      I'd wager a bet there's more than a few 5 gallon pails of it up to the corner. If my memory serves me right we had a few hundred drums of it at one point hidden in one of the bunkers.
      Of course it was all OD or navy grey. :-} We used the medium hardener, spray it by midnight & drive it out the door in the morning.

          I've got two N5A's. One fits great with a ratchet; the newer one had to have the ratchet taken out of it to fit properly.

          I like a ratchet in the helmet, but if it fits better without it in there, then out it goes.

            2. Anyone can say they have 30, 40, even 50 years or more of experience doing anything. Watch: I've been a orthopedic surgeon for 45 years. See how easy that was? When it comes to believing A) the manufacturer's instructions/directions, or B) following the advice of someone on the internet who claims to know what he's talking about because he's been doing something that's slightly similar for 30 years, it's much more intelligent to choose Option A. Sorry, no disrespect is intended, but that's a fact.

            3. Not all paints are the same. Do you know exactly what kind of paint he was talking about? I don't recall seeing him say what brand he was using. Remember, I've been an orthopedic surgeon for 45 years, so I'm sure you wouldn't mind me operating on your brain, right? Surgery is surgery, right?

            Bottom line: Feel free to offer all the help, suggestions, tips, etc., that you feel qualified to provide. But don't get all hot under the collar when someone points out the obvious fact that following the manufacturer's instructions is generally a smarter idea than taking random advice found on the internet from people one doesn't know and doesn't have any real idea if they actually know what they're talking about or not.
            Well,this is how mine came out. T.C.

                  Every state is required by Federal law under Section 18 of the Occupational Safety and Health Act to follow OSHA.

                  Not every state follows NFPA guidelines, that is because they are guidelines not laws. Once they become a regulatory agency then they will be laws.
