    New weathering done in a frenzy after watching the new trailer on Thursday. I always thought it looked a little too clean before. I'm really liking it now.

    Man you do nice work! It looks so much more screen accurate. You are making me want to mod my POS stunt helmet I got off ebay a while back that drives me nuts.

    Thank you! I tried to capture the subtle weathering in the photo and I think it worked out pretty well.

    A new comparison pic with the newer weathering. This one shows the differences a little better.

    Once I got the ears off, I just trimmed down the excess with my dremel. You could probably use a hobby knife or a small saw too. The hardest part was actually getting the ears off. They're on there pretty good.

    Good thing my bucket's left ear cap accidentally fell off. LOL. problem now is how to take the other ear piece off. thanks! Would definitely be looking back to these post/pics for reference. Great job and thanks a lot!
