Introduction: How to Make a Daft Punk Thomas Helmet
In this instructable I will be showing you how to make a home made Daft Punk Helmet! It uses mostly house hold items and is very simple. Hope you enjoy! What you will need: A baseball helmet, cardboard, Bondo, a piece of hard plastic for the visor, gloss spray silver primer, gold or chrome spray paint, two cans, and lights (optional). First create the bottom design using cardboard or Luchofunks version. Make sure it fits. Add two the bottoms of two cans to the sides of the helmet for ears. Then, cover the helmet with Bondo, try laying it on thick and do not cover the holes on the cardboard, but cover holes and impressions on the helmet. Sand the Bondo down until completely smooth. Next, spray on the gloss primer with two coats and then the gold or chrome spray paint with another two coats. Let the helmet sit. Get a piece of hard, black, see-through plastic to go on as the visor. Try to get it to be the exact size as the hole in your helmet, and fit it in. Lastly, if you want lights drill a small hole through the side of the visor and add lights through the hole. I recommend LED light strips. If you don't want to add lights then you are finished, if you do then just follow the last step. I hope you enjoyed. Good luck!
