Well..I started construction on my Jodo Kast helmet this afternoon with my good buddy Blastech. We started at Wal-Mart and got the RTV Silicon that Richie had instructed us to buy for installing the visor with. We also looked at material for the cape, but didn't purchase any.
When we got to Blastech's pad, we began to cut the plastic part of the visor of my 96 DP(a old Jango Bear helmet ) with the dremel tool. Blastech did a very neat job with it and we started the installation of the visor soon after. (Here's where the s&*% hits the fan.) We placed the RTV silicon on the visor and gently layed it in the helmet. After several minutes of us trying to get it situated, the silicon crap smeared all over the front of the visor. We tried to wipe it off but it only made it worse. Wet rags, paper towels, and a scraper didn't get the silicon off. So..1st visor...ruined. We decided to take the old visor out of Blastech's old helmet and try it in (since he's getting a new fiber glass one soon). We also decided to go with hot glue instead of RTV Silicon. After warming up the visor a little to make it soft and able to form, we placed it in the helmet and put the hot glue in. After holding and thinking we had the job accomplished, I realized that the glue wasn't sticking to the helmet at all...so after a few more choice words we took out the visor and began to brainstorm. We needed something to hold the shape of the empty visor without it warping, and we needed it fast. So we went with duct tape. So the helmet is just sitting there with duct tape holding the visor in. Sure it looks bootleg, but hey..it's getting the job done ;P. Any ideas on what to do to make the helmet visor fit?
