WOW, great repair man. Fiberglass and jb weld are great
Holly ****! sorry about ur luck.. at least you didnt paint it then have it tear..
You may want to look into getting some decent this time and stop wasting your time with that thing. It reminds me of a beater car.... great side project. but not something you wanna test drive and learn on.
More progress pics fellas.
I'm still trying.
Looks a bit like your mandibles got pinched together... Any way to fix that now? :-\ Sorry to see the damage done, bud... Looks like you're tackling the rebuild like a champ tho. Congrats on the progress so far!
oooh i was thinking of flaring mine, until i saw that, glad to see a good repair done bro, nice one (random funny)
Looking good man !!!!!
Yeouch! I've got an old DP (or is it Rubies) that I was gonna practice on before I got a Bobamaker bucket, but I was worried about re-shaping it.
Just one possibility, I'm thinking that maybe it might have cracked because the visor was cut out from it first. It may have had better strength to survive re-shaping if it was left in until it was done.
Just my guess though - I'm a complete noob who hasn't even painted anything in ten years! :o
Thought that helmet was a gonner, but the repair job looks great! Just a lick of paint and it could end up a great bucket!
The repairs on it seem to be working out well!
Maybe if you use a heat gun you can reshape the front...? Just be gentle.
Ultimately, the visor will probably be what holds it open and you might wait until you are ready to install that.
Im still with you studio, my camera doesnt have batteries. I may just pour you another one, as the one I have thats 'un-modified heavily' has a lot of 'clumps in it'. And its got rub and buff on it. I was testing. I should have more resin on monday.
Ill have info for you by the week ends' end.
Sorr I didnt get back to you yet.
Hey man, from having a gigantor crack in the helmet to fixing the helmet is incredible.
Great progress man, I know you can do a great job on fully repairing this.
Looks like your helmet is coming along great. Did the ears get damaged?
What The Freak!!!! Good Grief man!!! I leave you alone for one week and you start breaking everything!!! Thank God you have some serious talent and can probably fix anything...can you fix a cat???
I have a feeling his helmet will get a little better today.
I cant explain it. Its just a feeling.
I've always thought you can fix anything, till i opened up a guitar hero controller and lost half the pieces.
This however is fixable, keep at it, looks great.
