    Who cares about resale value? Just kidd'in bud, but I have serious doubts that a 97 DP is gonna bring big bucks down the road-theres a ton of em floatin around, and most of the serious costumers scoff at them. If your gonna try for an accurate helm, fill that info in w/ some bondo. If your really concerned about resale value in the future, you better not re-paint it at all! The first thing I did w/ my 96 DP was sand & fill the info on the back, but I guess ultimately, It is up to you!

    You'd get a lot more money with a repainted helmet than a stock one. If you're worried you can take a picture of the date. This applies to the 95 and 96. A stock 95 can run a good price but if it's repainted well, you can get a lot more money than stocked.
