I have been researching this for a while. They sell in gallons and you can reduce and paint out a HVLP.
I plan to do the hood on ESV one of these weekends.

Interesting. I wonder if it's really as easy as it looks.

Weekends like this make all the weekends building the Sprinter worth it.

I'm also experimenting with plastidip. Can't buy the gallon cans here in CA, but I did my grill and hub caps in flat black cans and it came off just as the dip your car YouTube videos. I'm also looking at doing it in larger acale

Question Solution for helmet storage/transport?

Geek,

Have you (or anyone else) come up with a solution for stowing a helmet in the van? Do you use a hook, a shelf, or some type of cabinet? I was thinking of a padded cabinet up near the ceiling behind the driver's seat. Something that was built to size that kept a helmet in place while moving yet readily accessible at the garage at the track.

I just brought home my van on Friday. Let the enhancing begin!

When I built my overhead cabinets on the driver's side - I specifically made the cabinet the width of my largest helmet.

I use a forked hook hanger form Sears (crawford) that works great and allows ventilation to let the helmet dry. It enters from the head entry area and hooks on the chin piece. I mounted it in my van (trailer compatible) and then bent the hooks to fit and suspend the helmet face side up where they can't bounce off..... Works great, have 3 of them in a row. Could be mounted below an upper cabinet (hint).

Been riding/camping out of vans since 1988 and figured a few things out - from overbuilds to KISS
