    Man, that looks amazing. If you do figure out chroming but still making it see through, I will absolutely buy one from you.

    For a chrome visor, you could get some chrome window tint, 1-way mirror tint, or a chromed motorcycle visor (I know Icon has some, but maybe not the right shape) and heat/bend it to fit...

    Looks amazing! Here's what I found with a quick search on ebay (not my auction): 30" x 20' Silver Chrome Window Tint Film HP 2ply 35 | eBay
    I'm sure there are other solutions out there, but this doesn't seem to expensive and would be very easy & effective.

    When you get the mirrored visor figured out, please let us know. I made Cobra Vipers last summer, and just used the face shield from Harbor Freight with mirrored privacy tint from Home Depot. Not a dome, just a smooth curve and the helmet is almost like a Fett with bigger T-shape, so it held it curved like that. A friend wants to replace his hooded Cobra Commander with a helmet, and I said I'd build it, but that one (the cartoon version) definitely needs to be domed. I'm wondering if a little heat and vacuum could stretch the mirror tint over a vac-formed clear visor.
