  • Repainting Fire Helmet

    Hello all...I have a few helmets i've collected over the years and have more black than anything..I'd like to repaint one of them Red. It's a Bullard, just the basic thermoplastic or whatever it would be called..not a leather. I did read Cairns procedure for repainting a composite helmet, just curious if anyone else has done this and what kind of primer/paint you used.

    Thanks

    You're not wearing that piece of crap, are you?

    If it is just "for show".. I'd use Krylon's spray paint for plastics... scuff it and shoot it.
