    My don post 96 fix up an repaint

    image-jpgimage-jpgThis was my helmet around the episode 3 premiere I didn't have the funds to get a whole new helmet so I set out to repair some broken parts and repaint it. It's not done yet still needs some detail spots added like correct decals and things like that but it's coming along I will also take better pics when I get it fully done but here it is. image-jpgimage-jpgimage-jpgI have a ww2 GI helmet liner in the inside to keep it secure it's working pretty wellimage-jpg Took me about 3 days to paint image-jpg image-jpg

    3 days to paint? Would've taken me 3 months. Looks really good from what I can make out in the pics.

    x2. DEFINITELY reminds me of the Don Post repaints I used to do. Yours looks pretty good. With the help of this site, it'll be SUPER good!

    Looking pretty good to me! Just curious, is that the vinyl DP helmet or the fiberglass deluxe? The shape looks pretty good, which is why i ask!

    It's vinyl when I put the visor in could re shape it cause it was badly warped
