    JB Project/ FPH Helmet


    Didn't want to bog down the Jeremy Bulloch thread with progress pics.. http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/showthread.php?t=23257 ....so I thought it would be best to start a separate thread.

    I'm in charge of the helmet for this project and will be painting this piece using a Topical method.
    Trust me, it was a hard decision after many hours of going back and forth between layered and topical . Ultimately to get every scratch "perfect", topical was the way to go!..It pains me to admit that.

    Although I won't be posting "how too's" on the work I will be doing, I will only be posting completed phases. This saves me allot of typing, and I also have other peices that need painting for this project.... have to move fast yet accurate...a mid March deadline will be here before you know it.

    Anyway here is the first pic...

    Wetsanded, prepped and primed FPH, with fitted aluminum ears. (Jeremy's getting all the good stuff.)

    Enjoy.

    What are you using for the rf topper? If hollow, I could probably put together a circuit.

    I'm looking forward to seeing the progress. I agree that topical is best way to get things "perfect".

    Can't wait 'til the pics start rolling in!

    Awesome. Maybe you should send him every picture of process when completed, that way he'll know that he's getting all the goods stuff and all the great work that you guys went through.

    I'm sure he'll enjoy seeing the process as much as the finished suit.

    good stuff guys!!
