    DP painting questions

    I just bought a DP 95 helmet(Finaly!) and I was wondering what you do to repaint it? What kind of sand paper do you use? What primer and paints to use? Where do I find a visor for it? Also I was thinking of filling in the dent, what would I use for doing that.

    I have no knowledge of how to do any of this so I need instructions on how to do all of it.

    Here's a thread which many of us used. It is a list of paints to use on an ESB helmet. Lots of good technique tips too. In the future, if you do a search you can find a ton of good info! Have fun!

    Make sure you coat that bad boy with about 5 coats of sandable auto primer or its wrinkle city lol, or worse the paint never dries.
