    I believe you could just use some sort of small aluminum tube and just leave it in...I think someone else on the boards was doing the same thing.

    Do you by chance have a pic of the bmx helmet before you turned it into an amazing piece of art?

    unfortunately i dont. i can tell you it was made by Bell, and it had a ridge around the back which i had to sand flat. also had loads of vents which had to be filled. when i measured the circumference it was approx. 15mm more than the msh dimension, so i thought it would be a good match...

    So many people with so much talent...God I'm unlucky...

    Great bucket by the way. Amazing work on a scratch built bucket. Make sure you get the best paint job you can (hate to see it wasted...).

    I would be interested in a range finder as well. Please put me on your list when you start pulling them.

    Is this style close?
    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...7634?n=3375251
    Doesn't really have a ridge though.

    http://ec1.images-amazon.com/images/...CLZZZZZZZ_.jpg
    Or closer to this style?
    -Great Helmet btw!
  20. Apr 8, 2006, 2:57 PM - Re: bmx potty + filler = helmet? #70

    that first one looks close, you only need a basic form to start with, by adding thin layers of filler you can tweak the overall shape until its just right...i would use those mystery helmet measurements as a guide, cheers...
  21. Apr 8, 2006, 4:17 PM - Re: bmx potty + filler = helmet? #71

    Oh, I'm not planning on doing a Boba helmet at the moment, lol, I still have other projects to finish up like my wolverine claws. I was just bored and did a quick search in case any one wanted try one of there own. Once again that helmet is sweet!
  22. Apr 30, 2006, 2:52 PM - Re: bmx potty + filler = helmet? #72

    Just a quick update on my scratchbuild. I've just cast the clear resin piece and installed a basic led kit i modified to include a blue/white screen light. The kit included two adjustment screws for led speed and alternation and by a total fluke just snapped into place! I couldn't find a mercury switch so have installed a basic bearing tilt switch, seems to work just fine. I'm still tweaking details on the helmet and hopefully casting soon......

    Holy crap! That's awesome! This makes me want to give up on attempting a scratchbuilt! But I know I'll be trying anyways...

    Amazing work! For us non-tech guys, what's a bearing tilt switch? I have a mercury switch in mine but its VERY sensitive.
