    Looks great man! If you are worried about the form of it, don't worry, once you put the visor in, it will all be good. A fair warning. Make sure the mandibles are properly secure while it is sitting around. I just left one of my buckets around like that, and where the inner cheek meets the mid cheek on the bottom, it cracked. Oh and when you put that visor in, make sure the top part of the visor is wide enough, if you know what im saying. the horizontal slit. I've seen some that are too narrow, just make sure its nice and wide when its visor time. Goodluck!

    good start. slap a visor in it and you may want to add the half circle to keep the flare and shape. cant wait to see it finished.
