    Hi, Everyone

    So a few weeks ago I received my FPH2 from Wasted Fett, and haven't had the time to post till now. After a few weeks of trying to decide between the two Pre pro 1's, I decided on trying to replicate the "Eyes" helmet.

    I can't say enough good things about the Kit, and couldn't put it down when I first got it :)

    Once I worked up the courage to drill in to it, I started, to work on the left ear

    I had quite the time trying to get the ear to line up correctly, but once I widened up the bottom hole, it fits pretty
    good now.

    After that I decided to take a brake from the ears and worked my way to the key slots. Which so far has been my favorite part.

    They're not perfect. I messed up a a bit on the first one, making it slightly larger than the rest.

    Then I got a bit excited and when trying to remove a piece of gelcoat from the right blinker, I wasent being careful enough and chipped it a little bit.

    It should be no problem to fix though, with just some putty.

    Hmm. Yeah I can't see them either. I'm not sure how to fix that

    The problem is that your code is not ending with [/IMG] (note the slash in front of the IMG).

    More pre-pros is always a good thing!
    The prep can be tedious, but the better you prep, the better the helmet will be. :)

    Key Slots are done for now, I will clean them up a bit later on.

    Got the T visor area, VERY roughly cut out. I definitely have a few hours of sanding ahead of me

    Alright! I finished most of the filing/ sanding, last night. And I really should have invested in some bigger file's.

    Couldn't wait any longer to see it built, so some parts like the right ear cap, and visor are just taped on for now, intill I can get them more permitly attached. But most of the assembly is done, now its almost time for paint!
