Custom HGU-55/P art?
« on: September 25, 2008, 12:05:22 AM »
I'm thinking about getting another HGU-55/P and having it custom painted.   :wacko:  Beyond the obvious places that could attempt such a thing (custom bike shops and so forth), can anyone recommend a good company in the U.S., for having this sort of thing done?  Preferably a company that specializes in customizing flight helmets and is familiar with tearing them down and putting them back together (I don't want to babysit them).  I found a couple places on the web that look promising, but I'm just curious if anyone's had any experience here or could recommend a place.  I'd like to customize the mask & visor as well.  I know it won't come cheap.

Hi Guys,

I can recommend these guys very much:

Otherwise try my friend Paul Taylor at:
www.customflighthelmets.com

Not cheap, but he makes the real thing for the US Navy also...

Cheers FLO
