The hole electronic for my helmet is from ukswrath! Thank you, Tony! This is a real good system and in my view it is worth its money!!! :jc_doublethumbup:

 

But step by step:

First I installed the "face-obscurer" (mesh behind the frown):
DSC_0272_zpsqfbvnh4l.jpg

The flynet worked quite good, but nevertheless I glued the net with the E-6000 too.
DSC_0273_zpshizzzbm1.jpg
always layered

I enclosed a piece of paper, because I didn't want the glue on the clamps. That's the reason for the white rest paper on the net. But it doesn't matter, cause no one would ever see this.

here you can see the mesh fixed in the helmet:

DSC_0300_zps9wfe81si.jpg

Here the first electronic-piece in my helmet. I installed it on the top of the helmet (on the inside :P ):

When the inlay is mounted, nothing disturbe.

For that first I had to mark the position of the inlay.

DSC_0281_zps5z4zen0b.jpg

on the backside of the battery pack I glued 2 stripes of velcro:

(and inside the helmet the counterpart):

Ta-ta-ta-taaa!!! It fits!!! B)

Next step ... Ears ... ... First I marked the "hearing amplifier". The tape is for obscuring the surface. Be careful while drilling!!!

...

After that I installed the Hovi Mics:

Another important point, stow the cables is not as easy as it semms to be :huh:  I have to find a way of stow all cables and amplifiers, or it's getting tightly and uncomfortable.

May the force be with you!

It went on with the ears

Results:
.) first step: tools
DSC_0312_zps2l13chzm.jpg

.) after that test-fitting of the ears for gluing

.) it fit well. Draw contours for easier painting it and mark three holes for better hearing (does this sentence make sense?):
DSC_0313_zpsrvjxn5u6.jpg

DSC_0314_zpsznc1eyxu.jpg

.) make a hole where marked with needle and hammer:

This ear has to be clamped for two days. That means tomorrow I can glue the second one. Yey!!

The "s-type-neck trim"

Every decal are on the helmet now. It looks from time to time more like a stormtrooper helmet :smiley-sw013::
DSC_0354_zpsw0xfwbrt.jpg

DSC_0356_zpslmdmzlqx.jpg

I glued a piece of velcro on the bracket and on the "SHA"-System (Stormtrooper Hearing Assist), the battery packs, the speaker and the iComm. All will be fixed on the bracket as shown.

Here a overview to know where I have to fix everything

The cable from the battery pack of the fans to the bracket runs between the helmet inlay and the lining of the inlay.

And again something has happened B)

The Soundsystem is installed and worked! I have already tested everything of it. The Stormtrooper Hearing Assist works very fine, except the fans are turned on. The hovi mics also do their job very well.

And here the pictures of my "new" helmet B) B) B)

With super glue! The only way how to fix it fast and without clamps! (my opinion) :)

But you have to be VERY careful with putting it in, cause the glue on the lense is not removeable (at least I don't know how :/ )

I really wouldn't use superglue on acrylic lenses. It will cause the plastic to fog up.

Use hot glue or epoxy, silicone or E6000. Hot glue being the quickest

I have to make up for work:

The soles are already painted white, although they are not finished. I did some mistakes at painting:

1.) I bought a too little can of paint.
2.) I have the shoes not taped properly.
 

The progress of painting is not finished yet, because of too less colour and the seams are already black on some points.

At the last few pictures you can see the position of the tape (about 2-3mm over the seam). I hope it will be working better so ... ... ...

 

merry X-mas!
