I've had my MR helmet for awhile now, and unfurtunately it has sustained some small scratches and scuffs with time.I'm wondering if there's a way to fix or at least reduce the appearance of these scratches. Any advice is much appreciated.

    Well, how bad are these scuffs? Plus, is your helmet painted in enamel or acrylic?

    What helped me fix a scuff mark on my enamel painted helmet was dabbing a VERY small amount of paint on a cloth, and rub it on another piece of cloth until the paint is virtually dry, but there's enough to rub onto a surface. In small circles, rub the scuff with the cloth until you get it concealed. Wait for it to dry, and then very lightly,buff it with a #0000 wool wire to smoot the surface. Repeat if necessary.

    Hope this helps you out man.
