    Things I know and things I need to know

    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?)

    Thanks much.

    Get this - http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/showthread.php?t=16673

    Then lay some FG in it for reinforcement.

    $95 is an absolute STEAL for one of Sarge's helmets. Good bucket, good price.

    You CANNOT get a better deal on a good bucket than Sarge's resin kit.
    You'd probably wind up paying almost as much for a Rubies. . . and there's no comparison as to quality.
