    Great work Glenn, looking at the original photographs, I would never have believed that this helmet would have restored to this level of condition! If I ever see a what looks to be a clapped out lid in my neck of the woods, I will post it of to you for the miracle treatment! Well done, Leon.

    The Phoenix Helmet! Excellent job, by any way of looking at it. I remember many many years ago trying to clean one with Naval Jelly....was NOT a good idea I This one you've got will look fine on a shelf now!
