97 DP BOBA FETT HELMET REPAINT

NEW
1ST PAINT JOB
AFTER A LOT OF SANDING AND SOME CUTS FOR VENTILATION
ALL PRIMED AND READY TO PAINT

THE SILVER LAYER
masking
first coat, almond
with some of the masking taken off
for the scratches I used electrical tape. It was on for about 7 hours before I took it off.
for the corners I used tacky glue witch is like Elmer's glue only thicker. I let it dry completely before painting.

Now after all that painting and waiting I got the idea to do some mods to give it a more custom look. The idea is to replace part of the visor opening with a grill type of piece. I think the concept looks good. Now if I can only recreate the look in real life.
