    Dented Variant - Custom Earcap SHORT Run

    The following pics are trimmed the way you will receive them, (I will use my workshop to trim flashing and sharpen appropriate coners). You may final sand if you feel it necessary. They have received a coat of gray primer, and a mist of white glossy just to bring out the greeble effect better.
    Ok, after fielding many many PM's ive come up with a way to break this down so that its cohesive enough for everyone, and fits into _most_ of the pm's ive received so far.
    There are three kits:

    Kit A: $20 - Standard Left and Right configuration, with a 1 or 2 piece upper left. A keyslot sized greeble to use in the rear, or to cut up to further customize your helmet.

    Kit B: $30 - Everything in kit A + The three piece Left (So you get two sets fo the left) + 2 more full length greebles for further customization and tooling (Ill givfe you examples shortly of how you can further customize the parts)

    Kit C: $40 - Everything pictured. The inclusion of pre-customized ear pieces and a 'short' left earcap that will go with the 'short wave radio antenna upper(Not shown). Round with a short wave antenna that you can put greebles on.

    US - $5 US shipping. Outside US - PM and ill check it. Shouldnt be more than $10 US

    The pictures below have the parts broken down, and how they look at current fastened to my helmet.

    This is a short run. I have enough for 5-10 kits until I get more resin. I have at least 3-4 kits PRE SOLD. This leaves room for roughly 4-7 kits.
    PM With questions. Ill take PP and youll get photos of your pulls before I send them.

    Thanks
    Mason

    Very cool! I hope many custom mandos take advantage of this. They all look great, I'm sure you put a ton of hard work in to every single one of those.

    Re: Dented Variant - Custom Earcap SHORT Run

    I have some black resin, and I can do more on a piece by piece basis. Roughly $20 per standard set (10 per side, 5 per piece).

    Ill also be selling the short wave pieces for $5 each if anyone wants it. It will fit on ANY helmet earpiece and fit nicely. Its a nicely scaled 2ghz antenna, with a ergonimic base that fits on the lip of the upper piece nicely. Probably still $5 shipping


    The helmet show above is also finished with a visor and on ebay, if anyone here wants it for 140 pm me.

    I also have the pieces in black or white resin. If your going to rub and buff it, black makes it look REALLY nice.

    Re: Dented Variant - Custom Earcap SHORT Run

    All orders are sitting here with labels and ready to go out, but im looking for somethign to package them in. The full sets (C) are MUCH larger than I figured. They wont fit in a bubble envelope, nor do I trust them in one.

    Im going to look for packaging today and hopefully get this stuff mailed out to you guys asap. At the worst, this will be a saturday project to get packaged up.

    I apologize for the inconvenience. I just GROSSLY understimated the shipping and size on these

    Re: Dented Variant - Custom Earcap SHORT Run

    All orders are shipped. I have two more standing by. Once they are done, the runs will be done. If you PM me i can make sets, but they are going to be slightly more once the runs are over. But not drastically.

    Thanks for all the interest.
