This is a very cost-effective way to create disposable visors for your Full-face style helmets. This is a good way to save money because these style helmets are generally at least a couple hundred dollars cheaper than the helmets with "proper visors". Most of the materials and tools you should have lying around the house (if you're reading this website you should have more than enough). It only takes about 20 minutes total. (not held responsible for any assumptions as to what it will protect you against or cuts, burns, harm you receive during the process) (ALSO, this is not tested for extreme conditions)
Step 1: Gather your Materials
For this project you will need:
-A two litre pop bottle (no-name brands seem to spring into a roll, which could be good or bad, depending on how you look at it.)
-Some velcro, enough of both sides (hoops and hooks) to cover the outer edge of where you're applying it
-A helmet with an open space for the visor to go
-Exacto knife (deadly)
-Sharpie (or other permanent marker)
-Something big enough to hold enough water to immerse, and hold the two liter pop bottle
Step 2: Get that unsightly and sticky label off!
Get out your deadly Exacto knife and cut that hideous label off, being careful not to nick the plastic. It should look like this.
Step 3: Get rid of that layer of paper still stuck to the bottle
That layer still stuck to the bottle? GONE, get your container (or sink) and fill it with hot water, also, fill the pop bottle with water (so it will stay in the container) and let it sit for 5 minutes. When you take it out, dry it off, and use your fingernails to pick off the paper, it shouldn't be that hard at all. There will be a small amount of glue left where the paper was, if this bugs you, you can take the extra time with anything relatively abrasive and a gentle household cleaner (orange cleaner, hand soap) to get it all off, it really isn't that much of a problem though, these things are disposable.
