painting crash helmets.

I understand the problem is chemical. Certain paints, solvents etc. can have an effect on the helmets composition and weaken it's integrity. In some organizations that have strict helmet requirements, painting can "decertify" your helmet. Maybe that's the "law" being refered to. Helmets can be safely painted, but it's a science. Get professional help.
