No posts in this category, so I thought I would add one. We have seen some great refurbished projects with before and after photos - but they have been scattered throughout the forum. Since these are all display type helmets, I thought I would put the post here.

Here is a helmet that I bought a couple years ago off ebay for the cowcatcher style mask. After removing the mask I thought I would clean up the helmet. The helmet was covered in old masking tape that had become brittle. The tape was painted. Under the tape was gold paint. Under the gold paint is the early MacGregor clear shell that you see.

Somebody really desecrated that clear shell before you got your hands on it.  Shame.  But great job on the restoration.  Would you share what products/techniques you used to bring it back?  Obviously lots of elbow grease, no matter what.
