    Apr 1, 2015, 4:58 AM - My rubies modification #1

    Hi all,
    I'm a newbie at this stuff, but I thought I'd share the work I've done so far on my Rubies "supreme" helmet. I've got to do some work on the rangefinder to get it to fit right, because I did like the flashing original one, so i need to get it a good fit on the new stalk...other than that it's pretty much done & I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out.....I think when you see the "before" photo, you'll agree it looks better now LOL....I can't believe they let them out of the factory looking like that.
    Any comments or suggestions welcome.
    Cheers all.

    Solid job there. Previous paint job is awful. Pardon my ignorance but we're these actually licensed by Lucasfilm??!

    the one in the pic is actually the same one but tinted on the inside with window tint, but i wouldn't recomment it as it is too difficult to see though and messy...in the end i cut this one out and replaced it with a t visor from bobamaker, i think it cost about 15-20 in the end .
    hope thast helps

    T-Visor.com. I contacted them and the Slim Deluxe will be the best fit for the Target helmet. I am still waiting it to ship to confirm for myself.

    Do they ship worldwide? Might have to grab one! How'd you take the visor off and fit in in man?

    Also is it the kind of visor where no one can see your face but you can see out of it fine?

    with mine I filed down all the old edges and held the new one in with 2 chicago screws ( I could only fit 2 without taking it apart.....on my current one I am taking it apart to use more screws) and I also used hot glue to secure it all together.

    its a screw that has a base that attaches (with glue) to a surface (the inside of the helmet) and you screw through the visor to attach to it
