Jimmi TLJ Helmet Paint and Interior

Recommended Posts

I'm really close in finishing my armour. I was hoping to know which black paints (glossy, satin, flat/matte) were used to paint the different areas of the helmet (visor, teeth, etc.). From what I see, around the lens (visor) is glossy black, teeth are matte black, and the mesh and the stripes are satin black. The parts that I am not sure are the trapezoids. Are they glossy or satin?


Also, would it be possible to know how the lens is attached to the interior of the helmet?

Your correct on the Black, I did Traps in Gloss. 


As to the lens, i did this: 

Epoxied the Chicago screws base to the inner of the helmet and allowed to dry.  then i layed the lens over and used a black sharpie marker to jot where to drill the holes. finally used the screw to secure.

I know the strip above the eyes is Matte. I did the teeth with a matte finish, but everything else that is black in gloss.


I think I have some pictures of how I did the visor. I used some Tee-nuts that I epoxied to the sides of the helmet (Over the ears) then I drilled holes into the visor and used screws to put them in. 


for added strengthening and protection of the Tee Nuts I used some Apoxie sculpt to just cover them up a bit.







This last image is completed so if you zoom in you can kind of see the matte in the teeth and around the brow.
