I wanted my surfing helmet to be a little more identifiable. a little more.... disco.
This is a Gath helmet covered with mirrored acrylic squares 1/4"x1/4" cut on a laser cutter. Glued with some glue that works really well It is clear and flexible. i think it is a urethane glue.
Step 1: Start With Your Helmet of Choice
in my case an XXL Gath surf helmet.
Step 2: Cut Lots of Mirrored Pieces.
best not to use glass, it's sharp.
so i used mirrored acrylic.
1/4inch pieces square are great, but i guess you can use any mosaic pattern you wish.
Step 3: Glue Them On
i used this clear adhesive. waterproof, seems to have worked well.
a year of use and i've only lost a handful of mirrors.
Step 4: Let It Dry, Wear It,
ride with it!
