Well, first let me say that I bought this bucket off of eBay (first mistake) from a guy in California who took over a month to mail it to me (after I opened a dispute). It was advertised as a "Mystery Helmet" and it came with resin parts. The key holes and the visor had to be cut out then epoxy the keyhole back in place. I paid $90 shipped and although I am very happy with the quality i.e. the durability and size, I wish I ha found TDH EARLIER!!!!
note: The seller on eBay was vanquished after this auction as I believe he sold way more than he actually made.
I used nothing but rattle cans and liquid frisket in painting this. I think you all know that you can get close but NEVER accurate unless you really practice a lot!!!
Here is what I started with after a month of cutting and sanding and shaping...
