    Newbie, with a question

    Hi,
    New to the forum and it said to post some details so here goes.
    I am a Brit living in New York who's a Vikings fan ??? 40 yr old married with twins (one of each..Vikings fans in training...already boo the PACK!! ;D)

    Loved the game since I watched the Redskins/Raiders SB back in the distant past and played in the UK. Played DT and loved watching John Randle so became a Vikes fan.
    Been following them ever since.

    I do have a question and I am not sure where the best place to post it is.
    I have a football helmet I am looking to pait in Vikings colors. I can get the necessary decals (on ebay but if you know somewhere cheaper, let me know) but am struggling to find the paint. I can do the painting myself and I know I need urethane paint but not sure where I can get it to match the Purple...any ideas.
    Oh and the reason I am doing this is that I travel back to the UK each year to play in an Old Boys game and one of the other players is a Pack fan...and I want to see his face when I pull out a Vikes helmet.

    ok, the sexy little pixie thig scared me a little, especially as I found out Marrdro is a 40 year old man from VA (and I am 6 foot 300 lb man so little pixie does not apply in any way) but then I noticed he says that a lot. ;D
    Thanks for all the welcomes and look forward to using the forum over the coming years!
    Oh and I will be sure to post pictures of my helmet (oooeeerr!!)
