Shortly after I set this challenge, Hertfordshire Roller Derby posted a link to this helmet customisation tutorial on Twitter, so off I popped to B&Q for primer and pink spray paint!

I couldn’t find all of the materials and clearly am not very gifted with a scalpel, so the results are not quite what I was hoping for. Technically I didn’t *ruin* my helmet, but it definitely could be better! After spending hours cutting out my number stencil and spraying it on to my helmet I couldn’t face spending even more time stenciling on my very long and very curvy name, so I papped out and got stickers instead!

On goes the primer...

And then the pink spray paint
