****WARNING: THIS IS MY FIRST INSTRUCTABLE SO IT HAS THE POTENTIAL TO BE VERY, VERY, GHETTO****
Step 1: Parts
*T-connector for plastic tubing
*4 cup holders (I "borrowed" them from the local target that has a starbucks inside. Their idea is to clip these things onto carts to hold your coffee as you shop. My idea is to clip beer to my head).
*2 camo coozies
*8 cable ties (those velcro things that you use to keep your cables neat)
***Please note that I built this thing a year ago and don't have pictures to document.
Step 2: Attaching the Cup Holders:
To attach the cup holders use your velcro cable ties. Run the calbe ties through the precut holes in the camo fabric of the helmet and then through the cup holders themselves (this is hard to describe, check out the closeup).
Step 3: Attaching the Camo Coozies:
Step 4: Run the Tubing...
From the bottom of the t-joint I ran one but to my mouth, which was pretty short (eight inches at most). Next the top of the joint runs in a straight line to the back left coozie (which can be switched to the front left if there is a cup there).
Finally, I fan the back of the t joint around the back of the helmet and looped it back to the right side (once again this can go in either the right back coozie or the right front cup depending on which drinking mode you're in).
Step 5: Enjoy...and Some Improvements
b) Proned to walk into things
So all in all this project satifies all my drunk criteria. I would like to note one improvement which would be adding a tip to the end of the drinking tube (much like you would find on a camel back). This would keep pressure in the system and eliminate a lot of foam issues.
I also wanted to get a first aid cross for it and make it a medic helmet (get it). It would be a pretty badass halloween custome, all you would need is a black t shirt and army pants fromt he thirft store. You'd be everyone's favorite guest.
Other than that I love my helment!
