Helmet Paint

Oktane Visual has all the resources needed to give your trackside style a complete makeover. Whether you need a new helmet paint job, or you’re looking for personalized driving gloves, we can reshape your image from head to toe.


Helmet paint pricing depends on a lot of factors, but the first variable is the design. More complex designs take longer to layout, mask, and paint so the cost rises with that added labor. Additional special effects, intricate stencil usage, and wing and vent painting all can alter the cost as well. Please note that you are commissioning a very special and unique piece of custom personal artwork and our prices reflect that.

Turn-Around Time

Oktane Visual adheres to a strict calendar to maintain a consistent turn-around time throughout the year. We only book a few helmets per month and each month is broken down into design time (week 1), painting time (weeks 2-3), and clearcoating/reassembly/return shipping (week 4). Final turn-around time is planned at 1 month from the day we receive the helmet. Rush jobs can be negotiated and will be charged accordingly.

It is important to follow these simple guidelines in order to keep the process on schedule and to make sure the final product lives up both your and our expectations:

  • Helmet must be shipped and arrive within the first week of your booked month. This ensures we can start immediately after the design for the helmet has been approved.
  • Please provide timely feedback during the design phase.
  • Please have final 50% payment ready and sent by week 3 of the month. Final photos of the finished helmet before clearcoat will be sent to you at this point. After clearing, we will ship the helmet back out upon receiving final payment.

Payment Terms

We require a 50% deposit before we start working on your helmet. You can include cash or a check for half the total paint job amount along with the helmet when you send it or we also accept payment through PayPal. After the paint portion of the job is finished and the helmet is ready for final clearing, we'll require you send the remaining balance of the payment and we'll ship your rad looking brain bucket back to you. Alternative payment terms can be discussed if the helmet and payment are able to be exchanged in person at an upcoming event.
