I am new to this and am starting with a rubies Jango Fett helmet. The visor in it sucks and I want to cut it out and replace it. I have seen people mention getting a welders shield and cut it to fit. I am afraid I will cut it to the wrong size since I do not have a template. What would be the best way to replace this visor? Should it be flush with the inside of the helmet of fit exactly in the space that is cut?
Thanks for your help!
This visor sucks. It is too green. It would look like crap on the Jango helmet. Now I have to send it back and find another one. This thing is Bright Green. Though it would look more like the photos you guys posted where it looks black.
where can i get a BLACK face shield? I've checked all of the links in this and several other threads. I know, the green one is good, I've got it in my ESB helmet, but for my custom, i'll definately need a black one.
any help appriciated
*EDIT: Disregard; Ebay... why didn't I think of that sooner?
Go on ebay and look for rembrandt-enterprises, or type 'fett t-visor' in the search bar. This guy sells them with a buy-now price of like $10. I bought one, and while I don't think its going to fit my particular helmet, it's still a darn good one.
I use the dark green visor here: http://www.rjsafety.com/EH21.html

It's flexible and soft enough to cut with scissors, yet thick enough, so no need to heat it in the oven. To attach it to the helmet, I just used two-part epoxy putty. It hardens to a metal and sticks to anything. Score the helmet surface with an exacto blade a couple times, then apply putty. Hold the visor in place until the putty hardens to a metal - about 3-5 minutes.
