Hi guys!

Very nice forum here, really!

I´m looking for the best way to fix the Dome and the neckbrace @ my Don Post Vader helmet ( vinyl Classic).
The Dome should not been blown away ( by wind or something) and the neckbrace should be changed by myself ( in Armor).

Someone here some pix???

We need some photos of your current setup and your dome mounting system. Is this an original or a modified recast of a Don Post Deluxe?

Are you using Velcro?

It is the Don Post on the right.

On the left is my Rubies helmet. Mod still in process.


I´d like to use Velcro but... If there is something that works better... :rolleyes

Here is a newer pic of my DP:

I'm very confused. The unresolved link you posted takes me to a picture of a redhaired girl.

So are you trying to make the Rubie's more like a DPCA? I don't follow.

Old Picture, NEW link ( Look up to the first post)!!!

Rubie's more like a DPCA? No.

I´m still looking for a good way to fix my Dome/ Neckbrace @ my DP Mask.

By the way: Is there someone who can tell me what kind of glue can I take for my new lensen???

Personally, I don't like mixing techniques for fiberglass/resin with plastic or vinyl. Plastic is a very different animal. It doesn't sand very well. Some people would rather a fiberglass cast instead and do the dome work. That is exactly what I had: with the Golden Armor kit at: ... vt433.html

I did an eradication of the mounting system and a baldification of the skull using an epoxy clay called Aquamend which is a fiberglass repair compound. However, as much as Aquamend may stick to certain plastics, plastic will outflex it and eventually you will lose the weld. I wouldn't advise harming the plastic.

In fact, original condition Don Post Classic Action helmets are not easy to find nowadays.
