Ok, the inside of that helmet is AWESOME. Where'd that padding come from?

Oh, and great job wiring in the switch.

The switches and power supply are great!.The toggle is from an old computer box,the other is from a rc remote controled car i bought from salation army for 4 bucks.It is a depression switch with its own red led that shows you when its on.It also came with a 9.2 volt rechargable battery that i used to power everything.it will run 4 led lights (without resisters)and cpu fan for about 36 hrs straight.great deal.

The whole suit is pep but the helm i just resined then sprayed the inside with low expanding foam then removed the pep shell (i should have left it on but the foam would not cure so i had to cut it off and cut the helm in half to expose the core so it would cure)the rest is pep resin,glass,foam inside resin paint outside.I tried many testings as you can see by my supply of test pieces.the foam is very lightwieght but harder to get detail hence the painted on detail.

No helmet visor.I used clear plastic which i had to pop out on halloween because it was raining and he fogged it up i should have used anti fog spray..
