    i clean one small spot on the rim of the helmet... it appears to be a gray color underneath the black paint... could that possibly be the original color? and should i keep going? or leave it as is... thanks for the help

    dbale, can you post a clear picture of the removed paint area? Grey as what most people would imagine is not a color used for german helmets. Perhaps the photo will clarify the shade of grey you are referring to. Feldgrau color used for a majority of the helmets was almost a very dark deep green and did not resemble grey to alot of people. So we don't guess we need the photo.

    You appear to be going the right way. After all, it's gotta be better than what you started with!! Remember,'Slow and steady wins the race.'

    Fingers crossed, Ned.
