I'm fixing up my '95 DP right now and I'm planning to do a few things:
1st, the helmet was in storage for a while to the back is a tiny bit smooshed, and the default visor seems a little curved (is it always a little curved?), which doesn't matter that much since I'll be replacing it with another one..maybe that Huntsman one??! How should I unwarp it, since I have no heatgun? Also, Could anyone please tell me what the distance between the mandibles should be?
Also, I saw Webchief's bucket, and I really like his colour scheme and his LED's! Since I can't get in tough with him, does anyone know what paints he used? I also don't know if I should clear coat it?
Here is WebChief's nice work:
And does anyone know how to run a cable (for the LED's) down the shaft of the rangefinder? And did anyone add some LED's into the rangefinder (in the screen) like Webchief? He added some green ones I think.
Also, I'm looking for ideas on lining the helmet with a hardhat liner. So anyone who's done that, please lemme know what you did, and how!!
Could anyone who put a voice amp in their bucket please let me know what and how they did it as well?
Well, I guess that's all for now!
Sorry for all the questions...but I wanna make the bucket as good as possible!
Oh yeah, I'm also making my own servo rangefinder control. Does anyone know where I could get a little motor that will do what I want? (not hyperdyne, because I'm making my own circuitry...and they cost alot there anyways!)
Here you can see some of the "bending" in the visor and how the helmet is a little warped in the back:
