    I've got one of the target helmets back from halloween and I've decided it's time to repaint it.
    Where do I even start?
    • Where can I get a longer view finder pole?
    • Where do I get the stud on the left side?

    The stud, or borden connector can be found on shape ways.

    Here's a thread that details the paint process of the helmet (ESB style) using the stencils.

    On accident. It snapped when I was removing the visor.
