Most of these are high school overstocks/rejects/project helmets that we stripped down to shell, cleaned, removed any decals/striping/adhesive, located the right mask, attached new clips and sometimes nose guards, added stripes and decals and buffed.
One is a rare Jaguars prototype (a look that obviously never saw the field). The Brownie Elf lid is a concept look.
I am going to rearrange the order at some point...but for now they're grouped by Division/Conference. No rhme or reason to which way they face, except that in some cases I didn't want a white warning label to show, Steelers logo needed to be showing, etc. I may still go back and change out some masks, i.e. Niners to gray, Lions to a darker blue mask, etc. Still waiting on a slow-shipping seller to mail my Panthers decals.
They're hung using (8) 5' painted pine (1") boards with screw hooks in the ear holes. I picked that up from how Derek Dumont displayed his helmets at his winery.
Overall, though, an incredibly fun project. Was awesome to have a new box/package from eBay on our doorstep for what seemed about every other day a week. Great bonding experience for us, too. Hope you like em!
