    Nov 29, 2006, 12:42 PM - hard hat support in a buckett? #1

    Has anyone ever put a hard hat support system in thier jango or boba helmets??? I would love to see pics of this and maybe some instructions. I dont think epoxy would be enough to hold it in place.
    What do you guys think?

    I just scratched up the inside of my bucket where the 4 contact points are and hot glued it in place......works pretty well, I think I might have re-gled it once or twice.

    My fiberglass helmet used a hard-hat liner...I used JB Weld to install it.

    On my older SgtFang mystery helmet, the resin was so light I used Industrial Velcro instead. Never had any problems either way.

    I used industrial strength velcro with a hardhat liner in my fiberglass helmet.
    Works great! I've had it in there for a year and a half, and it hasn't moved at all.

    inside of my bucket. the atachment points are held in place with epoxy resin (just make sure that both surfaces are keyed).
