Hi!

I need some help on my Thomas Daft Punk Helmet build. I need some help figuring out how to build the visor for it. I've heard of using spare motorcycle visors but that route may be a little expensive for me. Do you guys know of any good ways to both make and tint a visor?

I haven't purchased one of these personally before, but it looks like it might be a good solution :)

The seller of these has made a Thomas Daft Punk helmet before as well, and while I'm not sure if he used the visors from that link on the helmet or not (the pictures don't say), it definitely seems likely: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.396516390478595.1073741835.396162623847305&type=3

Just cut a piece of clear PVC plastic (roughly the size of the visor) and heat it in your oven to a curve. Make a template of the opening and transfer that to the PVC for cutting. Then buy a car window tint sheet, transfer the template to the tint, cut and stick to the PVC (it should be adhesive backed). One visor ready to be glued in place:)
