Show your tips and ideas of how you put yours together. I know there's so many ways. I would like to get ready so when my new FPH arrives.

I was planning something very similar, but instead of the nut to hold the visor in place I was going to use a rubber washer. Some variation on the method Spideyfett posted is probably the best. It will hold the visor in place and allow it to be changed easily if needed.

I've always been lame and just used hot glue. I don't care much about what the inside looks like though. :)

Hot glue works too LOL. I'm using hot glue to hold my Vader lenses in.

Similar to the T nut method, I use regular bolts, grind the head back until its about 1mm thick then fix them to the inside of the helmet using filler, then I place my visor in and secure it using 4 custom made aluminium plates with holes in them the same size as the bolt, then secure with a nut and washer

Wait, Seeker's asking for advice on putting together a Fett Helmet? That's like Tiger Woods asking for advice on putting!:lol:

Well, I am having troubles with this. I bought my T-VIsor from en eBay seller that carries tons of these, and now that I have it I realize that the vertical portion of the 'T' is exactly as wide as the opening on the mask. This leaves no room for attaching it properly. I can't even hot-glue it in there, let alone bolt it.

Ideas?!

Quick question, which helmet do you own, and did you get the correct 'sized' visor? I know 'R' offers 3 versions so as to NOT have this problem.

My set up...

There are actually three different sizes of T-Visors out there.

1. smallest size, which fits the Rubies style helmets.
2. regular size, which fits most versions like Sgt. Fang, Fettpride, Bobamaker etc.
3. large size, which is for the famed "Mystery helmet".

Your best bet is to follow the posted tutorials on making your own out of a tinted safety face shield. You'll get a perfect fit every time. (y)


And Halo_1, I must say that I love your mounting system. ;)

I was actually meaning that I noticed that your visor mounting method is exactly the same as mine, right down to the plastic kitchen faucet washers. Save for the fact that your chicago screws look to be made of brass, I just thought it was cool to see another member that had the exact same idea as me! :cheers

Thank you kind sir...but isn't mine the same setup as the rest :confused Thanks though.

Stay safe,

Tim.

LOL! Copy that bro! I had a ton of those Chicago Screws as they are cheap here, both the aluminium and brass types. They are mostly used for Catalogs and Menus here. ;)

In fact the brass ones where the same ones I used for my Gal's Jango belt setup.

Anyhow, :cheers

Stay safe,

Tim.
