Well, if any ones keeps up with some of my post, most know I'm sounding like a broken record with school and work and all that lovely jazzy stuff. So since I've been taking pictures as I go along to post on here later and upon my facebook page, I decided to update you guys on whats going on with my deal. SO here we go.
Got the bucket a while back and also the visor from bikerchick, amazing visor btw which I'm playing around with now but still more work to do on it before it's offically finished.
Although some of my WIP pics are on my photo and WILL look like osik on here, I'm not even going to bother, BUT my other photos I can show what has happened over the past month...I think it's been a month...ANYWHO:
This is after I got her sanded down and everything along with working with another friend of mine from Rivercity Fanboys and also 501st (also in progress for him). In such a rush to get it primed, I forgot to give it another sand down and to be honest, it looks great after being primed and everything.
Then came the black after we picked out some pretty nice colours. I wanted to go with my older colours (black and red) but going back through the colour meanings red was mourning the death of a father and well...my buir is still alive and kicking so I didn't wanna put red back on, so I went with the 'outgoing' orange instead, again requested by RCFB guy who is a long time life friend i've known for years. Later on getting the orange trim around the visor, I didn't cover up enough to counter for over spray and he suggested I cover it up more and, of course, my response 'Nahhhh man I got this..." "Ah shab...". So after a week that has happened I went to go back to his house to pick it back up today and worked on it after I got off work and back home for a good few hours. Most of it was spent because of my own negligence so I was covering up boo boos and making it nice again.
and what it looks like now
My buir helped me with some of the trimming using a very VERY kick shebs dremel-like tool. Lets say air compressors do amazing WONDERFUL things and for how powerful it is, cut through this like butter. So it has finger prints all over it because, again, I wanna rush things and not take my time with it. I think it's because I'm used to working with deadlines and all. SO getting that all down and done, I hand painted the rest of the visor insides and made it look much better than it had been a few hours before and now I'm liking where it's at for the moment and how much time I can spend on it and such.
So things to do still:
Cut out the keyholes for venting purposes
Pad the inside
And then install the visor
I still have a long ways to go before it's where I want it to be but here we are. Better late than never eh?
