    after I don't know how many years of wearing that awful looking excuse of a toilet bowl come helmet from Dainese Fraser finally got him self a proper D2. unfortunately blue and yellow tld flames didn't quit match his orange/mojo gear so a quick respray was in order; pearl charcoal gray and neon orange metal flake should do the trick:










    and i have a new one too:spam:

    by quick i mean really simple, bold graphics that were relatively quick to paint. the clear coat was still done properly though with 3 good coats, a few days to cure, wet sanding, and 2 final coats.

    Really nice, I like those. Much better than most custom spray jobs! Bold & simple = a winner.

    You should have airbrushed some poutine graphics on it.

    That's eastern canada's claim to fame.


    It's damn good too.


    If I were canadian I'd name my children poutine.


    Instead I had to name them leonard and skynrd

    That's nice - it's great to see a helmet without loads of sponsors logos all over it for once. Helmets are all about your personal paint job not representing random corp . . . . . :clapping:

    That grey is very good looking Lee. Like a tube full of mercury. While I know it's unintended, I actually like how the flames from the stock paintjob are sorta pushing through the paint on the back there. Damn good job!

    Now...to try some Fraser one liners:

    To keep the 12 year old from picking on him in the lift line.


    Give him time.

    They make D2's in size "Elf" ?

    The visor looks short on yours, General. For the backflips?
