    fanboy's progress

    i've got a lot of the painting done. now to do the back, which i'm dreading. i started it yesterday, i'm going to do some of it layered. i put a new coat of aluminum on yesterday and will mask that off tonight. these are all the progress pics i took, so far. i didn't see the point in taking a ton of pics of the helmet mostly covered in tape and newspaper. i left the 2 small pieces in the visor until my new visor goes in. i ordered one of the newer darker ones from t-visor.com. it appears to be darker than the originals compared to the side by side that mrgr8ness did. http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/showt...hlight=t+visor it is a bit long for my '96 dp, i can take care of that, but it is otherwise a perfect fit. so, here it is for now, i put a lot of the scratches on over the weekend with paint pens, but still need to refine them, will get pics soon. i'm looking for a gray paint pen to do more on the scratches but haven't been able to find one, anyone know where i can go? i got the silver at Michael's, and ran them out of the ultra fine tip. the lid still needs a good weathering job, but i'm very pleased so far. keep in mind the flash lightens the colors.

    here's some updated pics. i still have to fix some of the scratches with a smaller paint marker, do the gray around the scratches, fix some underspray spots and give it a good black wash. some of the pics have the flash and some don't, i tried to get the best lighting i could inside. let me know what you guys think of my first attempt.

    Is the damaged area on the back of your helmet really that yellow? It should be more of a cream/tan color.

    I think it is ... it's the same color as the kill marks.

    Good job masking off the battle damage, though. That looks really good.

    Re: fanboy's progress

    i know it's not the right color. honestly, i thought it would look good with the yellow. it matches with the under coat on the armor and the kill stripes. and i thought it would make the green look a little darker compared to the bright yellow. i'm going to try to dull it down with a wash eventually.
