    I've seen some spray the metallic and then hit it with clear. I bet that helps a ton with fingerprints and durability.

    • AlexPlusLEDS

      There is a silver nitrate spray that can leave a very good and shiny finish with a top coat. The common stuff that comes in can needs to have air in contact with the paint surface to look shiny.

    This is electrolytic nickel without a flash of chrome

    • koolcamdaman
      koolcamdaman 9 months ago

      I thought it might be nicke plating because Nickel has a slight gold tint to it. I work with parts that are nickel plated with a chrome flash to give them a bright silver color, but I work with industrial parts. If they dont put thin chrome flash on the part it will look like a little more goldish because it is just nickel. I’m less familiar with silvering process.

    • AlexPlusLEDS
      AlexPlusLEDS 9 months ago

      I don't think it's plated, it a silver-nitrate process. Too light to be actually metal plated. Very very thin coat.

    $450 just for that type of mask what a rip off it looks like $25

    • Wcg3
      Wcg3 9 months ago

      @AlexPlusLEDS tbh why would anyone buy a daft punk helmet I mean its cool don't get me wrong but if your getting the mask you don't know if its a rip or not cause my cousin bought a daft punk helmet on amazon the Thomas helmet then when the mask was delivered to him in 1 week the led stopped working then the mask started to have a weird ass smell to it and if their is a decent mask in ebay (cause amazon has no shit for daft punk) its about 1k or 2k dollars I would just make my own daft punk helmet

    • AlexPlusLEDS
      AlexPlusLEDS 9 months ago

      Would've been decently priced, IF the chrome wasn't completely screwed up.

  • Albert Odarströmer

    I only have one question and that is if this LED matrix fit inside brunoostis Thomas helmet? I really need to know since i’m planning on making the full discovery verision of Thomas helmet with all the LEDs inside and i might just buy this if it fits. :-)

    • Albert Odarströmer
      Albert Odarströmer 10 months ago

      @AlexPlusLEDS Ok thanks for the reply.

    • AlexPlusLEDS
      AlexPlusLEDS 10 months ago

      I think it should! The matrix measures 8 x 2", most helmets have enough room to mount it.

    How well can you see through the display while wearing the helmet?

    • AlexPlusLEDS
      AlexPlusLEDS Year ago

      The visibility depends on the animation and the brightness of the enviroment. If the brightest animation is selected in a dark room, it is hard to see. If a medium brightness animation is selected in a well lit room, no problem.

  • Alex Stryker
    Alex Stryker Year ago

    Unfortunately this happens a lot. Really I believe the only way to be satisfied with something that expensive would be to simply make it yourself. I’m looking into making one myself. It’s cheaper than $450. That’s unfortunate of the bronze tint though. 😞

  • Spenser Melchor

    In this video you use actual red leds as opposed to your tutorial video where you used clear red leds which do you recommend?

      The diffused red ones work a lot better.

  • Spenser Melchor

    do you have a video up on how to mount the ear pucks into the helmet itself?

  • DXR gaming

    I feel sorry for you. The person who made it didn't fill and sand paper the gaps which would massively increase how good it's other than the colour.

      AlexPlusLEDS my first ever attempt came out really well when I did it with my base coat, but you know whatever works right?

    • AlexPlusLEDS
      AlexPlusLEDS Year ago

      DXR gaming I've never been lucky with silver sprsypaint. I just send them out and get them made perfect.

    • DXR gaming
      DXR gaming Year ago

      AlexPlusLEDS I know. Still though if you're as obssesed with accuracy as I am, it would really bug me. I'm planning on making another one in a few months, with this one I'm hoping to spray an under coat on it then go for metallic silver or something because with my last one I got loads of finger prints on it. I'm hoping the silver won't be as bad.

    • AlexPlusLEDS

      DXR gaming don't be! It all worked out in the end for me.

      Check radioshack, if you still have one in your area.

  • geman220
    geman220 Year ago

    A really helpful video, especially when coupled with your step by step guide. If I had one suggestion, I'd say that maybe the next time you happen to build a matrix, update your step by step guide with some of the new processes/materials you are using in this video. For example, in this video, you are connecting each column to the next column via the leads from the LED instead of connecting them by a wire. I imagine that saves a fairly significant amount of time on the project (as well as providing a bit better connection points) since you don't have to prep the wire to connect each column. Also, some really simple tips like what solder tip you use (pointed / flat etc) and what temperature you use, as well as any "time saving" soldering tips. Your videos are extremely detailed and helpful already, but you can never have enough details.

  • METHOD ONE

    450 dollars!!!!!.....and instead of sending it back and getting refunded, you're gonna pay to have it chromed too!?! There are plenty of plain white ones you can buy and get chromed . Seems a shame to lose that amount of money on the first purchase.

    • AlexPlusLEDS

      METHOD ONE I agree, but the guy doesn't seem to want to refund anyone. If you find the seller, check the feedback. I ended up making my money back, so not a total loss :)

    Can you see through the helmet when the LEDs are on?
