    This is how it looks so far, iv removed the gray pain completely from the outside and started working on the inside, its a slow going process, but its fun to do it.

    Thanks, you should use paint remover, you aply it on the paint, wait 5-10 minutes, start scratching and it will peel right off.

    Hi, just finished the work on the interior of the helmet, couldnt find any markings what so ever, because the interior is a bit damaged. ill keep looking.
    This is the end of phase 1.
