    Dec 14, 2012, 2:14 AM - Helmet circuit board #1

    I picked up a bucket from another TDH member and I need to install the board that goes behind the key slots in the back, the MQ-1 I think. Any ideas on how to put it in an already painted bucket? What color should it be(its an ESB bucket). Who sells them?

    I've got some pressure casted ones ready to ship, black or white. I also added mounting tabs in the corners on mine for easier installation. Not sure on what color they're supposed to be...
    Here's a few pics:








    PM me for details if you're interested

    Those MQ-1 circuit boards look great, Will! I like the black one because it shows all those tiny details.

    The circuit board has the same color as the rear keyhole:

    This image might help you to position the circuit board behind the rear keyhole. You will need only the upper part of the board, because the lower part (attached to the keypad) was used on the left gauntlet, and the lower section of the rear keyhole was covered with a leftover piece (curved) from the T-visor (?):

    That is the most used color for the red parts, but you might need to do some color testing and paint matching. That area is less visible, so a close color might do the trick.

    Thanks Rafal! I agree, I love the black way better as you can see all the details much clearer

    For got to post that I got the board. I am going to try to get it painted and installed this weekend. Raf, I can just use a left over piece of a visor for the bottom half? If so that will work nicely. If I get it done I will post some pics, hopefully I don't mess it up.
