I think it ended up being something along the lines of $600-$750. I can't remember off the top of my head.

<digs through emails from painter>

?350 - there was a lot of work involved with the graphic on the back, and it was done by JLF Designs, one of the top painters. Check out the 'News' section of their site.

March '07 - Commission to paint a helmet for BBC TV's Top Gear presenter Richard Hammond.

After his miraculous escape from a 300mph crash a group of his fans got together to present him with a painted helmet to celebrate his speedy recovery and return to the TV programme
