    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.

    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!

    Hey Spideyfett!

    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!

    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

    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.

    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.

    Wow Spidey!!

    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,

    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.
