    As expensive as it to do a Boba, it will defenitely be part by part. I would be thrilled to lend a helping hand. Just make sure to research and ask questions before you buy stuff. Trust me. I bought several items that I thought looked great only to buy them again when I learned otherwise. See you Saturday night?

    where to start?

    cut out the dent and see if you can get a sharper dent casting from someone.... cut out the back slots and put a decent mq-1 casting in...... get an aluminum rangefinder stalk from someone (BKBT maybe?) chop out the vinyl/plastic visor and get a t-visor from somewhere...correct the shape by either securing the visor or putting in a brace at the bottom of the helmet...

    that should be decent enough to get it up to par...then just paint it up


    hope that helps/made sense

    You don't have to cut the key holes out (Back Slots) Buuuut.. It'll help Ventilate!

    Combat, I also have a DP96 and am abit unsure as to what you mean by 'cut out the dent' and 'correct the shape'?

    Could you elaborate please?

    For dent, try to replace it with a better replication made by someone else because the original doesn't have the sharpest detail.

    And do this to correct the shape..
