    I have what I believe to be a rare M42 BGS helmet. When I came across it, it appeared to simply be an M42 WW2 reproduction helmet, but upon further inspection I discovered what appears to be an authentic chin strap and headliner. After a little bit of discussion in this thread it was determined that this helmet might be a rare example of an early BGS helmet, made from perhaps a reconstituted or surplus M42 lid from WW2.

    Judging from these attached photos can anyone else confirm these suspicions? If this helmet is indeed what I believe it to be; I'd like to restore it to the original BGS color and remove the fake TR era decals. Is there a place where I can buy paint that's close to being era authentic? I also have questions about removing the paint that's on the shell currently; would paint stripper be fine so long as the liner and chin strap are removed? I also would like to know how to remove the liner and chin strap without damaging anything.

    Sorry for so many questions, thank you in advance.
