    Re-Shaping a Don Post Helmet

    Hello all,

    I have an old Don Post Boba Helmet ('95 or '96), that has been in storage for years, and actually got a little squished. I was wondering what options I should be looking at for returning it to it's original shape. Eventually, I want to customize and add a real T-visor to it, but I need to fix the shape, first.

    Any and all help is appreciated.

    Heat gun, very lightly start shaping back. You can also get a craft ring from any fabric shop and just cut it in half and glue along the bottom edge of the bucket, this will also help keep the bucket shape, its what I did with my first bucket.

    Here's what I did to reshape my '95 DP. I cut a small stick of wood and put it on the inside of the helmet from left to right so it would hold the shape that I want it. Then I fiberglass the interior. After the resin cured I carefully remove the piece of wood and the helmet held the new shape nicely. Hope this helps.
