Looking for someone in Southern California area who does custom helmet paint jobs? I figure this being the mecca of MX, there should be half a dozen or so right?

Anyone know where I can find someone to paint my new lid?

Funny. Obvisouly Im not racing Glen Helen next month so my sponsors are....ME. So Troy Lee would be out of the question. I read somewhere that his paint jobs start at 5 bills. :thumbsup:

Yeah, his work can be pretty spendy. Pending on what you like, I'd suggest looking at some riders helmets at the local tracks, take a look at paint and graphic quality etc. Then make your descision.

Here is a basic pricing run down i yanked right from the Troy Lee site.

Custom Painted Name & Number Program

Solid Base Color Change – New solid white helmet (supplied by customer) $200.00+

Solid Base Color Change – Used or production helmet (supplied by customer) $275.00+

Starting Basic Graphics – New solid white helmet (supplied by customer) $500.00+

Starting Basic Graphics – Used or Production helmet (supplied by customer) $575.00+

Chrome Base Helmet – New solid white helmet (supplied by customer) $200.00+

Extra painted visor to match design $150.00+

Cartoons or Characters $200.00+

*Prices are estimates and will vary with each individual paint job.
*Prices do not include helmets

You could also look into a custom car paint shop (Low Riders etc) You can find some pretty talented people outside the "industry" that can do some great work at a reasonable price.

Good tip on the car industry. For what Im thinking for a paint scheme...Troy Lee would run me close to a Gspot.
