I cut out a piece of 0,5 mm stainless steel sheet for the cap.

Initially, I meant to just brush the stainless steel shiny.

I managed to lose another one of my helmets visor hinge caps.

Instead of buying new ones, I wanted to custom build one, and of cource, personalize my helmet in the process.

The cap in the picture is the left one I used for the model.

Some lipo repair work.

I had two 6-cell lipo batteries for my blaster. First one died completely and it turned out it had 2 dead cells. The other one worked but kept running out of juice way too early. After measuring the cells I discowered it had one cell that didn't hold capacity very well. It ran out while the other ones were still at 80% capacity.

I stripped the batteries, removed the 2 dead cells and combined the remaining best cells to one 6-cell battery. Covered it with black duct tape. :D 

The red bubblewrap contains the remaining good (and not so good, but working) cells which I plan to keep as spare parts.

If you attempt to repair lipos like this, always use tape and cover the contacts you are not soldering, and solder one at a time. I did so and even then sparks flew when the soldering iron slipped few times.
