spots around the vents need a little more sanding, as they look a little bumpy. and those rear bubble vents will need painting to match the rest of the helmet.

UPDATE!
Sanding done as well as tweaks made to other parts of kit.

So far so good. Once I give it a fresh set of eyes and minor tweaks I can install rear vents, mask and repaint.

TWEAKS:
-Sanded surfaces a bit more.
-Added more epoxy to the rear vents (inside and out), and sanded them.
-Added epoxy to widen the crest and center it better.
-Ran a dremel engraving bit to create some etching pattern in the nubs (for lack of better word?) at the mandible's jawline.
-Bought a replacement #3 welding visor off Amazon and cut it to shape. With the chicago srews mounted inside the visor's frame. i should get the visor to sit nice and flush.

This bucket has really been thru a lot. All of the small tweaks and adjustments (I think) have really paid off. Liking the look of the gold and red and the way the bottom of the T has that mid curve. Definitely one of a kind, good luck and I can't wait to see more pictures on this build Vod!

Needs dirt!! But then again I tell all the people that... only thing I see is the vents could maybe use just a smidgen more sanding. Just to smooth it a little more. But they still look world's better than they did. The helmet has come a long way. Well done vod. You're almost there.

Hmm.  I still see a few tiny adjustments that need to be made...

But overall, you've made miles of progress, vod.  I'm happy to see this bucket finally coming together.

Keep up the good work, vod. :D

Keep up the good work, vod. :D

Other than the minor filing of vents, weathering/blackwash, etc? Specific input would be appreciated.

I use Krylon's Matte Finisher to dull down gloss paint, or give a tiny bit of shine to flat paint.
