    Done be sad dude, do what I did to mine! Im converting it slowly!
    And for that flat head...all you need to do is turn on your oven, place it close to the oven and wait until the top of the helmet gets soft..then bend!!

    Yeah, Secol, it IS a bit off. But I think with a bit of work you can get it to look fine for your custom. There's the macrame hoop trick for one, and a couple braces here and there, and a full visor.....I think just that will help tremendously. Don't despair, carnal. This can work.

    Oven man...just turn your oven on...mine was a little warped like pic5 (because of storage), and i heated it up by placing it on the open oven door until it softened.

    I bought that same crappy helmet for &#36;30. I think I paid too much for it. I just gave it a quick paint job to make it look better. My DP '97 is a much better helmet.

    O-boy!
    Did UPS re-hire Ace Ventura to do deliveries again?

    Well, on the good side of things you'll most likely be re-doing that helmet anyway. I'm just trying to cheer you up a little.
    Is that a newer run of the Rubies Boba Helmet?

    woah...
    My 1st. bucket was a 97 DP (I didn't keep it long and used fiberglass buckets since).
    Here is a pick of a 97 DP helmet:




    uke

    I prefer fb buckets now because of such problems... I don't know if that can be fixed but if you are going to keep it you will have some work ahead of you. I would at least attempt fixing it before you chuck it unless your mind is already made up.
