I currently have bubble lenses on my helmet and it is hard to see and I know if I got some flat lenses I could see better and my helmet would look better too, so I would be greatful if someone could tell me where I could get flat lenses and I would like to have the smoke lenses and not green, thanks :deathstar2:

I would like lenses like that too, however they are hard to come by, unless you want to pay through the nose, I have found. I've just been buying safety glasses or larger sunglasses then cutting them apart to fit my TIE helmet.

You can buy some acrylic polycarbonate and cut it yourself. I think i might even have some extra. I make all my flat lenses

Are flat TIE lenses not the same as flat Stormie lenses? I have put one together yet, so I haven't tried to figure it out before.

On my Scout helmet I used a replacement visor for a welding helmet, it was only about $7. True it is a very Dark green so when you look out everything you see has a tint of green, but from the outside the color is so dark that it actually looks black, can't even tell that it's green.

I bought some only from a website and added them to my tie helmet. They seem to be good. A lot better then my bubble lenses on my TK. Since these new lenses for my Tie are so nice, I might buy some more and add them to my TK.
