Material Problem on Object

I am trying to change the properties of a helmet on a bicyclist but the helmet has a shading to it that wont go away. I’ve tried changing the properties and the material but the shading is still there. I even tried changing the object to a different layer but it still has the shadow look to it. Is there anyway I can fix it or is there something wrong with the object?

Hello - you can try RebuildMesh on the object.

Thank you. That fixed the problem. Do you know what causes that problem?

Hello - my guess is the mesh had vertex colors assigned - RebuildMesh blows all that away.

Ok. Now I know for the next time I run into this problem.
