    Good news is tracking says it's on the truck. Bad news it's still in Michigan. But I'll be pulling all weekend.

    haha, poor phrasing? or was it?

    I also went ahead and ordered more silicone, AND more rubber. I am going to open the run for another 4-5. I have what looks like 13 pulls on the current mold. They usually don't get dry until around 20-25. I don't expect it to go bad, but if it does, I will start the new mold that day, and finish it within two days.

    New mold silicone is on way, so regardless I am doing at least 10-15 of these. Opening up to 3 more since I ordered enough rubber in first round for them all.

    Will post pics this weekend as I pull, and should be shipping by early next week. Thanks again for everyones patience.

    Re: Stormrider / ICONIC HIC Casts (LIMITED)

    Good news for you all, bad news for me. The thumb part of the mold had a tear in it. So I am going to redo the mold tonight. It will need to cure all night, Ill do the shell in the morning. And pull a HIC tomorrow. I could have made pulls, and removed the little bit of extra rubber that was there, but I prefer to have do it right. So for everyone being patient, your going to get the fresh, perfect pulls.

    Ohh, yah, the rubber, and silicone is in, I expect to have 4-5 to ship by Monday-Tuesday.

    Most of the coats of the 45 lbs of silicone is on. I need to do some thickened and then the mother shell in the morning. I wasn't planning on doing this right off the bat. But such is life. Ill post some pics tomorrow.

    Re: Stormrider / ICONIC HIC Casts (LIMITED)

    Question.....how does the material that the HIC is made from, hold up to winter temps when it is in transit during shipping? Has anyone ever reported a tear? The reason I ask, is a year ago I bought an Imperial Guard helmet from someone here, and the top part of the lid had a chunk break out, mind you it was a Don Post made of vinyl or some other material.

    Are the HIC's rolled up during shipping? I'm thinking that because these are rubber they will hold up much better.

    It is folded. twice to ship, and that I know if, there has never been any cracking or dry rotting, even during cold temperatures.

    The rubber I use, is use for making giant rubber pads for placing machinery on. It is pretty expensive per pound. If you want I can throw one of my second hand pulls for one of the blasters in the freezer overnite and then twist and pull on it and tell you how it performs. I used to live in Michigan, and store them in the garage for a week or two before someone bought them, at around 20 degrees, and never had one tear though.

    Re: Stormrider / ICONIC HIC Casts (LIMITED)

    Hes all lathered up and ready to go. Ill make a pull, then send a pic of the entire process. Which was NO fun.

    Lucky I did this. I picked up the old mold and moved it to the back deck. I grabbed a hand full of torso area, and it tore. Spending 700 was worth it.

    Re: Stormrider / ICONIC HIC Casts (LIMITED)

    Alright. Mold look great. Made a pull. I didnt mix the rubber great in one spot. It has what looks like a scratch down one side by the leg. It will fix up fine when being painted. I occasionally get these.

    If someone on the list wants it, ill refund you $30. If not I will put it up as a second when the run is done. (Or I will fill the cavity with foam for you for free).

    If your on the list pm me. if your not and you want a second at a $30 discount, message me.

    I intend to do 2-3 a day. Ordering boxes tomorrow. They need to lay flat a day or two before I ship them. so they should start shipping wednesday and all be out by the weekend.
