A friend Craig of “Element Nine Graphics” offered to do a paint job on my Bell HP7. Craig normally paints helmets for riders in the mountain bike scene. My only guidance was something a bit more edgy and less complex than the typical race car designs and leave some of the helmets original carbon showing. Craig came up with a design that uses two shades of pearlescent blue are deployed, along with white and pearlescent black in a solid design, finished with a white custom rubber trims.
I think it turned out pretty good and have had it for a couple of years now. For next season, I think I’ll go for a fresh scheme for the start of the UK GT cup season with black and orange to tie in with my McLaren (and the ZRT colours).
My helmet is also shown on the Element Nine Graphics website.
