    Is this rattlecan? or AB? Either way, it looks great so far. I like the burn mark on the dent.

    It is thinner than, say, the SP dark lark grey. It is a color that requires more than one coat!

    Wow! Sorry I missed this !

    First time huh? I think you're far too modest

    See, even knuckle dragging Marines and Hard Case SWAT Cops
    can pull off a pro paintjob

    Must I find pics of "MY" first helmet painting attempt to make you feel better ?

    Terrific Job brother ! Seriously !

    I am grunting, staring at a AirForce chick poster, and singing the Marine Corps Hymn while painting.

    HAHAH. Thanks buddy. I just want to do the lid justice.

    Now if you can believe this, the ears have proven to be the most difficult parts so far. Mainly because the paints are thin. I will have to go over them again for more of a darker look. Just like I plan to do when Im nearly done...do some touch up work on the whole lid.

    Dave,
    Can you take a zoomed in close up of the left ear area so I can see the sizing of that decal?? Looks like it fits pretty good actually but I can't tell.....
