base helmet paint jobs for simple designs start at around $500 on the cheap side and go up from there with complexity and colors. the helmet you pictured is extremely complex and would take a lot of masking, so i think you would be hard pressed to find a good painter for anything under $+61404532026 to do that job. the censport designs/paint
works cost a lot because they are one of the best. it’s a complex original design executed well. so you have to pay for that.

i just paid $400 for a custom design vinyl wrap, the cost is the man hours of design and labor.

you’re probably looking at a minimum of $1000. vinyl wraps and hydro dips are getting more popular as a cheaper alternative but that all depends on who is available around you.

over the last 10 years, i have 5 custom helmets. i have two by shell shock ( https://www.shellshockpaint.com/ ) and 3 by pat wilson ( https://www.facebook.com/patwilsongraphics/ ). both these guys paint helmets that are worn in nascar/indy/nhra/wow/etc. they are some of the best out there.

ive paid between 500 and 900 for the paint, plus the helmet cost. it’s not cheap. the vinyl wraps are looking much better and taking the contour of a helmet much more clean – but they still run 400+

level 2

yeah but … shell shock is nowhere in the same league as other painters. it’s like comparing a scion to a lexus. all subjective and no disrespect but shell shock is bottom shelf quality.

truth be told, anyone less than a pro at painting helmets isn’t going to do a job like that justice. there’s also the fact that a job like that will require a lot of labor in masking, which will shoot the cost up a lot.

usually helmets with that much detail are $1200-$3000 depending on where you get it from. a lot of people also like chrome, so if you wanted that then it’s probably +$500
