    My new bucket with Stormrider insides!

    I just wanted to show off my new bucket with working rangefinder and Stormrider's internal foam padding. I had to work some of the padding around the servo for the range finder, but other than that it was an easy installation. This padding is great and really finishes off the helmet. The helmet is mostly done with just some more scratches to be added later in the back and dull it up. I can even fit my head in with everything, but the rear padding over the keyslots!

    The helmet interior is like bottled unfiltered awesomeness. Very cool. But you should use Duracell batteries, because when your hunting down the galaxy's baddest criminals, it just has to work. LOL sorry, I couldn't resist. Love those adds.

    I am not sure. There is a thread in the cargo hold: http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/showthread.php?t=29507 . This should link you to it.

    That is pretty cool, does all that stuff make it hot to wear?

    It is actually not bad. I don't wear anything on my head under it and get quite a bit of air from the bottom of the helmet.

    'Paint the batteries'? Don't worry about it! Only kids and ewoks will be able to see them.

    Re: My new bucket with Stormrider insides!

    Im goign to be working on the new pieces for my kit tomorrow. The primary focus is creatign somethign that goes in the top center, thats better than the gear.

    My plan is to make something sort of maple leaf shape, that fills the center gap with detail.

    Now, that beign said, do you have the MQ for the rear key slots?

    It would be possible for me to make the rear pad piece hollow.

    Also, would it be useful to make a 9 volt battery box/cover out of greebles?

    Looks nice. Ill use this pic as reference to see what I can add to the kit to make it better.

    Also one tip would be if that the rear piece, is shaped like it is so it can be moved way down, and be bent ito cover part of the keyslots, and angle to the base of the helmet. This allows your head to slide way back, and gives a cool look to the helmet.

    Ill find a picture for you when i get home.

    Thanks for the props and glad the pics can be put to use. LMK if you need others. I did not get a MQ, I don't think you were doing them when I got the kit. Making the rear pad hollow to match the MQ (maybe) would probably be a good thing. Even if it could be made a little thinner would help as well.

    As far as the battery covers, I would say that wouldn't be needed because the location of the batteries is probably very different from person to person and designing things that to go anywhere in the helmet could be tricky. On the other hand with what you have done with these to this point you could probably come up with something really sweet!
