NCR Helmet Assembly Guide
Hi and Welcome to the assembly guide for my NCR Ranger Helmet version 2 kit.
Helmet kit can be purchased here
Each helmet kit will come with the following:
Spot light cast
main light lens cast
Chrome mirror red lens and mounting bolt
Real gas mask hose
Two Hose attachments
This guide will take you step by step on how to assemble the complete kit.
Helmet lens and ear cap vent cut out:
For this you will need and 1/8″ drill bit and a Power drill. I have colored in the area that will be cut as a guide on here.
Drill multiple holes outlining the area to be cut, making sure to not to drill into the inner frame, after you have done this you will notice a mark that is in between the lenses. This is the mounting hole to bolt the visor into place. Drill where marked on the helmet as indicated by the arrow.
I used a drywall cutting bit to cut out the rest of the lens while following the holes that were previously drilled.
Here I used a 1/2 inch 60 grit drum bit to even it out. I also go back with a file to sharpen the edges and level them out.
Use the same process to cut out the vents on the ear cap.
Lens fitting and install-
The red lens comes pre-cut with the mounting hardware for ease of assembly
Use the pre-drilled hole in the helmet to insert the screw and use the nut and washer to tighten on the inside.
The neck ring can be left as is or trimmed out to allow for a bigger opening if needed. I used the same 1/2 inch sanding drum on my dremel to trim it.
The Filter canister will come in three pieces: Main body ring, top detail and bottom plate. Some sanding and trimming of flashing will be needed. All pieces get glued together and the bottom will need a small screw to mount it to the helmet. An optional screen material is included to back the top plate as shown.
Mount the canister with a screw fed from inside the helmet.
Gas mask hose:
The gas mask hose comes with two connectors to mount to the front and the back of the helmet if you so choose. The hose gets clipped just above the first hose ring and the connector screwed on. The connectors will hold through pressure and does not need to be glued.
Last two pieces are the main lens of the combox and the pin light box . Both pieces get glued on to the front and side as shown.
From this point you will just need to paint and pad the helmet.
