That seam on the back is where you get your head in. It cuts in around those triangular bump things and it's slightly too small to get my head in. What tools do I need to do a recut to make the hole a little bigger?

First, congratulations on the first steps on getting a helmet. The most suitable tool you can use to cut it would be a dremel with a carbide wheel.

Keep in mind that it may not look like this in hardware stores, but this wheel can cut through plastic. However, that's not the biggest threat cutting the helmet. It's how are you going to get around this area here.

Now, you could go the usual route and cut it horizontally like all the other helmets. You, on the other hand, want to preserve the "fins" as much as you can. It's not impossible, but it will be difficult to do this. If you can find a drill bit small enough, you can create a hole where the fins fork off in to separate directions.

Attached with the carbide wheel, you can try to orient the dremel tool vertically to make the cuts leading back to the "nexus" hole that you made. That could solve that issue. I never actually tackled a situation like this before where the helmet has so many geometrical shapes.

Good luck to you since this is the only helmet you have. You are going to need it.

Yeah, that stamped colored imprint would annoy the hell out of me. Make sure you get the right leather paint that doesn't flake off as easily.

Do you have a rotary tool w/ a cutting disk?
