This weekend I had the opportunity to rehab a Star Fortress clone helmet. I think you'll like the work we did.
First, we had to securely mount it to the work surface to ensure that it would not fall over.
(Not shown: We needed to weigh it down a bit, so we filled it with candy)
We wanted to trim it down a bit and the Dremel was missing. So, we found a suitable replacement tool:
A few gentle taps and the helmet was looking MUCH better:
See how much better it looks now that it's all done!
And last... the video (there may be some inappropriate language in there. And adults smashing fiberglass helmets with hammers without wearing safety glasses. don't do that!)
