You can do what I did and search on ebay for NHL pro stock or you can apparently take out the inserts and spray paint them, I'd search modsquadhockey forum for answers tho..

Krylon Fusion spraypaint, it's for plastic. Just undo all the screws and take the padding out of the shell. Mask off the padding and paint the inserts. It's cheap and easy.

Just out of curiosity, why would you want custom inserts?
I see yeah getting the outer shell part of the helmet all custom, but the inside why?

I believe he is referring to the outer areas of RBK helmets that are normally gray. The Gatineau Olympiques have their inserts orange for their team.

Also, you can buy Prostock RBK helmets at Hockey Monkey.com. Their is a banner at the top with an ad.

Those one's at hockey monkey are pro stock colors, not pro stock helmets, mine doesn't have the RBK logo's on the side of the helmet (not allowed in NHL)

I had to ask this question to our local pro shop for one of my players ordering equipment for next season and was told that RBK does do custom orders, but typically for teams only. He told me that they do sell overruns though and that if we gave him a color combination, that he could speak to the RBK rep and see if they had any in that color sitting around or if they could put one together using the parts from two separate helmets.

My best advice would be talk to your local pro shop...that is if you have access to a good local shop.

just be aware that anything you do to it yourself will void the certification and warranty. That includes applying any inks,paints or sticky backed labels/stickers.
