Questions before starting helmet
« on: May 22, 2014, 11:51 AM »
Just got an HBF helmet. I already checked out the HBF guidelines but I wanted to ask if I could keep the dent (battle damage) as long as I do a new paint job on it, or if I have to fill it in. Also, what material (and glue) do I use to make the visor thinner? Thanks.

 The dent is iconic to Boba. It needs to be filled. From the thread for converting a HBF helmet:


The front of the helmet MUST have the following changes:
1.   Dent must be filled


For the visor you can use a #5 dark green welding visor and hot glue to hold it in.

You can, however, make your own dent somewhere else.  It's just a dent in that exact spot is likened to Boba.
