$32!? Absolutely insane.
$7.75 on Blick Art Materials. It's where I get all my Montana paints. My last order was two cans of paint and it was just a bit over $5 in shipping. I'm in Florida as well for reference.
It's a really great paint. It's dries quickly and hard. Pretty impressed with it. I went with the "military green" color.

As I mentioned before, I am trying to use a 12 mm jump ring for the lens. At first I thought it was too big because it did not fit in the hole but then I noticed in image the ring is set behind the shield.
So here is what a 12mm jump ring looks like set behind the shield (with duct tape). Not a perfect look but It might help others with sizes.
very nice MJF, what material did u end up using between the helmet and blast shield?
You could also take a piece of soda bottle plastic and spray paint the back side black so the painted side touches the fabric and the unpainted side has the ring on it. That way the plastic isn't super thick but it gets the job done.

Added the strap camera and thickened the box.
Been told the originals were cast from poly plastiflex which would explain deformaties and squashing in pictures.
