    earcaps you can make with the WoF temps (he has a set for them!!! ) and RF as well...

    The keyslot is a bit tricky...I make mine out of plastic, then cut out the required shape from the helmet, then glue it in...

    we're considering walking into the store with our blasters (its a small town) and just see the reaction.... but then theres always the possibility that they think that we're robbing the place

    the whole problem with the slowness of this project is that in about a month snow will seriously blanket everywhere! And they're predicting the coldest winter in a long time!
