More updates, got my gold materials in today so ill be working on the top portion wrap & testing the rivets today.
More progress pics of fitment.
Note: The ear area will be trimmed more but want to get everything mounted before I circle back and decide on how much/what angle to trim at.
Im happy with how much additional coverage I have with these bottoms, I have new foam, and 2 lens on order. HD & Bronze Fire to finish it up.
This shows how much was trimmed & the 3 holes drilled for the rivets. Note that I should have left a little more at the nose area, this will work fine but id recommend leaving another 1/4" of material there. Ill end up using plastic welding to re-enforce the area.
This is a pic showing how much of the bottoms needed to be removed to slide into place under the i4's. I rounded the edges and removed quite a bit in the cheek area.
Fitment without rivets. The nose piece will need to have that small section where the original i4 logo sits due to the design, it will be raised up a tad more than in the pics but there will still be a small area there, there is no way around this but after the top is wrapped it wont be nearly as noticeable. Sometimes its function>form.
