    Many thanks James, I am all for recycling garden items. Great reference picture mate which clearly shows the look I was trying to achieve,I do think I need to age my net though.

    nice job opex, I like the fact that you didn't just do the same old restoration you see on every helmet, you added a nice touch to it with the netting well done!
