keep checking back i will continue to post pics of my progress
ok my cruddy camera broke so i used my roommates...
i found this dp '96 on craigslist and bought it
it was still in the box with its tag and all (mint)
so i took a look to see if there were any areas that would need fixing...
first the cheep visor had to go.
then i looked for bubbles in the plastic this pic here is 1 of maybe 5 areas i saw.
then areas that would need cutting out.
then areas that would need fill ... besides the dent
there were two such factory stamps
and lastly i checked the shape
if you look closely the top of the dome is a bit out on the bottom left
but the worst part is the rest of the shape .... which can be seen the best from below..
so i plan to make a inner support out of plywood and barrow a heat gun to reshape this. the support is purely to get the shape right then i will remove it.
i think this will shape up to be a better start for me than my rubbermade brute distaster and with some time and alot of work i think i could make a great helmet out of this
