Probably mean the ears?
But knowing you... ALL painted!
Ha. My bad, I should have gotten you to paint mine! VERY VERY nice! I absolutely ADORE it! <3
I thought of something that would make your t-visor really stand out. Remember I said something about a pink t-visor? Well how about Pink window film for your BM Visor
here is the website and a pic! http://www.gilafilms.com/Automotive/...mChoice=XCPink
Looking good lady!
Nice bucket and great job with the painting :thumbup
I got my awesome chest armor today! Thank you Rotton!!!
I'm pretty small so I'll have to trim it down, but here it is <3
QUESTION... Can anyone tell me how you install the BobaMaker visor, I am having trouble keeping the bolts down. I'm using super glue and they are just popping off.

Use an industrial epoxy. It WILL hold it down and not pop off. I had the same trouble with my visor and the bolts popping off but I fixed it by applying industrial epoxy.
I put it on with some Devcon Plastic welder so hopefully that holds. thanks!
i screw mine directly into the helmet. they will NEVER come off.
JB weld or JB Quik works wonders too, its a two part glue and it holds really really well. So if that doesnt work, just use the stuff i mentioned. Take care and good luck.
Great progress so far!!!
i have been struggling with this visor for hours and cant seem to get it to fit in right. anyone have any pics of how they installed their BM visor?
it looks great , are going to paint the ears? and have you seen those new miror vizors.
go to ace hardware and find one of the old guys that have been working there since the dawn of time and ask for chicago screws (they're two part screws, one part screw the other a shank the screw threads into). then stop off in plumbing and get some plumbers putty (i find mine at walmart). when you get home figure out where all the anchor points are going through the visor, i.e. drill some holes through the visor (make them a kinda long, so you have a little room for adjusting. then mark the spot on the inside of the helmet, put a small ball of the putty on each of the spots then set the shank into the putty.
disclaimer: i used just the putty to hold the visor into my sgt fang helmet, but i plan on using this described technique when i get around to doing my ms3. i have no idea how well it will work with the dp material. but i did use it to hold snaps to sintra tabs and it holds incredibly well to that. (then i gooped the snap-tab to the inside of the armor)
Here is a pic of Chicago screws so you know what they look like
I always just hot glue the visors in
That being said, there are a couple of things that can bite you. If the inside of the helmet isn't nice and smooth, it won't sit right.
If the visor is shaped a bit differently than the helmet, you may get some gaps. I've never really been worried about those myself. I don't think the originals were installed perfectly either. A minor gap will just let more air in, which is a Good Thing.
