This is my first post here, but have been lurking for a few months. Last year I built my first set of armor, and started out with the sad Rubies helmet. This year Due to waiting till the last minute, and not being able to find a good fiberglass helmet I am forced to be stuck with the rubies attrocity. So to make things work alittle better, I have stripped the helmet, am in the process of painting it, and have come to the reinforcing part of the job.
I bent it , and used a rod last year to help keep its shape but I really would like to do one better. So I guess what I am looking to find out before I totally screw up my project is Will Fiberglass, attack the vinyl that the helmet is made of?
If so what other ways are there to reinforce this helmet.
Thanks for the help
