You can get more details about this build HERE.
Step 1 – Marking It Out.
“I magic marketed the face and cut the details out using my drill, 10mm bit and angle grinder with 1.2mm blade…I used a few of these!!
The plan was to cut the bottom off and use the lower section of the cylinder for the hood of the helmet.”
Step 2 – Mouth Detailing
“I welded two bolts into the corner of the triangle to add styling.”
Step 3 – The Hinge.
“I always fit the hinge before cutting the door so I know it’ll always hang straight.
Mark out using a marker pen, drill 3mm hole and tap using a 4mm tapping wrench. The hinge is fitted with 4mm x 10mm machine screws.”
Step 4 – The Bridges.
“One the bridge of the nose I welded a tube which I had split and cut creating more detailing.”
Step 5 – Thermal Exhaust Ports.
“I was running low on scrap buys of metal and with school out for the summer I had to improvise.
My first design used 3 scaffolding tubes welded together but I thought is sucked so ended up cutting them off and going with a 6 tier exhaust which I’m much happier with.”
Step 6 – Weld And Grind.
“The eyebrow pieces, Cheek detailing and handle are made from the left over cylinder. I also used a large section of the cylinder to create vaders hood.
Once welded I used a flap wheel fitted to my grinder to smooth all rough edges and strip the paint.”
Step 7 – Daddy Vader.
“At the side of a regular sized gas bottle you can see the big vader towers over my previous design.
The original is a 13 or 15kg gas bottle, the big one I think was a 46kg.”
Step 8 – Burn Vader Burn.
“Before painting with UHT paint I decided to give is a test burn, this will also burn off any of the remaining original paint.”
Step 9 – Matt Black.
“I gave vader 2 coats of UHT black paint and it’s good to go.”
