Re: Reworked DP95

Devilstar2k2, tell us about the customization you did. I'm sure I'm not the only curious one.

Re: Reworked DP95

Well, the first thing I did was pry off the ear cap/RF with a buck knife... Then wet sanded all of the paint off. Then I heated the backside of the helmet up with a hair dryer, and stuffed a pair of flip flips inside of the helmet, arranged to splay the sides of the helmet out. It sat like this for a couple of days to form.

When I got back to it, I cut a 9 inch steel craft hoop in half and hot glued one half to the bottom ridge of the helmet to hold the new splayed shape in place (plastic has a memory). I also filled in the sections that said Don Post, and Lucasfilm in with a small amount of Bondo.

From here it was pretty standard business... Cut the visor/keyslots out, taped off the opening with masking tape, primed and painted.

Peeled tape, added green welding visor and screen mesh (keyslots), and thats pretty much it. smile

Re: Reworked DP95

Its a DP95... Don Post 1995... Sorry, I thought folks would have known that over here. At TDH (the dented helmet) everything is shortened to initials. lol... Bad habit to get into, I guess.

Re: Reworked DP95

N.....YT?  lol.
yeah at the dented helmet everyone is costumers, so everyone knows what everyone else is talking about.....kind like if you go to the math nerds website and find out that they are all speaking in binary code......

Thanks....I'll have to see if I can get one....
