    I had a Conway Leather that was black. When I was promoted to Captain I painted it red. I used Hi-Temp engine primer and Hi-Temp red engine paint. You have to sand the leather just a touch to get a correct adhesion of the paint. I tried it with out and the paint came off in my test spot. When I lightly sanded it, it stuck like glue!

    I eventually got a Cairns New Yorker and I still have my Conway. There are things I like about both helmets.

    I would suggest just repainting it black if you need to.

    I own a Conway Leather myself. If I remember correctly they can be repainted. I would suggest calling Conway helmets though. I think I read that they will repaint the helmets for a fee but they may also give you some advice on how to do it properly.

    Conway Leather helmets

    I recently have changed to a white hat but my leather is a conway black. My question is can a conway leather be painted being that the leather is dyed, also with other leathers to change colors you can strip the paint and repaint, if I paint the conway and in the future need it black again will striping the paint ruin the origional finish that was dyed ?
