Yes , I'm from JB and thanks for the tip ! Glad those are not that hard to find lmao .
Hmmmm with the crushed surface u might need a lot of putty and work to get it to the correct shape unless you are happy with the look currently.That didnt go too well . There are like one or two pieces that came apart like the middle top portion of the visor. I probably rushed some parts a bit cous my sister randomly called saying she crashed her car again ( four times in a month wtf ) , at least shes okay .
Some even look like they dont have resin on it despite having resin applied multiple times . But can feel the resin there. But other than the middle top portion of the visor , the bottom part have one to two pieces broke off and the top part being heavier than the other parts of the helmet . It looks kinda great .
But lol for a helmet I folded while in Indonesia and survived being badly squashed in check in luggage , it still looked rather decent .
Anyways , I got in contact with my old schoolmates that moved to Singapore to help me get the kansai putty BeeBoy suggested to get . Should be here by next week hopefully.

Yep , can easily say that im glad of how the shape turned out the way im satisfied of . I was already planning to buy plenty of putty for more attempts lol .Hmmmm with the crushed surface u might need a lot of putty and work to get it to the correct shape unless you are happy with the look currently.
A chance to make a new one haha
WWAAAAIIIIITT!!! Even though you may need to use a lot of putty, do NOT apply that much onto it. Do light layers at a time and sand it into a rough shape, and if needed, add more. I am still sanding my helmet I made months ago because I added too much.Yep , can easily say that im glad of how the shape turned out the way im satisfied of .

But yea even if i do finish this helmet , ill definitely make another one , at least after my partial scholarship for uni kicks in .
Me too , I thought I was gonna give up ( tho my room at college is a lil too small ) . But hey , I still have to research for another fiberglass resin since the 3m ones dont exists here lmaoo. Since I'm much closer to the main city , I guess it's not too much of a problem .Yes! Just make sure you reinforce the inside with popsicle sticks or something so it doesnt have in, and get the outside to be the perfect shape before/when you resin. This will save you alot of time in the long run. Also test out some peices with the new resin so the same problem doesnt happen again. I am sooo glad you are getting this done! It is gonna be amazing!
