Possible mk7 helmet production

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

 

Before I commit to this and post in the for sale forum, I want to gauge the interest in lightweight fibreglass British mk7 helmets.

 

These will only weight approx 400g and be made from fibreglass cloth and matting. Lightweight yet reasonably strong.

 

I have the chance to borrow a mk7 for 24hrs from a friend in the stores at the local camp haha

 

for my other work see this thread; (the mk7's will be better with a smooth resin finish though)

Let me know if there is a market and what people would be prepared to pay for a copy helmet

 

cheers

 

Jon

I have wondered about vac forming as an option for this, just not sure if its strong enough.

Should be if you use the correct gauge sheeting
