Tech Boy's Steampunk Goggles!

About: Burnsides is an Art Student studying animation. Aside from Art, Burnsides spends his time as a campus IT employee and using his dorm room as a lab.

Alright! I have finally gotten around to doing this! So, here goes. 

Step 1: Things You'll Need.

You will need: 

1 pair of goggles 
1 Gatorade Cap 
2 Pennies 
4 small Nuts 
2 large wingnuts 
2 smaller wingnuts 
1 8'' piece of wire, I just cut up bits of clothes hanger... 
Some leather
Some Cereal, in case you get hungry
ROUND sunglass lenses
2 1 pint mason jar lids, just the ring part, you don't need the sealing component. 
And some spray paint! 

Tools include: 
Utility knife
Hot Glue/Epoxy, whatever floats your canoe. 

Step 2: Step 1

The picture is pretty explainy of the step. 


The paint took a VERY long time to dry, as it was hard for it to bond it with the plastic on the goggles. This was aggravating. 

Step 3: Step Two!

Step 4: Step 3!

Step 5: Step 4

Step 6: Cap Assembly

Step 7: TADA.

Alright, I know you might be disappointed with this, as it has been VERY late. 

I am sincerely sorry for this. I just get really busy with DI seasons. 

I am trying to get up more of a presence on this site, as I love it dearly. 

Thanks for waiting, and waiting, and waiting, and watching! 

-Tech Boy.

    You've taken some heat about the instructable itself - but many congrats on the project results. I can understand both.
    I for one was thoroughly entertained by your hand-drawn instructible!!

    Your instructions are very helpful and entertaining. I love your hand-drawn illustrations! Very easy to follow! These goggles look so good I thought there would be a lot more technical difficulty in the making. Your instructions reminded me that everything doesn't need to be difficult or technical. Thank you!

    I apologize, it is not my forte to write. I have attempted to show you how to make them. My apologies if it was not enough. There are tons of instructables that are done very very well, I suggest looking into them, I'm no good at explaining.

    Ah right. You should use at least one of those in place of Goggles0001.jpg.
