Trimming the nose shelf on a cowl.


Hey, guys. I have an Inferno cowl and it, of course, has a little nose shelf. I was wondering (and Mr. Justin might be able to give me some insight into this since he has one as well) if that nose shelf can be cut off the cowl so that I can breath better. If not, I'll make nostrils for it, but my nose doesn't go too far into the nose of the cowl so I would prefer to just take the nose shelf off all-together.

Re: Nose shelf


For my cowl nose shelves, I trim away a little where the shelf hits below my nose. Once I have it trimmed and shaped, I drill two small nostril holes. It might sound like a big undertaking, but it's very simple and quick...

Re: Nose shelf


You know, it's interesting, I was just looking at the cowl and thinking "you know, I could at least trim away this part here where it touches my face." :lol What do you use to trim it? Scissors?

I used the Batbrat method--CHAINSAW! :rollin

No, really--I used my Dremel. I set it to a low speed, and used a sanding drum. After that, you can smooth it further with some 220 grit sandpaper.

Re: Nose shelf


Now I really wish I had a dremel. Alas, I live in a dorm room. Thanks for the advice, though! You've been quite helpful.

Re: Nose shelf


I believe Brin would recommend cuticle scissors. I think those are the ones.

I have nothing to add to his statement except :whack :whack :whack

now.. my opinion....

trim it very carefully with sharp scissors or a dremel. I made the mistake of trying to "chew" through urethane with some dull scissors and it ended with a 2.5" rip along the bridge of the nose :eyes

Re: Nose shelf


Right now sharp scissors are looking like a good option. I'm going to have to go buy some cuticle scissors, me thinks.

Re: Nose shelf


Hey! Yeah, I've been putting off doing the exact same thing to mine as well. I'm probably just gonna trim it back with some scissors as well.
