    Did you and some bracing to the underside where the splits are?It is hard to type but when you brought the two sides together did you place a sheet of "something" to the underside to support the weight if the material added.
    Oh if you feel this is a hopless cause to try to repair and need help I would be happy to discuss this repair with you via personal message.Not to mention if you want to get rid of it.
    I used the fiberglass material, and will probably fiberglass the whole inside once I get it reshaped. Thanks man, I hope to see this baby through to the end.

    look at the bright side. You can now try Ideas on it that you probably wouldn't try on a decent bucket. I am doing the same thing at my new job! I work at a new Honda plant in my town and we are just starting up. All the cars we are building now are UNSELLABLE UNITS. They are going to get crashed up, and will never see the light of day. But we get to try new techniques and different products on them we wouldn't dare try on a car we were building for sale. So take this opportunity and use it to the fullest!
    Thanks for the advice you are so right, my friend.

    Holly ****! sorry about ur luck.. at least you didnt paint it then have it tear..
    You may want to look into getting some decent this time and stop wasting your time with that thing. It reminds me of a beater car.... great side project. but not something you wanna test drive and learn on.

    Goodluck bro.

    Thanks gbeef.
    Yeah, I would love to get a nice SGT Fang, or other, but can't really afford it at this time, very small budget for my costuming right now. I figure if I can save this thing, I can probably do anything.

    Thanks again!

    Re: Bucket Nightmare!!!

    Yeouch! I've got an old DP (or is it Rubies) that I was gonna practice on before I got a Bobamaker bucket, but I was worried about re-shaping it.



    Just one possibility, I'm thinking that maybe it might have cracked because the visor was cut out from it first. It may have had better strength to survive re-shaping if it was left in until it was done.

    Just my guess though - I'm a complete noob who hasn't even painted anything in ten years! :o

    Thought that helmet was a gonner, but the repair job looks great! Just a lick of paint and it could end up a great bucket!

    Maybe if you use a heat gun you can reshape the front...? Just be gentle.

    Ultimately, the visor will probably be what holds it open and you might wait until you are ready to install that.

    Hey man, from having a gigantor crack in the helmet to fixing the helmet is incredible.

    Great progress man, I know you can do a great job on fully repairing this.

    Looks like your helmet is coming along great. Did the ears get damaged?

    Well there's your probolem. Theres a scratch on the RF ear cover. I hadn't seen this thread before, hopefully it all works out. I know I'd never be able to fix that.

    I've always thought you can fix anything, till i opened up a guitar hero controller and lost half the pieces.

    This however is fixable, keep at it, looks great.
