    Thanks Jake, i could have messed around a little more but for now given the first picture in the thread it will do me fine,
    i will start the liner which should not be to much a little work here and there with the webbing i do need a sweatband and decent chinstrap which should complement the shell.

    Thanks James, my first one no doubt it will not be the last, i just people realise that something can be done with old pots its easy to pay big bucks for one done or minty originals but it feels good to know you have done one yourself thanks to all the input here.

    If it were me, I would leave it as is. The fact that the decal is partly visible makes it 10 times cooler in my opinion. maybe you could put a relic liner in it, make it a rustoration. but it is yours and you should do what you want with it. it is a cool lid though.

    Cheers bud, i tried my net and it pretty much smothered what i had done it was also kind of a loose fit, i have heard some folk say fit it inside the lid others inside the liner, talking of which time to dig that out now and make a start.
    Warbuff regards the German lid i may well leave it and it will have its own thread where i will put up better pics etc.
