It seems pretty thick, but this is the only helmet I have ever interacted with. What would I know? lol

Any advice on how to install the ears? They are just caps, no RF.

Thanks! Any suggestions on getting stripes on? I realized that taping it straight was harder than it looked. I plan on having a thick khaki stripe down the middle with two thinner stripes on either side.

Well if laying the tape is hard you could slwYs cover the dome in tape and cut away the area you want to paint using a flexible ruler to make straight lines.

Not a bad idea at all. I will have to try that.

Thinking about re-painting. Damage on this one doesn't look right to me...
