Default Fun thing to do with an old helmet.

I really liked this helmet, so I decided to do something hopefully interesting with it. I've got a grinder, and I know how to use it, so...

I'll "mount" this to a board (get some Tech 7 or similar) and maybe frame it.

Has anyone done anything similar?

That looks brilliant! Never mind hanging it in the shed, put it in the living room, hall, kitchen or somewhere prominent.

This is my very unoriginal attempt at doing something 'artsy' with an old lid:

That gave me an idea!
Living where I do, hunting is huge and people have deer, elk, moose etc. skulls/antlers mounted all over the place and hanging over the fireplace etc. Maybe I'll mount a few lids for the basement/man cave. Maybe not even permanently mount, just some sort of rack type thing. 6 months of snowy winter so I need somewhere for the lids...may as well be on the wall as under the stairs!

Stick a car airbag under it and see far into orbit you can launch it.

or stick a large banger in it,and see how "safe" it really is,

Thats awesome!

Maybe cut off the back half of the helmet then glue a pic of old jack behind the visor.
