Need some help/advice/thoughts on modding this mask.

Recommended Posts

Okay, so I really don't like the huge gap between the mask and goggles here;

I was thinking of first drilling some extra holes in the mask part itself to mount it closer, like this:

But then I tried this:

And it's already a bit better.

 

Then I noticed the top part of the brackets are connected with screws in 2 parts like so:

And I thought I could put some holes up there further down and closer to the front, but then I'd have to dremel some of the top of the bracket off for it to fit under the arc rail, and then thought it might be easier to do the same but with the bottom half of the brackets now with them underneath the mask, like so:

Any thoughts on this? I've got a ton of tools (like 3 drills and a million bits for them), dremel, etc, what'd be the cleanest way to go about doing it without 1) fucking it up 2) making it look shitty?

Anyone ever done anything similar?

 

Maybe I could just use gorilla glue or something on the inside of the brackets to secure them to the mask where I would drill the holes? But even with epoxy I'd be worried about it coming apart when donning / removing the helmet or something. 3D-printed smaller brackets?

 

Looking for any suggestions here.

 

Thanks in advance.

(Also you reckon a pair of Tan goggles would look better with this helm setup? The same pair comes in Tan.) 

Edit 2: Oh I just checked, it's only the top part that comes in Tan/MC, but may look better?

Looks like it was made for an alsatian, it's got a muzzle.

 

All you can do is just drill holes and see.

You like to live dangerously, I once wrote Alsatian and got no end of abuse. I believe the owners like to call them German Shepards, (funnily enough not Nazi Death Dogs).

Pricey bit of kit though, £35-45 so don't wanna ruin them.

I've got the one that covers the ears too for running without a headset;

That one runs about £45 too.

I might chop the bottom of the brackets off so I can angle it back a bit and make the seal better now I know it looks good, the groove inside the mask prevented it so just did the best I could there.

Did you drill your wrist? Do you need a grown up to help next time?

I tried to kill myself 2 weeks ago. But thanks for the snark.

 

Edit: Lozart actually pm'd me and apologised. He's a cool dude.
