Daft Punk

After many months of working on this project I finally finished. It took forever and I got about 2.5 hours of full use out of it. I wore this as I checked ID’s at the bar I worked at.

As the drunken crowd of people continued to slap the helmet (out of excitement that they thought I was RoboCop) they screwed up some of the electronics, and due to the wonderful weather of Jacksonville that doesn’t like jackets….I had to take it off, but I’m proud that I actually finished it.

This was started with Pepakura, fiberglassed and then bondo. I used a chrome spray paint, but I suggest to try something else because it didn’t hold up at all.

I disappeared

Well ever since TSI has been shutdown I have had very little to write about. Life just isn’t as interesting when you have a constant feed of drunk individuals spilling their guts to you. So, now I’m in lull waiting for TSI to reopen.

In better news. I am all graduated and now I start to prepare for the MBA program, if I ever get my booty to the GMAT.

Yes, I know it was weak post, but it had been awhile so I am getting back into the groove.
