    Jun 30, 2007, 11:57 PM - received a Don Post Helmet #1

    Has anyone tried modifying it to receive a full tinted lens ? Any advice on cutting this DP Helmet would be appreciated.

    Thank you,

    Robert

    I think just about everyone here has installed a tvisor on one of those at one time or another. You'll need a dremel, exactonive witha sharp blade and a file with some form of corners. to get in the edges of the visor area

    The Don Post requires a fair amount of work to get it looking right but it can be done, it's a great first lid if you do the modifications but I'd recommend saving up and getting a screen accurate fiberglass lid if you can.

    I have a white inner Don Post '95 that's been reworked very well and looks pretty good but I upgraded as soon as I could.

    This was my suit a while ago with the Don Post helmet:



    And this is my heavily upgraded suit now with my Bobamaker helmet (bad pic, sorry):

    nice suit, and nice helmet. BM pwns.

    the gauntlets look a bit bright in color though, you may wanna get a darker red for those.

    When it comes to putting in your visor I'd do it this way http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/showp...9&postcount=27

    Where vinyl is hard to glue to it's a good alternative and you also don't have to worry about getting glue on the visor and ruining it.

    Ah yes and whatever you do don't use Superglue (Cyanoacrylate) as it'll leave a white mist all over your T-Visor!

    What do you mean? I've trooped with a DP helmet for the last 8 years and never had the original rangefinder break on it.

    jodo,

    The spammer comment was for Beauty123. I reported the post and Mirax deleted it and banned that account. My comment wasn't directed at LoTek. I commented on the spammer then remembered the report feature otherwise wouldn't have even posted.

    Using a dremmel tool to cut put the extra plastic works very well. Using TK409's tutorial worked well for my DP95.

    Look under the "Visor" heading.

    Thank you all for your feedback and info. Being new is the reason I have only a handful of posts. You all started as new members at one time so take it easy and don't get all clique-y towards noobs.

    Thanks,

    Robert
