    Blue needs to go up on the RF side around the top of the round.

    Might want to stick the tape to some clothing prior to putting it on the helmet. That blue tape always pulled off the lighter blue color when I masked off for the darker blue. It helps reduce the stickiness a little. I know this has been suggested before.

    Re: 1st bkbt paint attempt

    thanx guys,i decided to repaint the light blue.i was not happy with the finish.i wet sanded it all again then wet sanded some with 1000grit then 2000.the finish is more glossy and smooth.i should post some pics maybe tommorrow after i sand the blue off my fingers to get a nice line between the brow ridge and the rnb'd dome i used pinstripe to get a more even line.bkbt suggested that for curved areas and worked great.

    thanx Vince once again:thumbup

    Looks pretty nice, gives me a warm feeling to see what mine could potentially look like once I'm finished construction and ready to shoot some paint.

    Any chance you could suggest where a fellow Ontarian could acquire some rub-n-buff? 8)

    Sorry to say guys, but I'm not familiar with either store.

    So I highly doubt that Ottawa has either a Loomis or a Curries. What we do have is Michaels and Wallacks.

    Michaels carries RnB here in the states, they probably have it there too in Canada.

    Is there a particular name brand that I should be looking for? Or is it just the store "no name brand"?

    There is only one maker of Rub N Buff...its hard to miss. It's called Rub n Buff. There's no other brand. The color you want is Silver Leaf.
