Hi, guys!

I recently got this M40 helmet from a local motorbike club really cheap. It seams it's a M40 with a crappy liner, but the shell itself looks ok. As I plan to repaint it ,change the liner and chinstrap, what would you sugjest, should I entirely strip the paint, or just paint over?

Thanks!

Here are a few pics

I would definitely strip it first as a matt paint over the top is going to scratch off really easily. Get it to bare metal then prime etc in the usual way, much more durable!
