The only thing inside mine is my head.

I'm working on getting some sort of padding in there.

In the bucket, not in my head.

Right now all I have in my helmet are a pair of fans. And a lot of padding. They fans've done well so far positioned as they are for circulation - also keep the visor from fogging up on account of the frivolous need to breathe. I'm'na see about adding a sound kit next paycycle. RF servo would be nice, maybe.

Mine is empty at the moment 'cause I'm still painting it. But I will be adding padding (maybe a hard hat liner) and El Wire. Thinking of doing a voice changer/amp, but I'm not sure yet. I was originally planning on doing a servo for my RF, but I finally decided it was a little too expensive for me right now.

That is all there is to it right now, but there is plenty of room for electronics inside.
Planned upgrades include:
Radio
RF servo
Nightvision system (I already have a camera to mount in the RF, I just need a veiwing system.)
Neckseal with fans

Oh, that sounds so awesome Ruusaar! Another toy I will have to buy when I finish my bucket.

Just so you know, mine are placed where they are because they can't go anywhere else. It's be nice to have one at the back fo my helmet drawing fresh air in, but that would be a bad idea as the fan would try to eat my hair, get tangled, start a fire, and fry my brain more than it already is. I know a lot of people have one above the visor and one at the keyholes on the back.

Nothing in mine but a little bit of padding.  But it's going to be retired anyways when I get my new helmet in the next month or so.  Not sure what I'll put in it, but there will be padding and fans for sure.  It seems the rest of the suit isn't that bad, but once the helmet goes on, I'm sweating buckets...my bucket.   :P

You can probably do the same thing with some foam and glue for cheaper.  Go check at a fabric/hobby store.

where do you get egg carton foam? I've looked at home depot but they say they don't carry it

That's what I'm talking about. It's a power generator, in the middle of a tree. Strange

Haha. That is because Egg Carton Foam is usually used for beds and couches.

I would try WalMart, Costco, or .... Hmm a sofa shop? Any bedding store should carry them. Maybe "Bed Bath and Beyond?"
