    Looks like you've succeeded in repairing your helmet! Great job Eric!

    Now DON'T DROP IT AGAIN!
    Dude, I have taken multiple precautions to prevent another mishap! One is using foam from the interior packaging of materials shipped for work that have a soft base and walls, this way, it cannot go from side to side. I have actually just completed sanding with 800 grit wet paper and I am going to hit it with primer to see how I made out. Keep fingers crossed gang!!

    The EXACT same thing just happened to me..... Look at my post, but my cracks only went to the fiberglass layer, it didn't break apart like yours... I will use epoxy like you did, I was gonna use my drimel to go down to the glass and refill the bondo, but your idea seems easier.

    Well, after working on it all day, I suppose it could be worse, but I am not really happy with it either. I have lost all of the sharp lines that I had before and now the cheeks look soft and not as rigid. Granted, I worked on it all day and taking a break to think about it will help, I just hope I can get the sharp angles that I had before. In any event, the photos are below. THanks again for all the support!!

    It looks pretty good to me! I would go ahead and finish this one. By the time you get it painted, it will take very close scrutiny to even notice.

    glad to see you got it mostly fixed.

    be careful in the future with flimsier buckets. You really should make an effort to reinforce the whole inside.

    That way if it cracks next time it will be a crack, not cracked apart.



    Yes, it will add weight, but save a lot of hardship. My heftier buckets have mostly all taken some sort of spill or gotten bumped and they are all in one piece

    Once you have her all painted up, you may not even notice it at all!!

    Heck when I had to get my friends helmet painted in time for a con, I left out the ear details and Joe public and Fett savvy folks didn't even notice.

    get'er done

    Kandosii, Kehbo. seeing as i got here late, i WAS gonna suggest to patch it "Ugly/sloppy":
