As the title implies, I have some questions about painting. I am very close to painting my first helmet. So far what I've read was that you apply a primer coat, a metallic coat, followed by some masking fluid where I want to the metallic coat to show, then followed by my colors. As I've been reading through the forums, I see talk about a "false primer" coat. I want to get my paint job done correctly. So, my question is what exactly is a false primer coat? is it required? What are the pros and cons to a false primer coat?
