How did you do the removeable visor?
How did you do the removeable visor?
I used a Tee Nut: BE SURE TO FLATTEN the TEE NUT.... You can find it at Home Depot...Size is 6-32X 1/4"...and be sure to get the corresponding screws..thery're made by Crown Bolt.asok said:
This type of "tee nut" allowed me to NOT DRILL through the helmet...
I bonded the tee nut to the helmet with 3M Scotch Brand Welding two part mix. It's better than JB Weld.
Used a drill bit to recess the tee nut...Pics..
NOTE: Be sure to Flatten the tee nut...

That drill bit looks familiar... LOL
Great job so far. Its been exciting seeing first hand and first person all the incredible prep work your doing for this bucket. Its gonna be something special when its done.
FP gave you a kick butt canvas to start from. Cant wait to see it done!
Lol, I'd be too afraid to try and RECESS my helm to give room for the tnut for my visor lol! Where's the duct tape!
Wow. That's great work. :thumbup
I love what you doing! That is a lot of detail work you are doing.
The finished product should be awesome!
Looking forward to seeing all the progress pics!
I was hoping this would be finished already with a whole host of painted up bucket pic's???
I bought a whole new box of tissues today especially...
In the cuboard they go then...

This is gonna be one cool thread! I like everything so far. The way you have attached the visor is very clever. I must try that myself. If there is one thing that could be fixed it would be the dent. i would smooth it out little in the center. Besides from that, great job! cant wait to see it with some paint on
Thanks Micke...I think now that I compare it to the Ref Pics..I will....good call.:thumbupmicke said:
I still have a little more tweaks here and there, like Installing a removable head-liner....then, let the painting begin!!!
Thanks for sharing Spidey.
Always a big fan of your work. :thumbup :thumbup :thumbup

dont rush it... (stops to think...) no... rush it... infact I challenge you to finish all the painting in one day. Dont even let the coats dry inbetween.
It will look great... cant wait!
hey now! there's something to be said for that!
Even though it takes time to paint i always find the prepwork to take the most time.
Any new updates spidey?
The prep work looks fantastic Spidey!! I always wished I put the left cheek scratches in mine....I may have to go back in and add them.
I can't remember the last person to do a full AoSW helmet including the blue marker....should be a nice touch .......motorfish over at RPF rings a bell, but I can't be sure.
Look forward to the paint progress.
My old ESB had the bluemarker lines. I got a kick out of doing them
I never get over hear much, but I need to start cuz there's so much to learn. I really like what you did to attach the visor. I've always been unsure when I drilled holes in the two helmets I've done, plus the backfilling takes a lot of work. I'm definitely going to use your procedure for my next helmet.
Thanks bro for sharing,
Thanks Cruzer...:thumbup ...and everyone for your comments.Cruzer said:
Sorry I haven't been posting on this.....I still have not found a good Method to install a removable headliner...??? ....
I have to say, that visor installation method is ingenious. Alex, good call on that one. I look forward to this thread !!
I have a great idea for that... but I would have to show you what I was thinking.... and see if it would work. It involves a magnet keylock system.
thanks Jose..:thumbupGot Maul said:
