    i would suggest to thread rusty helmets with oxal acid - put water in a bucket and a few spoons of the acid - wait a few days or weeks till the helmet looks nice then finish it up with transparent varnish. If u do nothing the rust wont stop.

    Not on my M35. That might damage the decals etc. I'll take my chances with the rust.

    there is another method, with does no harm to the helmet/decals but stops the rust.
    put the helmet for a few weeks/month in pure water , this removes the salts out of the helmet(rust) and the rust will be slowed down or stops at all. If your work with this method u have to change the pure water every 4 weeks.
    The pure water wont attackt he helmet.

    But do as you like, its your piece of history and you alone can decide how long it will last.

    Of course water will attack the helmet, on what planet does ferris steel and H2O not lead to oxidation?

    I've never heard of pure water. I've heard of sterile water. Has the method he suggested been tried and tested? In not wanton to become a Guinea pig, lol.

    ok, maybe you missunderstood me- with pure water i mean distilled water.
    In distilled water are no salts, phophates or sulfats - and only this salts in the water lead to oxidation.
