    Last week I sanded down that silver paint and started preparing the helmet for a new paint job!

    As you can see, I have to do a few more coats


    I also started working on the gloves and the ear pucks

    Re: Volpin Thomas Helmet

    Hey guys! It's been awhile since I posted, I've been very busy!
    A few days ago I took my Thomas costume to my first big convention! I had a blast!


    I also met another Thomas! He was really cool!

    Re: Volpin Thomas Helmet

    This looks rad, did you use the spray method or the mirror tint method?

    Re: Volpin Thomas Helmet

    Thank you! Yeah, I used red VHT on the outer visor and chrome tint behind

    I found VHT pretty hard to use. Some visors turned out nice and some turned out really bad, that was basically the only one I could see through. I think I'll try red window film next time instead of VHT!

    The inside doesn't. It takes plastidip will. I lined mine completely with foam and motocross liner anyways so it doesn't serve much of a purpose.

    Oops, posted to the wrong post on a page back.

    How do you get the chrome tint to not bubble? I never had luck with any of mine.
