    Hey there guys. I just bought this m40 helmet which is completely rusty and has a hole and a crack in it. But I am planning to repair it. I dont have it you so I dont have any foto's except the ones that were on ebay but I cannot download them. Here is the link to the helmet on ebay, as soon as I got the helmet here I will post pics if you guys want.

    So, do you guys have suggestions in what style I should repair it?

    I'd leave it as it is, it's a nice honest relic!...
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    TY for posting the pics KradSpam.
    And maybe you guys are right and maybe I should keep it as it is. What do you think it's worth? I payd 30 euro's, and with the shipping it was 46 in total.

    30 euros is an OK price for a relic like that!....

    I had one almost the same like this. My uncle attached a long wooden stick to the helmet. For that the 2 holes.

    People used the helmets to clean out their cesspools. :-)

    As Paul and Cameron posted, I would leave it as it is.
    Regards,

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    Leave it. A good relic. Plenty of intact shells out there with no collector or relic value that can be restored.
