    Does anyone know what the best type of adhesive is to use on the ears and attach them to the bucket?

    Model glue? Epoxy? Duct Tape?

    I used JB Weld on my Mystery Helmet.
    I dabbed it on and kind of slid it up and down to work the resin smooth and flat.
    I screwed the right top ear piece on in case I ever want to change RF's
    That's what I did.
    Hope this helps.
    Thanks,

    What type of screws did you use for attaching the ear peices? how obtrusive are they?

    I drilled and tapped mine as well, screwing them in place from the inside. It's a good idea to do because if you have a chance to upgrade to metal ears later, you'll have that option.

    I used Goop, that is found at any hardware store and some small philip head scews. So I glued it down and used some rubber ended C-clamps to hold it down tight and put the scews in from the inside. Small enough not to poke through. I just pre-drilled the holes in the helmet and marked the location on the ear parts and started a small hole there for the screw to go in. Seems to hold just fine.
