    Thumbs up Pimp your helmet.

    Everyone wants to look good while posing on Lansdowne Street right? Well, for the ultimate, you need to have some custom paint on that ratty helmet of yours. Oh yea!

    Look no further than my buddy (and burgeoning helmet painter) Luke Dobie. He's being a good guy and doing my helmet up, right now actually, for the 2006 season.

    Along with mine, he recently completed a helmet for Jeff Wood. He got it done in time for Jeff's Daytona races last month, and presented it to him a week prior at the Minimoto races.

    Jeff had two comments when giving me the helmet, "Can you put a badass penguin on it... and have the Arclight colours on there". Past that, he gave Luke and I free reign to come up with a design. Below you can see the results. We wanted it to look like a normal racer paintjob from the front and slowly transition into something a bit wilder. Overall we were pleased with it and Jeff was too.

    Luke can do anything from a full paintjob, small lettering and numbers, bike work, whatever. He'll be up at Loudon this coming weekend to give me my helmet.. can't wait to see it. Check him out! Luke Dobie Designs

    Luke's pretty excited to have a guy like Jeff rocking one of his paintjobs. I'll be sure to pass along any cool comments left here his way.

    Thanks

    werrrrd... got to see the look on Jeff's face when Luke gave it to him & he was pretty blown away. Checked it out up close, it looks great.

    That's what the man said

    It was pretty cool, Alex was cool enough to send me "play by play" pics as Luke was going through the different stages... it was neat seeing updates of it as it came together. The first few updates I was like "well that's pretty cool", but near the end when it really started comin together i was like "woa damn... that's badass"... then seeing it in person i was pretty impressed

    Thats sweet! I was thinking of getting something done on mine (small, not nearly as intricate as that one) to give it some life. About how much does he charge?

    Pimp your helmet.

    Every job is different depending on paints, detail level, etc etc. I have no idea personally.

    To inquire about a paintjob, drop Luke an email or pick up the phone. phone & fax : 978-352-2237 email : bimmer9464@aol.com

    Tell him where ya saw it
