cool thanks. I was thinking it was used for insulation for some reason so that's why I went to Home Depot. Should have figured Wal Mart would have it, they've got everything at everyday low prices!!!

I used self adhesive foot arch pads that I had left over from my treatments from my foot doctor. They were unused.

I just saw 5 rolls of blue egg carton foam at my local Hobby Lobby yesterday. Hobby Lobby Michaels & Hancock fabrics can be my best friends when it comes to armoring up

That egg carton foam is pretty cool. I'm beginning to think I might do that instead of the hard hat liner.

just a blanket suggestion, don't get white foam. It turns yellow/tan/brown real fast and looks kind of disgusting

The 2 pads at the cheekbone area hold the helmet right in place. I stuck them on and it was nearly perfect. The 2 in the back help some but the fronts do most of the work. I fits and holds just fine. I got lucky.

Did y'all weld the switches/batteries/fans in place, or did you use something else?

Far as I know, pretty much everyone either taped, glued or velcro'd the little bits and pieces in. IMO (I have little humility, so no humble opinion :P) Hot glue or velcro are probably your best bet. Hot glue can be easily chipped away, yet holds thing securely, and with velcro, all you need to do is pull it off and affix opposite-side velcro to a new battery/switch/fan/etc. Keep in mind you're going to have to replace and upgrade little bits always, so don't use any fastener too strong unless it's on something that you can replace altogether.

Hot glue will probably be my best bet.  It's cheap, and I already have some handy!
