    My Boba Fett helmet from E-bay*Pic Intensive*

    A wile back I got a Boba Fett helmet from e-bay that was made from Fiberglass.. I was Verry cheep,
    compaired to the kits on E-bay, but needed alot of work.
    See Pics



    As you can see the mandables where sticking way out.. Kinda looked like it was bucktoothed
    also the Visor in the helmet was only a peace of window tint that was taped in..

    I sanded it down and found alot of Cracks going along the ears. The only good thing was it was not in
    the acual fiber glass but in the filler that the maker put on to help make the
    helmet a bit smoother.after some heating up the helmiet I slowley worked the
    mandables back down into place... I used a Real Thick Visor and alot of hot
    glue to help hold the visor in place wile I bondoed the cracks on the outside.
    This filled in the cracks and also helped to hold the mandables in place.



    After that all dried I pulled out the thick visor and bondoed on the inside
    along here my new Visor would go and primered the helmet.



    After a paint job useing the great info here*thanks Spideyfett, MARROW SUN, you all Rock :thumbup *
    and Puting in a Green Visor and a REAL borden Connecter I now have my First Boba Fett Bucket

    I'm sorry someone would even sell that lousy of a helmet, you've done a good job on getting it back in shape though. I take it, it wasnt pictured on Ebay like this?

    I imagine th same thing too, Ive come to know it as the "Rubies Diesease"
    Excuse me for venting my frustration over how they advertised the Jango helm, which kinda really ticked me off when I finally got it in the mail (by which I was waiting for a high quality version of what I saw in the pictures they used:evil :evil :evil :evil :evil :evil :evil :evil ) Thats why I love this site. Cause you can learn how to turn crap into art, like this helmet that you bought. Outstanding work. If I tried doing that, it might end up looking like Sloth from the Goonies......

    I just find the phrase buck-toothed amusing.

    Nice job on the bucket!
