where did you get those pads?
They look like acquired military surplus lol.
That is a fact. They are indeed military helmet (kevlar) pads. Most surplus stores will carry these for $5 - $15, depending on new/used status, age and type.
Here's where it's at today. Got a lot done. Visor's ready to be installed and I've got two coats of paint on the helmet (after fixing the crack). Seems sturdy as a rock, again. (Just like my head, hooray)!
So, here's some pictures for you, visor then helmet. I think I'm going to end up putting the edge around the visor tan like Falin did (a tan color to match my green/tan motif).
Not too bad for a first-time tinter!
I'll post more tomorrow after I've finished painting and attached the visor and pads. (Probably won't get to weathering until Friday, though).
