    1. It's useless so stop wearing it
    2. Don't worry about it, get some touchup paint and only you will know it's there
    3. take it to get stripped, inspected, and have it custom painted...unless of course it's a race replica

    I chipped mine in the first week I got it and was thinking :madfawk: at myself
    the way it happened though I knew there was no structural damage, just cosmetic. all joking aside, just touch it up!

    It's fine. You should technically replace helmets every couples years anyways.

    Should be fine, paint isn't protecting you, it's the Styrofoam stuff that is
