    96 Don Post conversion

    Looking at Converting this broken 96 Don Post, when I got it it was craked in several places, it had a broken rage finder.

    I started by cutting out the plastic in the visor area, glued the range finder, I also cut out the keyholes.

    I also made the cover for the top of the rangefinder wich was missing.

    Once I get it all sanded down completely I am going to put a metal band inside the helmet to give a better shape. maybe roto cast the inside

    Nice progress... What did you use to glue the cracked parts together?

    I used a locktite glue, then put some resin on the inside

    Here is a picture of it painted
