I've converted several of the SBS Black Geckos to use a visor by simply adding studs over the marked spots.

Even made up a jig that fits in my vice to act as an anvil behind the part of the stud that goes inside the helmet.

I still have some spare studs etc if anyone wants me to convert theirs.

Cheers.

Took a while as I hand cut them with a scalpel.

The font matches the name graphics I also hand cut to go on the side of the RIB Console.

It's called 7 year Vinyl.

It comes in loads of colours and can normally be picked up really cheap as end of rolls etc from sign makers.

I have some White and Black that came out of a skip outside a sign makers as their waste so it was very cheap
