My question to RafalFett about the hood is where there 2 a whiteish one and a blueish one and where they different designs ? View attachment 195316

It is hard to tell if it's the same hood or not. It might be the lighting that is playing with us, but let's assume for now that the hoods are not the same in those images: the left is the Pre-Pro #1 and the right seems to be the Supertrooper one. This setup is/was used only on these suit and that extra material with velcro was used to 'seal' the helmet in the front, more exactly it was velcroed to the helmet (this implies that velcro was glued to the lower cheeks). We can see the PP1 hood in the MoM/SWtE exhibits (along with the wookie braids and the ammo belt):

So would it be right to assume that the PP1 hood would have been dyed blue with the flight suit and flack vest?

Yes, most of the parts were dyed for all suits. I say most, because in the Star Wars Costumes book we can clearly see an unmodified Supertrooper type belt:

While the book says the Supertrooper belt, this wasn't part of THE Supertrooper suit, but an unused/unconverted prototype. The Supertrooper belt had 4 rows of stitches - 2 on the margins and 2 on the center section and the one above has only 2 rows on the margins:

Repainted as the Pre-Pro #1:

And the same belt on the ROTJ Hero:
