    Hi guys,

    This has probably been asked a million times, but how do you attach a visor to the helmet?

    I have seen a photo of what looked like rivets holding it in place?

    My helmet arrived today and it looks like the "T" is not straight so i was hoping that the visor will square it up once its installed but as its going to be under a bit of pressure, i need to fix it securly.

    Any suggestions?

    No offense but it has been asked a million times. Normally I don't do this because I think its a bit obnoxious but seriously... if you use the search tool you'll come up with a ton of threads discussing this.

    Sorry to sound rude but this is something you can easily find with the search.

    Here ya go man!
    Hot glue it in to place first.Then just A plain jain silicone.2 part epoxy is great,but be carefull/very carefull. That stuff is so thin if you use to much,it will seep out the mandable A screw up everything.Trust me I know..... Then you get to start all over.

    No biggie man...normally I HATE seeing people post that automatic response to new folk's questions. This one was one of those rare times that I did it. No apologies needed man, I know how it is.
