    Finally was able to finish the installation this evening. Had two rivets I just couldn't get in but went about it a little differently and got them in in a few minutes. So helmet shell, liner rings and all but 6 of the rivets are original. Leather liner and wool/felt ring and chin strap are new. I think it came out pretty good. Plan on wearing it when sweaty to get an "aged" look to it eventually.
