i4's with flex bottoms

I've recently run across a picture of this cool mask. It's a Dye i4 with a Proflex bottom. The only place I can find the picture is on a German paintball forum.

Has anyone tried anything like it? I'm hoping that someone might have some tips before I destroy a $140 i4.

you have to cut the goggle, and put holes in the lens frame for the bottom to mount to

Honestly that looks filty, but i agree with junits, it looks a little fake.

I wouldnt be able to imagine how thats even possible and still make it look that nice, almost like its supposed to be.

Damn that would be awesome if they are real. I am getting some flex bottoms soon, I will have to see if it possible to mod them.

I keep finding these pics with 0 pics of the inside to show cuts etc

If anyone comes across some inside pics I will gladly modify a set or two. They are just using rivets to hold them in place, just curious how much material was removed from the inside of the i4 for those to fit snug as in the pics.

This one seems like a PS. I matched up a bottom to an I4 and it doesn't seem to go that far back to the ear. Would be cool, just not sure if I would trust it to protect my face, haha.

It looks like they bent the bottoms a bit to tuck them under the bit of i4 before they riveted it.

Damn I might have to search for a cheap pair of i4s. It seems completely doable. The only thing I still hate about the i4s is the forehead protection. It is pretty easy to mod visors on them though, and the i3 visor looks pretty slick on them imo.

It is doable. You just need a saw, etc to make it fit. Here's one I found months back

definitely DONT destroy your i4 mask.
I have an easy easy mod thats really inexpensive and all you do is put really small screw holes in the jaw line of the i4. Absolutely no cutting to the i4.

Im sending my email some pictures of my mask from my phone so i can post them, but basically all you do is destroy a 15 dollar mask by cutting the "jaw" portion off, and screw/bolt it to your mask with two small screws, and your done. when you want to resell the mask, the holes are so small Im sure no one would have a problem with it.
