    watch the cargo hold here... folks are always selling something

    a typical fiberglass helmet seems to range from $100 - $300 depending on where you get it from and how fancy it is. you then have to sand / paint / etc...

    don't buy one on ebay unless you know the seller is a well respected tdh crafter. e.g. don't buy amiadfilter. you'll probably be dissapointed.

    I think he means, why would you want a sterling silver helmet. Seems like that would be REALLY expensive.

    No ones ever made a sterling silver bucket (to my knowledge) there is a maker here who makes awesome aluminium helmets, as mentioned before your best bet is to keep an eye on the cargo hold, there are always good quality helmets for sale if you check back often enough, best of luck and welcome aboard

    wow, that was wicked confusing

    is that your way of saying "i thought they'd be way less than that?"

    anyway, no... sterling would be a **** material... too soft

    hand schaub does em in case aluminum though. mmmm, aluminum. can't WAIT to get mine!!

    Ok so ya'll think its a bad idea with the sterling silver helmet..Well me think,well ya wouldn't have to paint the parts with scratches.Then again it might be too soft.Alright yall decide.If its a (worth a try) or (don't waste time on it).
    You decide,BFett

    This is why you start with primer, then do a metallic silver coat of paint. Mask off some scratches using masking tape, then paint over it with the color you want the helmet to be, remove the tape, then sand the edges of the scratches a bit to make it look more natural.

    i definitely think it would be too soft. silver isn't the toughest thing out there... one drop and i think your bucket would be history. not to mention the $$$ on that much silver!

    cold cast or straight up aluminum would both definitely make the silver base code redundant, if that's the route you're looking to go.

    Although a sterling silver helmet would have amazingly effective anti-werewolf properties, it's probably not the best way to go.

    If the picture is over limits, my guess is it will not be displayed.

    Brandon Fett, you need to stop being a noob. Try to clarify your questions more, and you will get clear answers.
