As some of you may already know, I had a DP95 FG recast and the bastardly thing barely fit on my head. Then, I had to sell it and downgrade to a DP95 Vinyl which should be coming in the mail next week. The FG bucket fits but just barely and I had to rotate it 15 degrees to get my head in.
Now, I know how prone to warping and how light the DP will be so I thought about reinforcing it. The problem again is size. The recast was tight front to back but had lots of room on the sides. My idea was to glue in Sintra "plates" in all the areas where there was some extra room. I would put in a hard PLAM ring around the top of the dome and connect the plates with Sintra strips where room allowed. This would give the helmet more rigidity and weight. HOPEFULLY!!!
Has anyone tried this sectional approach to helmet reinforcement?
I'm a good idea man but my follow through can sometimes suck when it comes to my own projects. Despite this handicap, I'll try to post update pics once the helmet comes in the mail and I get started on the reinforcement.
