    Default The cleaning of an M1C helmet

    Hi, i spent a big portion of the afternoon cleaning my m1, after some hard work, lots of scratching and dedication these are the results
    A major part of the superficial rust was removed, leaving the helmet now a lot cleaner, and with a smooth surface.

    Did you source a liner for it, you might have said before, but the old memory is going

    Hi, no problem, i tought you might like to see the helmet cleaned, i found a good period liner for it, but its not very cheap, im currently biding on a german m40 helmet, after that ill go for the liner.

    HI Nuno.

    Yeah it's looking good, oh and good luck with the bidding war, I've given up on Nazi lids for a while, I find I can get 2-3 decent M1's ,for the price of a Half decent M42.

    Life is full of difficult choices

    Be lucky
