Progress is slow but the bucket is slowly taking shape...

Started with sanding the teeth out with the dremel then using needle files to get the desired shape of the teeth.

Next clamped the hood to the faceplate and got the brow where i wanted it

Drilled some holes and bolted together.

Now onward to the ears!!!!

A quick question to anyone who cares to answer...I'm looking into cutting the lens into 2 pieces and making hold down clamps. I've seen some ideas while doing research but cannot remember where i saw them. Does anyone happen to know some links to some good ideas on this?

Thanks

Just a suggestion on the lenses to not fit them completely flush.  Leave some gap - this allows air flow and helps prevent fogging.

Now I just need to tear it apart and plasti dip the inside then reassemble and paint the ears vocoder and frown.

Got the idea for the lens install from another builder really liked how he did it so I decided to copy.(Not sure who it was since I follow so much content, but I will try and find the name and edit in the credit deserved :D)
