help:how do u curve / mold silver mirrors lens

Recommended Posts

Well, how i would usually do this is to boil the lenses, just for a very brief time, and then reshape, hold, and let cool. Since these are mirrored, which i assume is a film on the lense, that might not be the best idea. It could ruin the film causing it to crease. I would say itdepends how much you need to bend them.

I've seen some manufacture a clip to hold the lense in place, but it is ok to have a gap. If you can have the gap on the bottom of the lens it won't be seen and it will also allow air flow. There are quite a few buckets out there with slight gaps around the lenses though.

I have the large AFX mirror lens for my bucket. I drilled 2 holes (one on each side of the lens) then glued in a piece of 5mm abs on each side of the helmet. The pieces have a small hole that corresponds with the lens. The lens wraps from side to side across the front and secure with screws. Works like a charm.
