Hey guys, the helmet arrived today and I just had a few things I wanted to run by you all.
Firstly, The shell is massive! I can't make out the maker mark and size, but it looks like its a size 68. There is a significant gap between the liner band and shell, like the band is too small for the shell. Does that seem normal to you?
Also, the colour of the shell seems lighter around and behind the aluminium liner band. Do you think this may be an overpaint?
And finally, I just wanted to double confirm that the decal is good.
The maker should be EF based on the font of the lot number. Not sure on the size.
Congrats on the new lid!
Thanks Sgt Rock. I think I can make out the EF on the side of the skirt, but its very lightly stamped
