Soooooo today my Goggles and PKE Meter arrived. I immediately tore down the Goggles. They Looked like this:

I will say they are a good base, so lets break some sh*t.

At that point I had removed the back rubber and plastic shield. I am going to reuse both of these pieces. I am going to glue the rubber onto the plastic so its one piece. I am then going to use velcro on both sides to attach that to the goggles so I can easily get into the back of them to work on them.

This was just test fitting the 3D printed eye pieces and they fit perfect.

If you are a purest I would turn back now. I took ALOT of liberties and will take ALOT more as I go along.





OK. If you are still here, lets get started. I started crafting my light harness for my uhhhhhh additional lights. I will be adding more but need to order them. what I have so far is this:

So what is that? So far it is 5x 3mm UV leds. Why 5? Because I had 5 and they were taking up space. I also like UV and they don't put off a ton of light. That green led puts out a Buttload of light. I also have 2x 3mm red flashing leds. I have not figured out where I am going to put these, but I am kind of brainstorming that currently. I also want to add 2x 3mm yellow leds with the flashing red, kinda to signify "powered up and ready." Speaking of power, I have these wired to a 9volt battery with its own separate switch so that the one green led is powered by the stock AA batteries it came with. I did this for two reasons. 1. If I want to run just that one I can. 2. The wiring and such was fine for what it was, so why touch it. 3. I like the look of the UV and Power stuff on power up, then when im "hunting ghosts" I can turn the knob on the side and turn the super bright green lens on kinda like an extra magnification.(it makes sense to me)
Image

This is a test fit of the UV leds and where they will eventually be stuff in place. I think once I paint the lenses black and chrome it will look alot better.

I plan to paint the main goggle fixture flat black and then add some weathering. I just need to find a day when it is not raining. Paint is what is holding me up right now with this and my proton pack build. When I start working again I will get some more pics.

IM AN IDIOT. I had in my head to thank WindDrake for the printed pieces he graciously put up the plans for and forgot.
