Thanks Bud i kinda like it the way it is myself, but i know me too and anythings possible
I wouldn't touch it either Phill to be honest. Personally, I believe that it would lose all the character that it has. The wire adds so much too, if you were to repaint it then it would not look so good. The pitting is quite heavy so after a repaint, the overall look would not be that impressive. For a repaint project, I would suggest finding a cheap(ish) helmet that has a good surface. Maybe a police lid for example, nice coat of black, slap on some decals and there you go. Alternatively, a half decent combat shell that doesn't break the bank, but again, with a good surface to work on...that's the key.
Blimey that is one shiny lid you have there! You could use it as a mirror for when you get shaved!

Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader
