    Well, you could use electrolysis to remove some of the rust and then use a clear matt varnish to help prevent further rusting.

    There is a big discussion and tips on this method in the Metal Detector forum.

    I wouldn't use electrolysis for this helmet. The helmet has places where the metall is very thin. Electrolysis will create holes in your helmet because electrolysis is quite "strong". I would use wd-40 (lubricant) to keep the rust from eating your helmet and keeping some of the damaged metall in place.
