Just a question, i dont know if it bealongs here. those motorcycle visors, how do you cut patterns into them? isaw they were double layered, what does that mean? can i like put an exacto knife to them and one layer will cut off? or is it more complicated? hmm....

I am grateful for this noob list, but the only thing stopping me from making armor is that I can't seem to find a pepakura reader available for a macintosh computer... can anybody help me out or offer some advice/alternative?

WITH MUCH THANKS,

Watz

I found that one of the best ways to double layer the lenses is to first draw your pattern on one lense, then with a rotary tool cut out the design. Once done, simply push both lenses together. I wouldn't glue the lenses except along their outside edges and connect them to you helmet that way. That should prevent your vision from being blurred by the dried glue. I'd still ask around for other advice, perhaps someone else can give an easier and/or better suggestion. Good luck!

I too thank you for the sticky. I know the feeling of being overwelmed when you

start these projects for the first time. This makes your goals seem much more

achievable.
 
oh man thanks! this list is really helpful! there's alot i need to prepare obviously, an since my other half is deployed i'll have to wait to start on his armor, but making us our own spartan armor as well as making myself a grunt suit (i'm 5' lol) are goals in my life.
