Long day at work, slow day of progress on armor and buy'ce.
I was able to cut out a visor. Ended up using the plastic-glass from a poster frame. I got four templates cut (so I can allow some to be broken during test fitting) and one broke promptly. No worries though. I have some trimming to do, but did find one that should do the trick nicely. Now I just need to get to Wal-Mart and buy some epoxy and wondow tinting. (Hopefully they'll have some green or tan)! I also raided the supply closet (AKA my basement) and found some spare helmet liner pads that should velcro into the helmet easily.

Yes, I know it's still clear and therefore a bit difficult to see, but I'll finish trimming it tomorrow and add the tinting on so I can attach it on Thursday.
Helmet pads (before installation):
I'll definately hit up Wal-Mart tomorrow to get the last two items and begin painting the helmet tomorrow. Hopefully I will be able to say it's done Thursday so I can spend Friday putting finishing touches on the entire kit.
