    Jul 20, 2004, 12:05 AM - My ESB Amatuer Paintjob #1

    Here's what I started with:


    This is the MLC modified DP97 recast. I bought it from a fellow board member - I assumed MLC meant MLC-1 and he assumed that since MLC made it, it was a MLC. It's a nice helmet but not quite enough room with my glasses on. He's been super cool about the whole thing and offered a full refund if I don't sell it but I decided to paint it up and give it another try.

    Here's my paint job:





    Note that I reworked the front "turn signals" and the dent. A little bondo and some sculpting with a sharp knife, et voila!


    I wanted to get it done to see what the colors looked like together. I used all spray paints - I can list my colors if anyone really wants them. If/when I finally get a extra large helmet, I'll take a lot more time and really go for accuracy.

    Feedback / advice appreciated.

    Thanks Obi Sean, I messed up with my template and masking for the kill stripes (thanx TK-409) and put them too high.

    It's a nice helmet but just too damn small for my peanut!
