    DP 97 my new project

    Just got a DP 97, I'm hoping to make ole flat head look OK, any suggestions (other than bin it). Does antbody have an idea how I can give it a bit more flare, taking into account I live in the UK and its winter! - no chance of putting it in a car on a hot day here in summer never mind winter.
    So what are my chances - please be kind

    You could try heating it up with a hair dryer or a tub of hot water. Hope that helps.

    I think your chances are pretty good. For a 97, that looks real good. I haven't seen too many look better than that.

    Tub of hot water could work.

    Oven on low for a VERY short period of time might work too, but be careful.

    Flame thrower on the left gauntlet at a distance of about 21 feet or so, just beyond the range of the flames.

    thanks for the tips , used the mad hot water method, (couldn't get hold of a flame thrower)it worked a treat, I also used a metal rod bent to shape to support the helmet hopefully it will stop it re-warping.
    Now for the paint job
