Fibreglass Helmet Repair
I have a possibly 'unusual' problem. I have a fibreglass helmet for a costume, it made it 4,500 miles from Newcastle to Dallas Texas, but fell on a tiled floor in the hotel.
The helmet is now cracked, the crack is all the way through (the helmet is maybe a quarter to a third of an inch thick) and may actually be an inch or two longer than in this original photo. So I was wondering if there is any way to repair it?
I should also probably clarify that I did not make this myself. To be honest I'm not really the most DIY savvy (though I do try my best), so a somewhat simple solution would be preferable.
I have looked on YouTube and seen the whole process of sanding the area around it and using strips of fabric with resin to repair it. However the helmet doesn't need to be the strongest thing on the planet, it's not like I will be using it to actually protect my head, also if the crack was sealed but still visible then that wouldn't be the end of the world as it could be seen to be 'battle damaged'. I am also fully willing to find the type of spray paint used and repainting the repairs.
Thanks for any advice you may give,
P.S. On an unrelated point, if it can be repaired then I may make a mold of it over the summer and make a carbon fibre replica, as I hear that will be stronger.
