    Sep 29, 2007, 6:01 AM - bondo fiberglass kit vs. rubies 97??? #1

    i'm doing up my rubies 97 boba helmet for a friends kid for haloween, and i'm getting tired of it never holding a shape for more than a few minutes after i take it out of the fridge. and since i'm planning on glassing my fang's soon, i may have enough fg mat left over to coat the rubies. my question is, has anyone ever glassed a rubies 97? how did it turn out? i'm worried that the resin may eat the vinyl.

    anyone with experience with this is more than welcome to chime in with advice.

    I am in the middle of fixing up a rubies 97 and so far I can tell you that you can fiberglass it,but do note that it adheres spuraticly to the Vinyl,latex,or whatever the helmet is molded from but it shouldn't be a problem,there are enough crevices for it to hang onto.so far I have only put on to thin layers and plan on putting on a few more but so far its definitely made a huge difference.just remember im just makeing a display piece,if you are planing on whearing it I wouldnt glass it to much because you will get a tighter fit than you already have.
