    Once again Brak's you have pushed the boundary of knowledge even further. I am forever grateful for all the info you have kindly shared here on TDH...

    Those JP pics will come in very handy, I will be putting the harness connections on my JP soon.

    How can you possibly ruin a helmet like that, that badly remolding it? HOw???? someone needs a beating for that. Otherwise that is awesome I'm glad it was found at all.

    Well when they cast it in ultracal it doesn't shrink and expands slightly. Anyway for some reason it didn't want to come out and the main guy who molded it was a premiere mold maker so I guess it was just a brain fart. Anyway those are knife cuts on the back of the helmet to get it out of the mold.

    I just meant it shouldn't have been cast off of at all. surely Don post had the people to recreate it without molding an original? And then the helmets where nowhere near the same size as the molds they took?

    They never used this mold for production it was destroyed after they poured my casting, or at least that is to the best of their memory.

    Well I am very happy to see these pics sufrace. I will now be repainting my helmet to further match this one. Brak's are there any more pics of this helmet perhaps from the right (if you are looking at it) side?

    but in a sense you can and should... i know that *i* don't know the person who has those items, and wouldn't be looking at them right now if you didn't post them here.

    so thank you, whether you like it or not!
