    Help needed-Quality brand/make/tint for ordering visors

    I have three helmets I will be working on in the near future. I plan on using the brad tee nut method for installation of the visors....BUT, does anyone know offhand a quality visor that could be ordered online, say from amazon or ebay? I don't know the thickness desired, but I definitely don't want one of those paper thin film visors. And smoke grey is the color of choice. What shade do you recommend? better to go with a 4 or go all the way to the 5 shade? Any help with a good brand/model is greatly appreciated.

    T-visor.com or Rembrandt_industries on e-bay (both the same folks) have nice smoke color 3mm thick visors. I used one on my DVH helmet. Shade wise they only have 1, but it seemed to work well with flash photos in hiding my face

    OR... you can go with a welders shield like one of these:

    Industrial Safety Supplies | Security Safety &amp Supply, Inc.

    Item # WEM WM818150, Visor Smoke 8 x 15-1/2 x .060 (IM9P6FS) On Sutton-Garten Co.

    They are thinner , but not flimsy film.

    Yeah what he said, I used a T-visor in that DP I resurrected from the dead. Nice quality, curve was perfect, just needed a little trimming in between lower mandibles

    Extended, just expect to have a small amt to trim. Keep the segment of helmet cutout to overlay, and mark it up with proper amt of overhang. I'd also mask both sides with painters tape while it is being fit/trimmed.
