    It shouldn't scratch easily as the same lacquer is used on planes.

    One of the hardest wearing finishes possible.

    Looks tidy that. I keep considering getting my Viking dipped as it’s my tig helmet and doesn’t see the abuse my speedglas does

    Do it yourself in a big bucket.
    It's not as hard as you imagine and is satisfying. The thing that matters more is using 2pac products to make the finish last.

    Inside the visor at the top there is 2 clips above the screen.

    Push them and the front silver cover will pop out. From there same clips again and the lens will come out.

    Then the battery are slid in either side on 2 inserts.

    Hope this makes sence

    If it was very cheap then ideal as they are a nice lid.

    Yep the silver tabs are the clips then there is a second set for the lens to pop out.

    Washing up liquid was a saviour to get them back in.

    After much frustration, I ended up just filing out the paint in the hole .. that would've saved some time :laughing:

    Did the front cover in silver, not happy with that so im respraying that white.
