Opinion on Helmet Paint design

Ok so SANTA is bringing this lid home.
I hate the gothic black cross design it has but I love the carbon and the general lay out of the paint. The price was too good to pass up and it was in my size.
I will change over the green pin stripe to Flourescent Orange and I want to paint over the gothic crap keeping the Chrome or silver part in tact.

I like colours and eye catching, my last 2 street helmets were both Arai Doohan Rep. and my motocross helmet is Bell Moto 8 Showtime. Just to give idea of that I'm not afraid of colour.

Bring your ideas out, I'm not into pin up girls or skelleton either but I do like cartoon Characters like Willy E, Donald, Rent and Stimpy etc.

Lets see what ideas you guys may have.

I like the Teddy on the Tank Girl! I was also thinking an elongated star with my national flag Czech/German/Canadian in the back ground

Re: Opinion on Helmet Paint design

Blows man......you're gonna paint a brand new helmet!

I thought that deteriorates the helmet somehow

I liked that bell helmet with the light grey contrast

Sorry, not much help.

If you were gonna paint a sheme or theme on it.....you should've gone for a Simpson style helmet....just my 2p Osh.
