Helmet Painting

My Boyfriend bought his motorcycle last March and I bought a Green helmet just to get around with him. I will most likely be buying my first bike at the beginning of next month and would like my helmet to match my bike. Any idea where to go to get this done and wheather or not the paint will stick. I just don't want to spend to much money at first. I will probably go get a new helmet eventually but since I already have one, I am in no rush to spend a few hundred bucks.

Let me know,

He's right, depending on what kinda paint job you want.
If you're just lookin' to rattle can a simple design it will be cheap but, if you want a spray complex design you can easily spend more than a new helmet costs. Even a single color of something like auto paint would be pretty expensive.

if you want it painted you want it done well and that will not be cheap.

I would just wear what ya got and save for a better helmet to match your bike!
