Anyone here done a Sharpie helmet. I can draw a bit and decided to do one.
After fighting with Cycle Gear to honor their 50% off ad (they really tried hard not to), I bought a white full face helmet. Anyone else done one. I think I'm gonna do 60's motorcycle art and advertising as a theme. Any ideas, inspiration or suggestions would be welcome.

Is using solvents on polycarbonate helmets not a (bad) thing any more?

When I were a lad allowing solvents anywhere close to a helmet meant certain death (or so we were told). They even added a solvent wipe test to the BS safety testing procedure.

Sharpies are just solvents in a stick.

I've seen it done before. You'll need to add something like a layer of clear coat to protect from rubbing the sharpie off.

Although Sharpie helmet art is pretty popular, I've only heard of a few thousand deaths due to helmet failure caused by Sharpie solvents so I'm gonna take a chance. See ya in hell.
