Flex 8

Some pics of my Flex 8 and my homemade mirror lens-


The visor

Lens and Visor


Left Side


Right Side


Both Sides


Flex 8 Body. Chemically recolored with black accents and cut down (the top).

What do you think? I've also gone over the sharpie with black from an airbrush. The reason I used sharpie, and in some places, visa marker was to see how it looked. The black is clean and goes through the venting. I am going to try and drill out the mouthguard area more and see if I can build in a fan and some lights so that the lens can always be seen through.

When I oppened it at christmas last year it said Flex 8. And for the mirror lens I used a thermal blanket cut to size and glued down around the edges.

Just super glue, and what kind of mask is it then? The mirror holds up really well, the only problems I had were getting gogged in the same spot starts to pull the film off. If the film comes off it will still hold up, its a brand new lens under it.
