    I went out and bought myself a shiny new dremmel ... so let the fun begin

    Re: Look at what came in the mail today :)

    The dremel was as good as an investment as the JD bucket was...
    Enjoy the next few months and try to take your time ...
    (as hard as that gets )...
    Measure twice, cut once!
    But enjoy most of all!



    JD... your buckets awesome!

    Mason.

    I'll tell you what, my JD was the first bucket that I had trimmed and cleaned-up...that thing was awesome! Hands down...GREAT bucket! Nice and thick. Once I trimmed everything I was able to use my Heavy duty laminate file and it was SOLID...perfect line....man I miss that thing...

    Jango Uri, I will post pics once I have a chance.. all I have done so far is cut out the visor and keyholes done some touchups and sanding.

    I am at the point of deciding what or how to do the rf and stalk. I would l ike to make it moveable.. but ..

    Re: Look at what came in the mail today :)

    I see. You should make a moveable rangefinder. It makes a cooler helmet and also more comfortable when you wear it under your arm.

    I know it will be harder, but im sure youll can find some tricks on these forums.

    By the way, Im about buying a JD helmet. Have you got any rubies helmet? Because if you could make a comparasion picture beetween rubies and JD I would be very pleased

    take care

    Uri if you're still looking for a comparison pic between a JD and Rubies, I have some?

    Keep it looking good Kivas. I too am in the middle of making some mods to my JD bucket .
