I have a Wilson HSM that is in need of a paint job. It is the matte finish that feels kind of rubbery and I was wondering if there was a good paint that could be used to repaint this helmet or if it is even possible. I'm pretty good with spray paint and making things look good using only spray paint (I've done several guitars with nothing but spray paint from autozone that people swear look as good as from the factory). I've searched and there's plenty on painting/powdercoating the cage, but nothing on painting the shell itself. Not trying to be fancy, just want to improve the look a little.

I sent my All-Star HSM to a guy that does airbrush/paint work. He turned a glossy finish helmet into a Matte finish. I have had no issues. I don't know the process, but I would assume some sanding and maybe a primer coat would do the trick.

      Does anyone have any Wilson mask harnesses they don't want? I know they aren't that popular but I like them and need some for back-up masks.
