    Wasn't happy with my previous bucket, so the work begins on a fiberglass bucket. The material is a sheet of 1/16 thick fiberglass.

    Looking good!!

    This reminds me... I really need to make that thread on how I modified the bottom of my WoF template helmet to give it a more screen accurate shape.

    I found a sheet of 1/16 " acrylic at Lowe's and decided to play around with it. If you layer it , it is pretty manageable.
