PM sent bruv...
PM replied, thanks man
oooh my thread has reached 2 pages woohoo
Ummm STILL waiting on my aluminium ears MediaGuyPJ PLEASE check your PM's!!!
Still waiting? but that was three weeks ago? hope this works out and you get those ears to finish that lid of yours?
Any updates on those eras bruv??
They are in the country!!..................awaiting customs charges, I'm sorry but I've just about had enough of paying extra for items like this to be shipped here, I think I've run up about $250 worth of customs charges alone this year
Nice one... but know what you mean about the import duties...
Aluminium Ears!!!! Here they are all fitted, it almost seems a shame to paint them
wow man! ur lid really came along beautiful!
Very nice..... fitted them darn quick?
Shiny ears. . . mmmmmmmm.
Well if you don't want to paint them, just send them to me and I'll make sure they're disposed of properly.
Tell you what Eric, let me think about that for a while, I'll get back to you I fitted them in about an hour, drew up some quick templates for the hole positions and there we are
Finally got some paint on my ears, had a bit of trouble, the paint just wouldn't adhere to the ears, so after consulting with the oracle (Spidey) I tried again using no thinner and ta daa..Thanks Alex
Mmmmmm Ali ears!
I'll have to remember that trick of no thinners when using those paints! cheers Joe/Alex...
Its a great feeling not to have to paint the silver bits as they always looked, well, silver and not metal enough
Briefly bumping my thread to say
WooHoo 1000 posts

Ok, small update to blow the cobwebs off this old thread! I am calling the front section finished now!! apart from final installation of the visor obviously, I am happy with the weathering I have added and feel I need to focus my attention on the back of the helmet, the tan and main blue/green are down I am now working on the silver/grey areas, I am still very happy with how this has turned out, its only my 2nd ever helmet!! and to say I was worried about ruining it is an understatement!!
Finally, a bump! Was wondering when you'd post more progress.
Thanks Eric, yeah its been a very up and down couple of months for me, work has been terrible!!
Now that is one beautiful bucket, man!
