    Insane attention to detail. I love the blast streaks coming from the dent, and the hundreds of surface scratches. Well done!

    Mate this is an insane amount of detail... I'm happy to have seen pics on this... I can't wait for mine to arrive so I too can venture into the ESB look.
    And I could not think of a better way to spend my 400th Post!! :thumbup

    The foam liner comes from packaging for sram xo shifters and derailleurs. Approx. 10mm thick, i laminated it with carpet tile adhesive spray to the right thickness, just added the extra squares for additional padding. The peices are then held into the helmet with self adhesive velcro strips.

    Way to go TF. That is seriously one sweet bucket. The attention to detail from the foam to the wiring to the visor is first rate. Makes me want to get back on mine!

    It seems like the only place to find foam pieces like that is in packaging for hardware...you can't really buy it separate.

    One place i saw similar foam for sale was for underlay for Hornby model train tracks, just came in a roll, this could be laminated to the desired thickness...

    Hey Chad,
    I got some similar foam for my gauntlets at Ace Hardware. It's weatherstripping foam. Like TF said, if you use some of the 3M spray adhesive, you can layer it or just lay strips next to each other till you get the shape or thickness you want.
    Worth taking a look.

    Another thing I did recently for an X-Wing pilot helmet was to buy a cheap batting helmet and cut the foam pads out. I used the same spray adhesive to put into my helmet.

    Go to a bike shop and ask for some packaging for components, a good bike shop normally builds the bikes there so they should have plenty of boxes with the foam left over.
