    The best visor for MLC helmet?

    Hello all, I was just wondering where and how I could purchase the best visor for a ROTJ MLC helmet. You can pm or post here if you'd like. I figure that someone has to make a visor that would be the perfect fit for my new bucket. Thanks for your help and I appreciate even the smallest of information.

    I recommend a dark green welding shield for any bucket. It can be cut with regular scissors and its only about 6 or 7 dollars. Omark makes one you can get online.

    The green Omark is good for ESB or SE, but for RotJ it needs to be smoked.

    Try www.triktoys.com and mail the guy (ejurin@onebox.com). He may be able to help. I recently ordered my visor material from him (Which you can see in my MLC2 helmet on my thread hereabouts), and it is great. Flexible but not flimsy. Cuts with scissors, but supports the front of the bucket.

    I think the guys name is eric. Top guy. I just measured the dimensions I needed (don't forget to allow for the curvature of the front) and asked him for a sheet (rather than a visor shape). Voilá!

    In asking for the sheet, not the actual visor shape, you get a little left over at the sides that you can use for trooper lenses, or Chest LED openings should you wish!

    Hope this helps.

    Si

    I just picked up one of these. It looks great, I haven't gotten my helmet yet to put it in and check the fit, but he also sells rubies helmets with the visor so maybe he knows what he is doing.
