I am starting my first bucket build. I am using a skate helmet for the dome and working with a bucket for the back, sides and front. I have several questions I have not seen answered:
Is there a "best" type of bucket to use?

I have seen several orange home depot buckets, is it due to the ease of aquisition?

Should I attach the back and front separately or all at once?

Is it better to have a 2 piece front to slide in the visor or make just one and seal it in?

Any assistance would be appreciated.

The buckets donít matter too much any standard five gallon bucket works, just sand the surfaces really well.
Use two buckets. One for the inside layer thatís attached to the dome and one for the outside layer thatís attached with adhesive to the inside layer. You can alternate where the cut surfaces meet up. I personally would do the inner layer meeting up at the ears with a front and a back. And the top layer meeting up elsewhere. 
Most folks attach their visor on the inside surface but you could create a channel that the visor sits in as part of your design.
Syper has a good tutorial on visor install with screw posts.
