I want to make a replacement thermal for my jt flex

I stepped on my lense, cracking the thermal. Just to be clear my mask is totally safe, it's just the thin thermal lense was cracked. Anyways, I removed that part and saved it.

What is the plastic that is used, and where can I get it or a like substitute? Same question for the double sided foam.

I understand that it will probably cost more than just buying a replacement lense, but I've been extremely successful building a bunch of paintball stuff in the past month, and I guess it's an addiction.

Here's what it comes down to, is it worth risking your eyesight for the rest of your life just to make a lens instead of buying one?

Yeah, just buy some new lens and be done with it. Cheaper and safer.

Did you all smoke crack?

The lens is fine. I hope someone here can answer the question.

If you stepped on the lens I'm willing to bet all $70 in my name that it's primary layer is also structurally compromised. Now if you'll kindly think for a moment that stepping on a lens = bad then you'll see why none of us really care to help someone continue to use a lens that's obviously got a high chance of being severely damaged.

This. Just because there aren't any visible cracks, it doesn't mean that it isn't compromised and weakened. Don't risk it.
