Where do they get those helmets?greenspun.com : LUSENET : Junkyard Wars : One Thread
Those silver helmets are great.
But are they UK-only? They look like batting helmets, but...I don't think they are.
Are these the UK-version of plastic "bump" caps?
Or are they adapted from something else for their visual appeal?

I believe they are in fact baseball batting helmets painted silver. Why they used batting helmets in a country that doesn't play baseball is beyond me though.
