Ok everyone on the off chance that I can either find someone to lay up a fiberglass bucket for me or even less likely decide to attempt one on my own, I need a few bits of advice. I know you need to have a tool (mold) from which to work, so this boils down to two basic questions.
1) What (inexpensive) mass produced helmet would be the best to use as a tool.
2) Would I have to modify it before I get it fiberglassed? (some sort of reinforcement or hardening process maybe?)
