    Oct 24, 2012, 9:26 AM - WIP: Coder's Custom Helmet (and Armor) #1

    So i already posted these pics on MMCC. This is my first attempt at modifying a helmet. The helmet in question is a Rubies 2pc Jango that i bought a while back. What i am going for is a Slicer. Being a programmer IRL, i thought that that would fit me best. All of the raised edges are bondo ( i like to make things difficult ) So here are the pics of what i got done last night. It kinda looks like ****, what with all the lines and sanded paint. I look forward to any and all feed back. Thanks.

    Managed to get done with PT a little early and took to the Dremel. Cut out part of the new visor slot. when the visor goes in, it will have two layers. The raised area still needs a little TLC but i figured i would go ahead and show it anyway. going to make more raised areas tonight on the back of the dome.

    I feel like i am on a roll! Knocking out this thing left and right. So i finished trimming the visor area. when i insert the visor, i will insert a normal T-visor and then cut a piece to put in the cut out area to give it a raised area. i think it will look pretty freaking sweet. I have to go buy more bondo tonight so i can start on the rest of the dome. hope fully i will have more pics up tonight.

    Coder, this thing is awesome! Keep this going for sure. I really like the way you went with the visor on the helmet. Great work!
