And what to do with them, I've just bought another one :oooops:
I've got about half a dozen old lids in various cupboards upstairs and can't bring myself to throw them away plus I can't be arsed advertising them for pennies and going through the hassle of trying to unload them on eBay...... what would you do ?

Hanging baskets, fill em up with marijuana plants in a sunny aspect....Then a few months later you will have a sunny aspect although slightly chilled. ;)

I always take out the inner liner, drill a hole in the top and put in a lamp socket. This makes very nice individual hanging lamps

Put them in a box (preferably the original box they came in if you're sad like me :hehe: ). Then put them away so that you can find them again several years later.......and remember all the good times you had wearing it! :old: lOl

Emergency services often require old helmets for emergency practice drills. Enquire at your local ambulance or fire station.

Any of the above, not particularly fond of hanging baskets made out of old helmets though, or just harden the fuck up and stick em in the dustbin :)

I kept my old ones for years, but realised that a good clear out is good for the soul. The only thing they'll remind you of, is why you bought a new one...... ;)
