    Jun 5, 2014, 5:34 AM - sintra supplier? and bondo quantity #1

    Okay folks, I hate to ask it because I've seen a thread already where this was answered. But I don't seem to be able for the life of me to find it again. I saw that someone posted a link to a sintra supplier on ebay. Could you post it again? I've got three custom Mandos to start building.

    Also, today I will be buying some bondo to start the helmet build. How much will it take to do one helmet?

    Thanks in advance and I hate to clutter the forum with a question that has already been answered elsewhere.

    Well, I have put together most of my paper helmet as per the instructions here: Tutorial: Scratch Build Helmet - Start to Finish by Ori Cabur . I will most likely print off new templates today and transfer them to poster board and start finding out the hard way how far a 2 lbs 9 oz can of Bondo Glass will go. I'll possibly start a new thread on this build soon, but it may go slow as I will buy what I need for the build as the credits allow.

    I buy my sintra from Artist And Craftsman. It's a good bit cheaper if you go into the store (I'm in Charleston, SC). See if there's a location near you. Link: Sintra PVC Board - Sintra PVC Board

    A lot of sign shops carry it too. Ask around and you might find scraps for free.

    I don't like to buy stuff like sintra or ABS online because big flat sheets cost a lot to ship.

    I went to the local sign shop here in Connecticut. They charged me $68. Per sheet. They offer different thicknesses as well.

    Picked up a sheet of 3mm from a sign shop here in town (Normal, IL) for 32.00. They also carry 6mm for 65.00. If you have a sign shop near by, they will probably have it.

    How big are these sheets? Artist and Craftsman sells a pack of six 2ft by 2ft 3mm (1/8 inch) sheets for $50, I think.
