    Jul 3, 2004, 3:53 AM - My revised Custom Fett Bucket!LOL #1

    Yes, I redid it. Again. Seems I can't stop. Frickin customs! There's no rules!

    I removed the "saber grips", as everyone calls them, from the cheeks. I wanted an "armored" look to the cheeks, but the black stripes always looked funny to me.

    See here:



    These are black plates with textured gray plates over them, and machined aluminum "ports". I'm looking to find an air brush propellant type mechanism for the ports, to give them a cool button-activated "fwissh!" action. Whaddya think? Any color advice? Criticisms? I'm not sure if I'm happy with the color- I just went into "autopilot" when I painted them.

    I love it! Not too many people who make customs really customize their bucket, but you have created something truly unique, and very cool!

    Very nice.

    The new cheek plates look better. You've got a nice color scheme goin' also.

    Quite impressive.

    (Breathes sigh of relief) Thank you! I had that "oh my god, what have I done" feeling this morning! Especially since this crap "extra time" epoxy doesn't seem to be drying (right earpiece antenna spike and cheek ports, for extra hold). Throw that crap out if you have it- it's useless. I'm sticking to Zap.

    Wow that's one radical looking helmet. I think you have truly customizd your helmet to the extreme, but you have done so tastefully. Great Job man!

    Wow, that's a huge compliment. Thank you. I tried to leave most of the "shape" intact, and not change anything so drastically that it was unrecognizable as a Mando helmet. I had some ideas like giving it side/top intakes, putting a mouthpiece/breather over the T-visor.....but it would change the dynamics of the bucket altogether.
