    I guess there's a first time for everything, this is my first Stormtrooper helmet build, pretty much sorted appart from the Mic. tips. Flat bottomed object into a dished hole :facepalm you know the score! Some of you TK boys must have lost count how many times you've done this so what's the best method to get these fixed in?

    Drilled and bolted, hotglued..... whats your preference?

    Cheers ZOLTAR

    Bolted. Just punch a small hole in the plastic, shove the bolt through, and fasten on the other side with a washer and nut.

    Yeah I second the bolts, just drill the whole and washer/nut it onto there. If you think that isn't secure enough you could always put a small dab of hot glue on the backside to hold it.

    Any tips on getting them lined up to drill the hole in the right place?

    Bolt is how the originals are done. For screen accuracy, make sure you mark up your holes and drill to ensure a "rough and asymmetrical" appearance. :lol
