    Don't they limit membership? I know I only got in because there was a window that they had for signing up... I don't know if they do that still or not...

    Yes, they limit membership. That's why SgtFang became a member here as well.

    I'm new to DH but did receive a Sarge helmet and I have to say, it's awesome. Sanding time was VERY minor. Now to start the hard part, painting, electronics, etc....

    I second this. I think you've done an astounding job prepping it, I think it would be a shame to not show the paint up progress.

    I've started working on my SgtFang mystery helmet I received last week.

    Here are the tools I'm using right now:


    At this point, I've used a Dremel to trim the bottom edge of the helmet, and cut out the visor.


    Then I used a sanding wheel and sandpaper to even out the width the entire visor opening, to achieve a uniform thickness. I will do the same thing for the bottom of the helmet edge later:


    For the corners, I used an X-Axcto to carefully carve the corners, and finished it with a Emery board and a tiny triangle file:


    Comments are welcome!

    Next step: the keyholes...

    Hey BatNinja, I know this is an old thread so sorry for the resurrection but I'm just starting my build of the exact same helmet. I have my T section cut out and was curious as to what thickness you filed the visor opening width down to before mounting the lens? If you remember that is... :-)
