Well this helmet seems to want to fight me every step of the way. If you look at the pink in the above pic you can see some texture in the pink, that is two things, one it is the masking, and two the paint didn't go on smooth. So I went to take the masking off and for some reason it just would not come off, and the texture of the paint was really annoying me. So today I sanded off all the paint on the mandibles, repainted the silver, remasked it, and sprayed the pink on (last time I hand painted it). It came out much better this time around. I think this helmet will be done (barring any more stupid problems) tomorrow and I should have final pics up of the comeplete paint job on Thursday!
