    They do make visors that have both horizontal and vertical curves. The helmet has hjc-11 in it, I think. Maybe 13. Someone has posted about in the forums recently. I can't seem to find the topic though.

    dang!! that looks good!!!


    It looks to me like someone will just have to do an awesome "Visor Installation" tutorial. I'll think about, but I am a busy man.

    An alternative that I came to was actually casting the bolts into the helmet for mounting the visor later. Wrap your brain around that one, and if you have any questions, PM me.

    Great tut Sean ^^ I definately want to do a duel recon visor in the future for my Dare armour, but I was actually wondering;

    I have a full-face motorcycle visor I want to horozontally slice in half as accurate as possible, basically to make a visor for 2 recon helmets but i'm not 100% sure what dremmel head you are using thats giving you the best accuracy for cutting >< The visor I have feels quite flimsey and i'm terrified to take the dremmel to it before asking first.

    I do have a question. I have searched all over, perhaps I am blind, but how exactly do you attach the visor to the helmet itself? I have searched all over and would like a tutorial for attaching the visor to the helm. Hot glue? Super glue? Mighty Putty? I am at a loss, unfortunately. Also, had an idea for tinting it orange. Would it be possible to apply regular reflective window tint to a clear visor and then install orange led's to the brim of the helm, directed at the plain tinted visor and have it show the orange color? Or would that probably look really crappy?

    I'm going to try this tutorial also, I bought two visors, but I was wondering if anyone ever tried using Oracal's transparent golden yellow vinyl? I do a lot of vinyl graphics and was thinking of ordering some of this vinyl. I'm going to check their actual swatch chart for color, but I may be cutting a vinyl version out of transparent yellow gold.

    nice tutorial. i have a quick question: how would u mount the visor to the helm and what glue is preferred so the after the visor is glued it will still stay clear. (after the glue dries its still clear)

    Please do not"Necro". Read the rules and stickies. Consider this you verbal warning.

    I'm pretty sure it's a bot.

    I used the same method. I just add double side tape in few places to hold them together :p
    Thanks for this mini tutorial :)
