The Process

Arrival & Inspection 
-
Once your helmet arrives into the shop, it is logged into our system and a notification is generated for you. After that point, your helmet is unpackaged, pre-restoration pictures are taken and pre-inspection begins. Our pre-inspection is a 10 point safety inspection encompassing the entire helmet but also focuses on the condition and general protection of the helmet; Grading on a scale of 1-5, 5 being in top condition. Clients are notified with any remarkable findings not previously discussed, so if we come across anything that can't be worked on due to preexisting conditions, we'll bring it to your attention immediately.

-
Disassembly 
-
In conjunction with your pre-inspection, your helmet is disassembled and each part is tagged and put into your customer bin where they will remain for the duration of the refurbishment process until final assembly and can be sent back per your request. With the entire helmet disassembled and ready for the next stage, our helmet techs can pass the helmet along further into the restoration process to get your helmet closer to looking as fresh as ever.

Repair & Prep Work 
-
If your helmet is getting repair work first hand, this stage is meant for you! As the helmet works it's way down from being stripped,   (if it was getting paint)  our techs begin working on laying down epoxy sculpts and fillers in the areas that are being fixed. From general patching to crease filling and wire welding, we bang out all the repair work needed and get that helmet down to our sanding booth. From there, the helmet gets sanded down properly for the techs that will be handling it during paint prep and all of the excess debris of the helmet is cleared.

-
Primer 
-
After detail prepping is completed, your helmet moves into the primer stage where primer is applied by HVLP in our contaminant free paint booth. With this primer, the surface of the helmet can retain all of the paint that will be applied to it after that initial coating sits and dries. This ensures that the multiple helmet coatings physically set and stick to the helmet's surface without any chipping, flaking or crinkling. This is quite possibly the most clear and important step if the painting process as it would determine the success and capability of the helmet's new coat of paint.

Paint 
-
After a 24-hour dry time, the appropriate amounts of paint is applied over a 4 day time period through our professional painting process. Each helmet is assigned to a slot on the board to keep track of which coat has been applied, where your helmet is located in the drying room and who that helmet actually belongs to. Your helmet will get multiple coats and with each coat applied, a node is marked on the board indicating to our techs which coating was laid down to your helmet.

Final Assembly 
-
-
At this point, your helmet has finally reached the last step of the restoration/customization process. Once the last coating of paint had dried fully, we take your helmet out of the booths and set it down on the assembly racks where a tech will take all of the parts being installed on your helmet and reinstall them. A rather simple but it gets it moving to being shipped each minute it gets put together. This is where your tets, bourkes, brass, liner and much more gets put back. After that gets all wrapped up, our techs can move your helmet to the "Awaiting Payment" rack where all that's left is to pay off your invoice and have the helmet shipped!
