Hi Guys
Thought some of you might be interested in a CVC helmet I refurbished a while back. That I had found in a flea market it was rough but was pretty much all there except for the mic.

Good job, very much approve. Old style mic, too, not many around in presentable condition. Based on an original, or was art your "conception"?

This kind came a little later...

Thanks Doug
the art is a combonation of graphiti I've seen on helmets of the time. At first I thought about using the yellow Cav shield, but thought it would be more interesting with the 11th Cav shield with the red and white field. Things like the short timers calender and the playboy bunny I had seen on other helmets. The cards I just thought look cool especially when I painted it to look like they're fitted under the mic housing. And Ok I had to add my one of my own nicknames "Jester" Smile
