It looks like I finally have a helmet !!... I just checked to see wether or not I was outbid on ebay and to my surprise I found out I had won !!! :cheers ( first time ever )
If anyone knows where In the UK I can get a black/tinted face shield from it would be very helpful :)

Many thanks
Randy

Bobamaker makes top quality stuff for sure, but I really want to get hold of a black/tinted face shield and do it myself :)
Thanks anyway:)

You should just go get a #5 tinted Welders shield.

I am looking for one but can only find clear or the ocasional green :facepalm .. I still say that the sale of the black/tinted ones are restricted in the uk ( at least I'm guessing thats the case )

The green face shield always looked terrible to my eyes, green visor with a green helmet !! what were the prop makers thinking off :facepalm :lol:

Thanks for the link Spidey Fett :) but unfortunately Omark appears to be a American site ( the home of Dodge chargers, twinkies and Hulk Hogan :lol: )

I surely will keep you all updated, starting with the moment it arrives and what the shape is like :lol:

Thanks :) ... it should arrive soon

A new thought on the visor... ( my father's idea not mine ) take a clear face shield and spray it with tinting agent ( I'm not sure what the stuff is actually called ? ).. any thoughts on this or perhaps someone has tried this before ?

Many thanks

I tried using that spray on tint stuff on my first car many moons ago........I wasn't impressed with it in the least bit. It seemes real difficult to get it even, but that was 15 years ago too....memory a little shady.......

I understand the trouble you're having trying to find welders visors in the UK, I still can't find a supplier for the green version. The USA based ones don't ship to the UK either.

If you have some clear acrylic that needs tinting, you can buy a self adhesive tinting strip from Halfords that goes on the inside of car windows, it sticks really well but is a little expensive. Oh, watch out for air bubbles when applying.

Good luck ;)

Thanks BobaMaker:)

I thought you get could get some sort of tinting stuff but I wasnt exactly sure was it was, luckily there are a couple of good car parts/repair shops in town :)

I found a couple of suppliers online who do the green face shields while I was looking for a black one, I'll see if I can find them again and pass the addresses onto you (y)
