I'm happy to be starting a new ESB commission. This is my first helmet post-Celebration VII, and I'm
rejuvenated, revitalized, renewed, and refreshed! It's another FPH2-ESB and this one is for Jbdubz.
I'm going to call this DAY 2 since I did all the prep work yesterday. Anyone who's seen one of these helmets
up close knows that there isn't really that much prep to do. The casting is just superb, and the only thing that's
really needed on the lid itself is to cut out the visor area. I did that, as well as thinned out the edges. I also
sanded the backs of the ears to make sure they are nice and flat. I drilled some holes in the ear platforms,
and that was pretty much it. Here's the kit.
Not shown are the very nice smoke visor, and a second RF topper by TerminalFettler. I'll be finishing both toppers.
There's also a machined Borden connector on its way to me.
It's pretty stormy here today and the humidity is ridiculous. Since I need to spray some primer, I'll wait until tomorrow
and hope for better weather. There will be a lot more to come!
