I found a bunch of old 21C kevlars I had so decided to modify them. I took out the old elastic straps so I could put in some grosgrain instead.

Can anyone recommend something to mount my new chin straps?

Can't you use the 21st hardware ?

I had to remove the old mount inside to get the look I am going for, plus the 21C helmets were all single strap.

Here are the examples I am using to upgrade my helmets.

Ok...simple enough. You need some 1/8th buckles. These have 2 ends and a center bar. Take your grossgrain and loop it around one of the ends. leave just enough overlap and glue it to itself. Take the other end of the grossgrain and glue it to the inside of the helmet. Do this on each side and these will replace the posts that held the strap to begin with. If you need 1/8th buckles..give me a holler.
