Hey guys, let me start by saying that when i ordered my Rubies Jango helmet, I wasnt expecting astounding quality or craftsmanship, but rather something that I could use as a base for a fun little customization project....I found a deal on ebay and ordered the thing for something close to 50 bucks (which isnt too terrible for what Im looking to do) so I bought it.
I cant seem to find any reliable pics of what the Rubies Jango looks like in its new, boxed form. I've seen post-modification pictures, but nothing more than file photos from the manufacturer when I look for pics of the standard helmet. Now I know that there are 2 versions, and I didnt get the one that is a two-piece mask. The one I got is labeled as the "Rubies Deluxe Jango Helmet"
In the few pictures I can find, the mask is shown to have a full T Visor, but I stumbled across an old thread on here that says that those pics are bogus and photoshopped, and the helmet in fact has only a partial T Visor....this was kind of frusterating, but its nothing some modification wont fix. The helmet also apparently lacks the pinstriping that is shown in the pictures.
Can anyone provide me with some sort of UNALTERED picture of what I should expect in a couple days when my package gets here? Again, I've done enough research to know that the helmet I ordered is far from perfect, but it will also suffice for what I need. I would really like some sort of idea of what to expect and how much work is cut out for me....
**As a side note, I've also been reading about the wonders of "Rub n' Buff" and I'm wondering if it will work with a helmet like this? Or is it mainly suited for the higher end fiberglass kits? Thanks alot for your help everyone!
