Introduction: Repair Broken Helmet Visor
As most of you downhillers know, the first part to break on your helmet is the visor.
In my unprofessional opinion the visor isn't really for protection, it's mainly to keep sun out of your eyes so I felt safe epoxying mine back together.

Step 1: Epoxy
Line up the visor pieces as if it wasn't broken (do this while it is still on the helmet, NOT as shown in the picture). Apply epoxy to the outside first. I recommend plumbers epoxy as it is extremely strong and simple to use.
Don't worry too much about the roughness, you can sand it after it dries.
Wait the appropriate amount of time according to your specific epoxy label.
Remove the visor from the helmet.
Then apply epoxy to the inside of the visor.
Step 2: Sand
Sand the epoxy down. You can sand it as far as you want, because the epoxy on the bottom will reinforce it (Do not sand the inside).
Use a lower # grit, followed by a higher # grit.
I chose not to sand it down too much for some reason, didn't really feel like it lol.
Step 3: Tape It Up
Use painters tape to cover the rest of the visor, unless you just want to paint the whole visor.
Step 4: Painting
Paint it up!
Step 5: End
Put it back together and go ride!
