    May 23, 2010, 1:43 PM - Helmet Smell??? #1

    Hello, This is my first post here and I need some help with a helmet that I purchased (for very cheap). When I bought this helmet (1995 Don Post) it had a couple of very bad cracks (the helmet was almost in two parts) and I figured that I could glue it together and use it for a display peice. I used a two part epoxy and I had to use alot of it, now the helmet has a very bad glue smell to it. It seems like the helmet absorbed the smell and I cannot get rid of it. I was hoping that it would go away with time but it has been over a year since I glued it. I have to keep it in the storage in the basement because if I put it out on display it stinks up the basement pretty bad. Any ideas how I can get rid of the smell??

    Thanks for any help.

    Paul

    Have you tried baking soda or febreeze.

    You can take a hair dryer and warm the helmet up then put the baking soda in it, the heat should help release any smells.
