    What is the type of rubber called you use for Stormtrooper Helmet Forehead Trim?

    A common name I can use at a hard ware store would be great.

    I bought a TE style helmet but it only came with the vacumformed
    pices. So hard ware store names for anything I can use on a TK helmet
    would be awesome! A reply would be much Appreciated!

    See the last post in this thread:

    Best to use for brow trim - First Imperial Stormtrooper Detachment

    The most accepted sources: Seal-direct or Weber's. Easiest is probably to go to TK-4510's site to pick up enough for just your bucket, though:

    They also sell a ton of this stuff for a couple of bucks on the Evil-Bay. A few sellers in the prop reproduction category have it if I recall correctly. You have to be careful on the Bay, but good stuff can still be found.

    TK 4510 is a good source for everything.

    yep, but you pay a little extra for the "one stop trooper shop" service. And I'm not blaming him, just saying you can save a little by showing some initiative, which I guess is true for most everything in this hobby
