    Looking good, now the tricky bit, take a stiff brush and gently remove some of the excess until you get a reasonable even coating all over, this is a complete trial and error proceedure as you might find there will be spaces that need to be refilled, all this just for a hobby, are we mad or what, but wait till you see the finished results
    G'day Dave, Mad? Definately!! Yes very much trial and error and haveing neither doing this before or even handling an A/OX helmet i was somewhat flying blind but it's done now, i dont know if it's too much or what but i'm pretty happy with the result,will post some more pics.

    Cheers Phill

ID:	260824As Dave had said earlier i had to remove a bit of A/OX here and there and fill in a few bald spots but for this i just used the top coat and this is pretty much the end result.
