    Default Oxalic (rust) Acid project helmet? Barn Found..

    Hello Everyone,

    I got this helmet on the WAF a couple years ago, and I think I would like to try Oxalic Acid on this helmet. I would like to know how much I should use, and what it will do to the remaining leather inside?

    I think this helmet could have good results if I used Oxalic Acid, any thoughts on this?

    I don't know for sure, but I believe this Helmet was found in a barn.

    All comments are appreciated.

    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

    Hello Rylan
    Firstly I would say that better way to upload pictures to the forum area.
    The helmet will get back approx 20% of original paint, and it looks like a white camo.
