    ugh..holes everywhere I look on the RF ear and box. Was really hard to see with paint, but the primer highlighted every hole...

    You make a Jango earcap FP? Does it allow for a rotating stalk?

    I might be interested in buying one off you for my BM helmet if so. It's a fixed stalk and I really wanted to make a RC rotating one.

    No, it's "fixed" like the original hero. There's been debate if there was one that actually moved, or if it was CG. I think it was CG personally

    Yeah. I fully agree that it was CG. I just like the idea of making a pivoting one anyway.

    I have actualy though about modding one of Bobamaker's ears to make it move. I honestly don't think it would be that hard to do.

    I have the BM ear and keep looking at it, thinking about that very thing but haven't done it for fear I'd ruin it in some way and be up a creek without a paddle, or a rangefinder.

    I'm still a bit new to all this and the potential for disaster could be high. ;-)

    Well, my idea would to just trace out a quarter of a circle around the bottom of where the RF stalk sits, close to the rear and take a dremel sanding drum (small one) and grind out the quarter circle within the lines of what you drew. I think that would work once you put a bolt through the stalk

    Well on a side note, I was planning on trying out the bolt method visor installation for this helmet...however I first tried this with my own personal BM visor as to not potentially ruin it for this one or the other. Needless to say, I ruined my visor

    I think I may be going about the wrong way..maybe instead of drilling holes, make short, horizontal notches along the edges of the visor.

    First time for everything, but cost me some $$

    Alright, well I got the new ear in, thank you FettPride!!!

    It's a very nice and incredibly clean cast, just need to mod it for the bolts and paint, and it's ready for the stalk/RF to be attached. I'm going to start painting this week for sure. I've just gotten really picky with gettting the rim of the inner mandibles as even as possible.

    I've got a total of 3 jango helmets I'm currently working on, one of them being my own, and need to finish all of these by mid-june!!

    Alright, all bondo work is finnished..for good! I will start painting tonight.

    I am going to need to get a new visor though...I just tried forming the one I recieved, and the way it was cut makes it too small and does not cover all areas inside as its supposed to

    This is frustrating...the krylon keeps producing this crinkled/bubble in the paint and no matter how careful I am, it happens. I am trying to get my BKBT ready for the last SWW but I cant get this paint to work!

    Thats bad luck there Tube, I feel for you...
    Post a pic of the offending paintwork, maybe someone will recognize it and have a tip on how to avoid it.
    Could it be due to the cold cast & cold weather?
    How long have you had the paint, is it old stock?
    Thats all I got, good luck!
