that's it for the helmet,now the gloves.

because i don't own a vacuum form machine and won't be able to make one so i used multiple layers of cardboard and filled them with bondo.

Looks great! How did you deal with the flexible bill on the Volpin helmet? I've been hesitant to finish mine because the visor gap closes when you set the helmet down for long periods and gapes wide open when you rest it on a helmet stand. The gap goes from 2" to 4.5". Did you just glue all around the visor to hold it all together?

not a big daft punk fan, (tron sound track killer though) not really listen stuff, anyway, either of the helmets are bad ass looking, great looking build so far, got your leather jacket ready?
