    Silly Question - Jango Visor

    Hey folks,

    I have hunted and searched and maybe overlooked this, but is Jangos Visor black or dark green?

    I apologize if I missed this somewhere.

    Thanks ahead of time.

    I think most people go with dark green as its easy to find dark green welding visors. The darkgreen is also a bit easier to see through in my experience(which is limited). As far as accuracy goes I am non too sure but dark green often looks like black when there is a head shoved in the bucket

    It is dark blue or black. I think I may have found something that will work. It is on order and I will post info once it gets in.

    Seeing that I am also working on, what I hope to be my last Jango helmet, I need to find this stuff also. Then once I find it, letting all my friends know.

    There is a welding supply place in town that has the normal green stuff. That will work great for my Boba. They looked and ordered me a shield that is "Smoked Gray" Not sure what that means, so I ordered one. It should be here in about a week.

    Just got a call and the face shield is in and they say it is dark and not green! So, I just wanted to tease you a bit. I am hoping to have some sort of pics up later tonight.

    As WhiteArmor can tell you, I think it is a little to light. I will post pic on Friday, that way I can get it in the daylight.

    Nope but, I do have an idea. When I ordered the shield, I also got one that was clear. I am going to buy some black dye and try and dye the clear one. That is how I did my gauntlet hoes and that worked out well.

    Yes, the sheild ended up being too light sadly. I remember seeing in an old car magazine this spray on tint stuff. It is supposed to be used for tinting tail lights on cars. So I am going to look around and see if this product is still avalible and see about getting a can to try out.

    I looked into this also. I found a link that sells it pretty cheap. There are also some on the 'bay if you search under spray tint that show pics of what it looks like on some cars. I was going to see if I could find some around town so I didnt have to order it to let you guys know how it works... here is the link to the one I found on the net..

    Re: Silly Question - Jango Visor

    Still working on finding some spray timt around here w/o ordering but I did stumble on an alternative Im going to try.

    My fiance' works for a large eye care center. Well she just happen to mention while I was looking in a store for spray tint that they have a large tint machine that tints glass and plastic. She said it is large enough to do a T-visor so Im gonna have her ask what it cost, if any, and have here work one up on a clear visor. Keep your fingers crossed cause this may work out great!

    I just dropped a clear visor in a bucket of black tint. The same idea that Camblin has.

    The spray on tint looks good but you need the patience to apply several light coats and leaving half a day in between for it to dry... the only danger is that if you do one too many coats, it becomes somewhat opaque - I wasted a visor by rushing

    Over night. I pulled it out after a few hours and it had started tinting. Now I am just playing the game.
