    first off all:
    the raw cast helmet was made by volpin.
    and the gloves where made by me.

    after a loooooooong waiting time it finally arrived ;-)

    that's it for the helmet,now the gloves.

    because i don't own a vacuum form machine and won't be able to make one so i used multiple layers of cardboard and filled them with bondo.

    Were you able to get it chromed in Belgium or did you have to ship it somewhere? I ask because that's really nice chrome job and if the place is in North America, I'll potentially use them in the future.
