Thank you, Herr Telemark.

I checked the tracking number and it says I am getting the liner today.
Can you all tell I'm excited?

Liner installation pics coming tonight!

I have always cursed and struggled each and every time I have tried fitting liners to German helmets and always end up with loose pins etc so will look forwards to seeing how its done properly :D :D

When I got home today, I saw waiting for me a package from ATF.

Unfortunately I forgot all about my friends here on the forum and forgot to take progress pics. The helmet liner took about 5 minutes to install, was not difficult at all.

Very impressed with the quality of the ATF liner. No complaints here.

I'm calling this one finished!

Thanks for reading along and for the words of encouragement along the way.
