97 DP BOBA FETT HELMET REPAINT
1ST PAINT JOB
AFTER A LOT OF SANDING AND SOME CUTS FOR VENTILATION
ALL PRIMED AND READY TO PAINT
THE SILVER LAYER
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.
before clean up
cleaned up a little
All cleaned up and painted with red primer and the masking taken off.
