    Jul 11, 2003, 12:11 AM - Merged: Merged: Pinstripe width on Jango helmet? #127

    I know nothing about pinstriping, but it doesn't sound that hard to do.

    But I am guessing that they sell it in different widths, no? Various increments in millimeters?

    If so, has anyone bothered to measure or guesstimate the width of the pinstripes on Jango's helmet? I can eyeball it, I suppose, but if anyone has actually tried to measure htem at AOSW or something, I'd be interested in hearing the results.

    Thanks,

    Squirk

    I bought the 2 stripe pinstripe at Wal Mart and used the bigger stripe. Just trimmed it with an exacto knife.

    I used 1/8th inch pinstripe when I re-did mine after rub-n-buffing it.

    I made mine just under 1/8". 1/8" seemed just slightly too thick.
    It was like 3/32".

    Of course,I work at a sign shop and have the capability to
    cut my own pinstripes at whatever thickness I want.

    Jul 12, 2003, 11:39 PM - Merged: Cutting out the keyholes #131

    I recently purchased a titanium drill bit and hobby files for cutting out the keyholes on the back of my Jango helmet.

    It's always been my understanding that Boba's cutouts were covered with a circuitboard painted orange, and that Jango's were covered with speaker grille. But I've also heard some folk claim that nothing covered the keyholes (i.e., that the neck seal made the interior so dark that it just looked like there was something black covering the holes).

    Which is true? If there really is speaker grille in there, do you just walk into an audio store and ask for it? Or do you find an old/broken speaker and just rip it off?

    Frankly I don't think it matters. Just cut them out, put an ordinary screen there, and you'll be fine.

    The pics from CII show a screen inside. I was thinking of getting some window screen and use that.

    I am also doing the screen thing and I cut out the vertical ear piece opposite the range finder side for ventilation.

    I used screen on mine also. I cut 2 sections the same size and rotated them to make it hard for you to see in.

    Jul 22, 2003, 9:08 PM - Merged: neckseal attachment #136

    I made a neckseal for my helmet from vinyl and i was wondering if anyone else used vinyl for theirs and how you attached it. I tried hot glue, but the neckseal peeled straight off the glue. So how have you all attached it?

    Thanks

    My neckseal used velcro. So, one part was sewn on to the neckseal and the other was just peal and stick on the helmet. I made sure that I cleaned the helment 1st.

    I used a little epoxy on each end of the velcro to keep it from peeling off.

    Sep 10, 2003, 9:12 PM - Merged: Rangefinder LED's for Jango ? #139

    I haven't really noticed any good close-ups of Jango's rangefinder. Does he have LED's like Boba? I'm working on my bucket right now, it's a Rubies Deluxe, I decided to trick it out a bit and was considering putting in LED's if Jango had some in his rangefinder.

    Well, I was all prepared to post "no he doesn't" then decided to take a quick peek through my reference pics. Sure enough, they are there.

    WHOOOOAAA!!! That's one huge pic!

    Yeah, there were a couple pics on Jango Bear's reference site that seemed to indicate Jango's RF had LEDs. But, Mirax's pics are much more conclusive!

    To me it doesn't look like the rangefinder has real working leds. What it looks like to me is they cast the rangefinder off of one with leds. This just leaves the little bumps on the top. You could put real working leds in but I don't think the real thing did.
    Oh and the rubies rangefinder has those little bumps. Glad i didn't modify it yet.
    my 2 cents worth

    I agree, it doesn't look like they are necessarily meant to work. I'd like to put in some blue ones in though, that might be cool.

    just to have a third opinion - I don't think they were working lights - but the idea of blue lights is cool while being accurate.

    Well, I'm glad I thought to ask. I think I'm going to add blue LED's to my helmet, along with the fans and voice system. I'll be sure to post some pics as soon as they are ready. Thanks everyone
