Alright, after having some problems with the visor cause it's my very first experience in all this world of "troopers", I've manage somehow to disassemble the helmet and to take out the visor to apply a new polarized cover to it. Fortunately the bond resisted the handling just fine, and after the process with the visor, I just assembled everything else again. Obviously along the process the bond at the top and laterals of the helmet was completely damaged, but well, it wasn't so grave and I just had to apply paste again and voila hehehe...here the photos...

Well, here is my update to this project. First of all I've just finished to seal and sand all the bonds, both the visor plates and all the junctures of the helmet. I also made the sealing of the back "ear holes", so I'm just about to begin the applying of the primer.

I decided also to apply paste to all the visor plate, so I will be able to avoid that there will be a notorious difference between the bond and the original plastic of the helmet, and I do believe it looks much better; here the photos of my advances till now...

Just wondering....Are you going to cover up the screws on the side of the helmet?
