3. You might want to clear coat the helmet but be careful! Clearcoat turns silver into a dull grey color and clearcoat fills in small scratches/weathering. The reson to clearcoat the helemet is to maintain the exact weathering pattern you painted. On the armor, most don't mind a few more scratches/scuffs as it adds to the overall look so no clear coat is needed to protect it.
5. I have been told by professionals to ALWAYS use primer.
