    If you would have the measurements, you might have a paid no 16
    I just need the total length and the width of both ears in a tolorance of 1mm, thats it.

    Spidey,

    You have pics of the inside of the bucket with ears on so we can see the screws? Are they flat heads?

    Just curious what type of screw heads they are and how much (if any) sanding would be required inside the helmet for a semi flush mount. Some of these fg buckets have waves inside that need to be leveled out.

    Well depending on what helmet you have im sure would make the difference.... but on the FPH there really isn't much prep or "Wave" of the fiberglass to worry about....it's very clean.

    but as far as the screws.. the prototype ears came back with non flat ones...but we made some changes and I know those changes will change the type of screw that will be used....
    Either way each kit will come with an appropriate set of hardware....of coarse staying as accurate as be can be.

    The top of the three screws got moved due to it interfering with the curve on the inside of the helmet where the upper right earcap is. In the pics I took of the ears on my helmet I only used the two bottom screw holes. They do indeed screw from the inside of the helmet eliminating the need for a nut. The top screw hole on that ear will be moved into the center area to eliminate this issue, although I found the two screws held it on just fine!

    In the pics above of the bottom portion of the upper right ear you will see light green with in the holes where the screws go. The light green is actually paint on the bottom of the screws. I found no issue attaching them to my helmet, it will be even easier for you guys because the machinist is making a template to use for placement.

    UPDATE:

    Just spoke with the machinest.....There is good news and bad news..

    Good News: For anyone that may want a set AFTER this Run is complete, we can continue to do "small" runs....5 or more at a time.

    Bad News: Any late orders after the October 16th deadline,

    Without going into specifics, the reason for the price hike after the deadline was because our goal was to make them avaliable to everyone at a reasonable cost...So our Machinest was very kind in cutting us a deal for this first run only....of coarse he is getting some fett goodies from us as well to help even that out...

    So if you plan to get these please let us know ASAP...
    Again the order will be placed on Oct. 16th, with no exceptions after that.

    Thanks all..

    Alex
