    Do orange and grey! Red is cool but cliche. I like your plan.

    Dremmels are handy to have, though I don't have my own yet.

    Cardboard: you making your own helmet? I made mine out of cardboard and bondo/fiberglassed it. It's been pretty easy and not too expensive.

    I did trash can too. Watch out for hot plastic: it hurts. But it's a pretty simple method.

    Sandpaper is something else you'll want to get, especially if you do trashcan and cardboard/bondo helmet.

    Good luck!

    HEY!!! im using red

    Red and black is very common.. but im throwin in some swamptanish colour in there to change it up a bit

    But the other thing is everyone agrees that red and black are cliche that no one picks them, which makes them not common haha

    BTW like your colour choices vod
