Thanks again Drew for your quick reply! I hadn't heard of M1 but deduced through some googling that it might refer to the flame retardantness of a fabric? Which ... I mean, I'm going to play hard in this costume but I don't know if I'm going to play THAT hard! :D

I'm fortunate to have quite a few sources for fabric near my home so hope to have a winner picked soon. It seems like the color to shoot for is "gray so dark you think it might be black until you see it next to actual black and realize, 'oh no that's definitely gray.'" Does that sound about right?

This is the comm pad, which to my eye matches the photos I took of the suit in Orlando. I can figure out the lenses, I just had it in mind the lenses matched a known gunner helmet part or TIE pilot part or something but I think I could have been thinking of something else

That's pretty much it. (Severely) faded black could even work but, from every reference I've seen, it's not black.

Can you get a measurement of the outside diameter of the posts the caps fit on? I might be able to find something.

Sure! The outside is 5/8" or 16mm (inside is 7/16" or 11mm)

I might have a bead on the part number. I'm not 100% sure but I think the part for the red lens comes off of EAO 51-933.2. The part is listed as being 15.8mm in diameter. I'm not sure if that means the drill hole or the outer diameter of the cap. I did find another spec that lists it at 18mm. If both are true, then the outer diameter of the lens should be 18mm and the inner diameter close to 16mm. The blue cap has a part number of 51-933.6.

Again, not entirely sure. I might order some just to do comparisons against the ones we use on the commbox. If anything, I can use them for my custom power droid.

Wow, that seems super close! I can find online where they're just a couple bucks to order. This may be a super stupid question, but just confirming, I would need transparent blue and transparent red, instead of blue and red, correct?

Translucent red and blue. But, yeah, that's all they sell :)

I'm just not sure if those exact parts are going to be spot on or just a bit too small.
