Wow... hard to believe it was almost 8 years ago that I worked on a P1 helmet! How time flies. I was lucky enough to get another of George's castings (although the mold was in pretty rough shape by then. One of my biggest concerns has been the laser housing. I feel like it is not the same from helmet to helmet, which would make sense as it was added after the fact. I have seen many iterations of it, but never felt very confident in doing it myself. However, I lucked up and got in contact with someone who owns one of the original laser clusters used in P1. They let me borrow it and I molded a mesh housing roughly around it to get the shape I wanted. I then refined the shape a bit and have laid the first layer of fiberglass. Once that is done, I'll do a beauty-coat in bondo and glazing. Still a lot of work to go, but at the very least, I am finally starting!

Fiberglass is set... Probably went a bit overboard with the resin, but wanted everything perfectly in place. Now to start cleanup and sculpting on top of the wire mesh to get the final look. I am super happy with how strong this piece is!

Looking forward to seeing how this one turns out. I was lucky enough to get a stunt bio on one of the last runs George did. I painted it up but can't bring myself to do the laser housing. I have the lasers and everything.
