    Would someone please post some pics of a Rubies face with an SPFX or GH dome on it. That is, given the attachment mechanisms for the various helmets are interchangable, heck, even a photoshopped pic would do......
    Even if it looks good, what are my chances of getting just a dome from GH or an SPFX, I'm thinking slim.

    Not all that slim. You'll have to be patient, but every so often I see just a dome or just a face plate turn up. Watch the Junk Yard, and watch eBay, and again... be patient.

    Good luck and good hunting.

    Can I ask why you would want to put a dome like that on a Rubies? (no offence intended)

    Cause I'm a cheap bastard. :cry

    I think the face is acceptable but the dome is what is terrible, just curious to see if a real dome can wake up that faceplate.....

    In my humble opinion, the Rubies' face plate is really good. Sure it's got a few kinks that need worked out, but the features are among the sharpest out there. I think it would look great. :thumbsup

    I don't know if this will help you or not, but here is my reworked Rubies face with a fiberglass dome from a CT Vader on it.
    I think these two look pretty good together and would like to see one with a SPFX or GH dome as well.

    And one pic with the original dome

    Tell ya what... when I get my JBV2 I will post a pic with it on my Rubies faceplate. :D A JBV2 is practically the same as an SPFX dome if my understanding is correct.

    Gee, the dome ridge on the CT is just as soft as it is on the Rubies... Not flaming, just an observation.

    Given that the Rubies is highly re-worked, it still has lineage - even some other lids don't seem to have that at the moment. :p

    No Flame taken, The soft ridge is one of the reasons I replaced that dome on my CT faceplate.

    <div class='quotetop'></div>
    Thank you.

    I may be wrong about this, but that dome looks like the DP Deluxe recast to me....or even the rubies dome itself. Doesn't seem like the GH or SPFX from GH dome at all.

    It is a DP Deluxe recast, you're right Dave.
