M40 Camo Surprise

Article about: It is a nice looking lid now - so much better than the hideous 'camo' that was on there before. I know how hard it is to get remaining areas of more recent paint off by the acetone method...

    Too bad that using the acid removed some of the white paint too

    Good work,a massive improvement on what you started with.Just goes to show that in the right hands you really can "roll back the years" on some things.(although it never seems to work on a newsreaders face!!)

    Yes indeed. The camo paint was crap. Underneath you found the true helmet - nicely done. Keep what you have now! NH

    Kradspam sold it to me a few months ago and it is a world traveler helmet ..... now in Australia.
    It DOES look great and he did a great recovery job on it!!

    How did this end up back at the top, nice to see it again Glad you still like her Dan.

    Kyle, none of the white came off, it was ridiculously tough from what I remember. I used Acetone which is a solvent rather than an acid.

    I thought I'd make a bit of an effort so I pulled a couple of lids down and grabbed some shiny shiny

    With a bit of luck though, I'll have a new lid for Xmas too. It has a great pedigree and just looks awesome, watch this space
