    Sep 17, 2006, 5:16 PM - T-visor question #1

    i just bought a don post 96 (i know, it sucks) and i was wonderin what to do with the visor...of course i immidiately got rid of the first one and ive traced out the size the visor should be, but i was wondering...should i cut the plastic all around it and just get a much bigger piece and perhaps glue or tape it to the inside of the helmet, or leave it and glue or tape it to the outside area? please help T _ T

    I would suggest keeping the visor on the inside of the helmet, and using glue. The goal (at least for me) is no cracks or deformations to be visible on the visor.

    T _ T is an anime-ish face thingy lol like these: o . o o _ o x _ x xD T _ T @ . @ they are all just faces lol sorry for the confusion

    also, how would i go about in cutting it? i dont want to dammage it anymore then it is, seeing as how it already has 3 tears and i had to stick it in the oven and shape it back because it was so bent i couldnt put it on...its pretty good now though

    Thanks for the clarification on the smilies!

    Anyway, I would use a ruler and an exacto knife, but you have to be careful and go slow while cutting it. After you have cut it, it may be a good idea to sand away any sharp edges that may remain.
