    If you are going for accuracy and making an ESB helmet, get a green visor (the 1/8" thick ones if you can find any). If you are making a RotJ or Jango helmet, go with the smoked visors. I have had both and think the green gives just a tad bit better visibility, but I guess that depends on just how dark the visors are.

    Another question ...

    Well, I bought a transparent plastic plate in order to replace the faked visor of my DP 97. I want to use a heat gun to shape the visor.
    The color of the plate is a dark brown, though not dark enough and my face is still visible behind it.
    Is there are a possibility to tint or to paint the inside of the visor to make it darker! Using automotive tint is not possible, because the tint is only for flat surfaces and the visor is very curved!

    Here is my MSH2 visor mount, I used modified picture hangers to hold the visor in place, aluminium post screws epoxied to the helmet to hold the 8-32 knurled nuts that heep things tight.
    It works like a charm and I can remove the visor in seconds.

    I am new to this and am starting with a rubies Jango Fett helmet. The visor in it sucks and I want to cut it out and replace it. I have seen people mention getting a welders shield and cut it to fit. I am afraid I will cut it to the wrong size since I do not have a template. What would be the best way to replace this visor? Should it be flush with the inside of the helmet of fit exactly in the space that is cut?
    Thanks for your help!

    Faceshield only Dark Green HF4178-DRK....&#36;4.25

    I just got one of these today and think it'll work fine! It's big enough, dark enough, and has a good flex to it.

    Good luck!

    This visor sucks. It is too green. It would look like crap on the Jango helmet. Now I have to send it back and find another one. This thing is Bright Green. Though it would look more like the photos you guys posted where it looks black.

    *EDIT: Disregard; Ebay... why didn't I think of that sooner?

    Go on ebay and look for rembrandt-enterprises, or type 'fett t-visor' in the search bar. This guy sells them with a buy-now price of like &#36;10. I bought one, and while I don't think its going to fit my particular helmet, it's still a darn good one.

    I use the dark green visor here:
    http://www.rjsafety.com/EH21.html
    scroll down for "HF4118-DRK Dark Green Faceshield &#36;3.65"
    It's flexible and soft enough to cut with scissors, yet thick enough, so no need to heat it in the oven. To attach it to the helmet, I just used two-part epoxy putty. It hardens to a metal and sticks to anything. Score the helmet surface with an exacto blade a couple times, then apply putty. Hold the visor in place until the putty hardens to a metal - about 3-5 minutes.

    Chris , as always you are the man. I shall have to try this.
    The problem that I have now is the helmet is no longer
    shaped like it's supposed to be.
    The mandibles keep pulling away from the visor;
