    Jun 26, 2014, 12:27 AM - ESB Chin Strap Setup #1

    Hey there,


    For anyone that has the replicas that were made a little while back, I'm looking for good photos of exactly how it's put together. I managed to get my hands on the real deal, but it will require some mods and the pics I've found don't quite show the snap and how the additional d-rings.

    Any help would be appreciated.....

    I am looking for the straps myself, so if you figure out how to mount everything please post some pics.

    Lou,

    I'm considering the same, since eventually I will have an ESB helmet that's just display, in addition to the trooping version........

    Yea I'm pretty content with my MR based helmets now so I think the FPH2, ultimate ESB should be my display piece. I have the original straps/chin cup I will install in the FPH2, and use copies for my trooping helmet. I'll likely use the real Polaroid lens as well since I can get another if I need to make new molds for it. Now if I could find the correct Borden that would be fantastic lol
