    Thats what I do with Mitchell covers,hold the helmet over a boiling gas kettle and the steam acts like an iron and shapes the cover but doesn't soak it so rust doesn't start underneath,also i just wanted to add Mark there's no such thing as a postwar MSA liner,its a Micarta Division Westinghouse liner,hence the impregnated tab with the date/W/stamp and Micarta,sorry if it sounds picky,only putting you straight Mark.......
