    many thanks to you for the net James!!! you just knew I would eventually find a fitting home for it!!
    I had to modify the police elasticated cover ... as the elasticity had gone from the rim band!! a little keyhole surgery a knot tied in the band and re-inserted back into its channel..et voila .... a pretty invisible fix!! very chuffed how well it looked!!
    Now due to the elasticated nature of the actual fabric... these are a complete pig to fit!!! it absolutely refused to fit my 89 dated example!! so I offered that up to the earlier 60 model helmet... the late one is HUGE compared!!! did they widen the "wings" of the sides on these later models!!???

    It sure does look well ,as for the white cover ,traffic control duties ? not entirely sure if that was all it was used for but yes mine does fit where it touches on my late run 1986 shell give it a day and ping gone ,fits better when i hold it down with the 2nd pattern net not sure if it is per regs though ,doubt it very much but it works for me if ..i fit it to the earlier shell it fits as snug as a bug in a rug
