not sure about the legal aspect of it but a quality helmet will be made of fiberglass, kevlar, carbon with either epoxy, vinyl ester or polyester resin of some sort and i can tell you no way in hell is paint going to break down the integrity if the resins or cloth and especially psa adhesive from a sticker. bracketeer...this is another example of the govermant bulls***ing you into getting their way. fiberglass is painted everyday. now if you have a cheap polycarbonate shell helmet then possibly but i highly doubt it.
