Here you go:
Team-BHP Classifieds - Inkster Custom Airbrush (helmets) - Powered by PhotoPost Classifieds

For the better informed: would painting a helmet cause the helmet shell to lose structural strength, as in the case of stickers/decals?

Yes, the helmet manufacturers warn against painting their helmets.

I checked the top air vents on my AGV GP1 helmet & found that there were 2 holes inside the foam which allow air inside, I also rode & checked they did work. So I say they are useful.

Still wondering, how does the adhesive on the stickers/helmet damage the structural integrity of the helmet?

The adhesive if solvent based might be problem, but most stickers aren't. Plus, I think this was more relevant in the era where the helmets were made of fibreglass, this would really not be a problem in today's injection moulded plastic helmets.

You can't see the holes as they're covered with the black inner lining, you can only feel them.

Is it the original AGV GP1 or an Indian make? How much did you pay for it ?

There was a blue chrome/iridium as well. I couldn't decide between the two and ordered this one. I'll get the blue next time. Btw, the helmet does have silver/chrome glitter on it as well.

I have seen examples of BHP helmets in bombay, they're quite crap, and do not carry and DOT or Snell rating whatsoever.
Just be nice to your head, get an AGV indian, or the imported one (whichever fits your budget) from the many dealers around.
