Anyone know how the Hero lenses were attached to the inside of the helmet? Or, I doubt this, but anyone have any pictures showing the inside of a Hero?

I picked up an awesome Hero helmet from Hedji and just finished painting it, but I'm only holding the lenses in with some tape. I'm wondering what a better way is to hold them in or how they were attached on the originals.

Also, was it ever determined what color they were? The ones I have are a very dark green and they fit the look pretty well. :cool:

They were greyish green.............or was it greenish grey... :conf

AFAIK there still isn't consensus on the color.

The bubble lenses in my SDS hero helmet are attached with velcro, I could take pictures if you need it. Besides this solution it is unclear the way the original ones were attached to the helmets.

Cheers

Ps: please, post pictures of your new lid whenever you got a chance :toothy

Yeah sure, if it's no trouble for you, I'd love to see some pics of the SDS lenses.

I'll take some pics of my helmet tomorrow. :)

Hedji didn't know what it was, and I definitely have no clue... Love it though...

Oh man that is sweet. Awesome job. How did you paint the tube stripes so well? Wish there was more hero kits out there.
