    Hi fellow sufferers,

    You may recall a relic helmet I posted in this forum a couple of months back where I thought the decal on it was legit..... well it wasn't and thus educated I couldn't stand a round bottomed fake on what was otherwise a nice relic Danish resistance helmet that someone had "spiced up"

    So to quote Shakespeare, it was " out damn spot, out I say" ...... and this is the result. Pretty good. eh?
    It was surprising just how easy it came off and how resilient the original paint still is - I was worried that it may be damaged in the attempt but not so.

    So guys, has a fraud lid now regained it's legitimacy?

    I don't blame you either-I would have scrubbed it off myself rather than look at it! lol Looks a whole lot better now!

    Thanks guys..... here's how I did it.
    First, I heated the decal up with a hot air gun ( carefully ) then used a small brass bristle bush to loosen it all.
    Then a cotton bud ( Q tip ) dipped in acetone & rolled over the decal scooping up as much as I could quickly as the acetone dried
    ( repeat several times with new cotton buds each time until the decal is virtually gone - transferred to the buds )
    Then used turps ( turpentine ) which I tested first on another area of the paint and scrubbed with a scotchbrite pad until all was clear
    then scuffed the surface with dry 00 steel wool and that was it.

    You know, the closer I look at that first pic, the more I think that SS decal might be legit...............
