    Jun 6, 2005, 6:46 PM - Flare,....Too much, Just right ? #1

    Hey all,

    This is my first try at painting and installing a visor. This is a "DP 95" that I have had for a while and decided to make the whole costume. I was wondering what you other hunters thought about the flare on it.

    Thanks,

    I think it looks great. Just the right amount of flare in my opinion.

    how much the ears, or outsides of the helmet go out horizontally. Little flare = a rectangular shape helmet. More and more flare makes the helmet look more triangularish.

    Flair is too old. Oh sorry, I was thinking Ric Flair. My bad. All ha ha aside, I love the way your 95 looks. I am hoping mine will turn out somewhat close to yours.

    The flare looks fantastic! Your paint job is awesome as well. I would love to see what you did on the back side of the helmet as well.

    By '95 Don Post, do you mean the standard helmet, like the cheap one? If so, how exactly does one go about adding to the flare on that piece, which is inherently small looking due to it's rectangular-ish sides..?

    And that helmet looks splendid, as well!

    Yes, it was $60.00. While you are installing the visor, push up on the front two mandables (the bottom) and in. This will make the opening a bit narrower but,.... it looks better if you ask me.

    Awesome, thanks!

    Now I KNOW I'll only need to spend $60 or so!
