Hey everyone! I have lurked for awhile and finally got to a point where I could use some input. I started a pep Boba using Fierfeks pep files and I am now sanding the helmet down. Post fiberglass and resin. Pre bondo.
Here are a few pics of my helmet while it was still just cardstock. Sorry for the mass posting.
Here's one before sanding (it has been resined and fiberglassed at this point):
Here are a bunch of pictures of it partially sanded:
With fiberglass inside it is about 1/4 inch thick.
Fierfeks pep may not have been the appropriate one for me to begin with. I got fed up with a lot of the ear pieces and decided to skip the RF assembly. It was spur of the moment and now I don't know how I should go about it. So:
- Stalk ideas?
- Do I leave that quarter inch edge at the bottom of the helmet or do most people chop it?
- You may notices my right cheek area is f'ed up. It is. What can I do about that?
Sanding and Bondo-wise I think I am capable of doing, but won't refuse any pointers.
The helmet got pretty wavy in a couple spots, but I am confident bodyfiller will work. My main concerns are about the ears because I think they look shoddy.
Lucky for me my dad is working on a kit car and I was able to talk to two autobody guys about bondo and such. Got many compliments on my fiberglass job. So, again, confident I can handle the bondo work.
