    Helmet repair

    I was pretty close to buying a new helmet when I finally got my glasses to fit in my old one. Problem is the molding keeps falling off it. I reattached it with super glue but it doesn't hold after awhile and leaves an ugly white frostly looking residue. Anyone have a better suggestion for reattaching my helmet's rubber molding?

    Contact cement such as 3M yellow super weatherstrip and gasket adhesive would work well I believe.

    There is a two part super glue out there for hard to stick plastics and such. It has a prep "pen" that you wet both surfaces with and then let dry for one minute. Apply the super glue and it sticks.

    Use a small bead of clear RTV, that should do it.

    The Goop line of glues stick to most anything and hold real good for a long time.

    I would second the goop. It remains quite flexable, is pretty strong, and bonds well to most plastics. Should be plenty strong for molding. If you want to go for the overkill there is a product called pliobond (sp?) it is a very strong contact adhesive. Smells terrible and dries an ugly red/brown color. But is flexable and tough. I used it to glue the top on a convertable back together. Held for years.

    The Airmada is a decent budget helmet. You could do much worse, and really it is just as safe as a premium helmet. I where an RF1200 with transitions lens now, awesome set up.
