Ok I am fully aware fof the several differnt options out there at the moment for foaming the head... personally i like the idea of using uphoalstry foam.. it can be easily replaced as it starts to smell etc...

however i was sitting at home last night and had a bit of a brain fart... i have an old motorbike helmet sitting at home. its been around thr block a few times.. the padding is fully detachable and i know its a good fit....

just curios has anyone tried this method yet..

i'm going to have a go this evening... i'll stick an update in my hippie build thread

what i found was i had to effectively buit up the foam inside the mask, mainly at the back and top to shape it to the inside of a lid, trial and error, it's a long process
