Where do i override this?
Right now i want to override it using the html/layouts/joomla/modal/main.php but since helix3 is using bootstrap3 and joomla still uses bootstrap 2 im not sure how well this will go.

I solved it by doing my own Bootstrap3 modals. No Joomla code. I think Helix3 is missing a method to make modals. if you ask me you should try to make a plugin that can override standard Joomla modal-code.

anyway thanks for your answer

In theory you can install both bootstraps (v2 and v3) but it may break template layout or other conflicts may appear.
There are not compatible. Sorry, but this kind of customization is beyond support.
Beside Joomla 4 will use bootstrap 4.
