    Default M1 nearly complete

    Hi folks, About a year ago I posted a WWII lid in poor shape with a decent liner. Now I have put together a decent McCord shell with bar tacked chin strap and a MSA liner together. The liner has a replaced sweat band. I added an original camo net. Still need a liner chin strap but this looks a lot better than the old shell. NH

    You repainted it?

    Nitram, No, not a repaint. I replaced the crappy shell with a nice McCord. The old shell is up for grabs. It has three weld repairs, an ugly green coat of paint and post-war chin strap. This is the liner I posted last year with another shell. NH

    Leon, Thanks! We have a great show here in Allentown - Forks of the Delaware at Ag Hall. You can locate parts for a reasonable cost to restore missing pieces on almost anything. NH
