    F1 Helmet with Desert Storm Daguet Cover+Car Door Trim Edging.

    Post by Gulf91 on Fri Aug 12, 2011 6:00 am

    Managed to track down some edging and am over the moon as it looks pretty much identical to the stuff used by the French Military bounce bounce bounce bounce

    I own 100s of various helmets-some extremely rare and some exotic but i must say that this humble helmet now ranks as one of my all time favourites Very Happy Very Happy

    Was there a specific keyword you used to search ebay for the door trim with the rough edges? Looks great!

    Having PC/Camera problems so cannot upload any pics Im afraid but from memory just did an Ebay search for rubber car door trim-think it comes in various sizes and for the life of me cannot remember which size I got(struck lucky first time I guess)

    Done a quick search now and these are just 2 examples of the 100s that come up and are Im sure similar to what I used

    I thought that this edging looked familiar. And then I found some in my garage, enough to do one of my French helmets. I had it left over from years ago when I worked for a company that built heavy off-road equipment. The edging was used in the machine cabs. I guess saving junk pays off sometimes.

    The height of the edging is 15 mm.

    The book is:

    Eric Micheletti and Yves Debay, Victory in the Gulf (London: Windrow & Greene, 1991), 130 pp.

    Lots of good colour images of American, French, and British troops.
