    Is this normal?

    Been away for a while and havent had a chance to work on my Asok helmet. i cut out the T and trimmed away all excess cast. came back from out to sea and the helmet warped so to say a little bit. you can see that the lower part sticks out further then the top part
    is this normal? any way of fixing?

    Yes, it's. It doesn't happen always but it happens. You can correct it with some heat from a hair drier or simply when attaching the visor.

    I had the exact same thing happen on one of these, like Kaane said, use a heat gun or hair dryer and heat it up and reshape it, it is worth attaching the visor once you get it in shape as it will just rewarp if you leave ir,

    How much heat does it take to warp

    Sooo, im good though? its not a total lost? very salvageable? i am ordering a visor from TVisor tomorrow and will be using the heat gun and then attaching the tvisor using the chicago screw method.

    When attaching the visor does the visor sit flush on the inside of the helmet ? Or is there a small gap ?
