[Revise]Q. What were the Ecto Goggles built out of?

A. They were originally military Night Vision goggles with different lenses. They are model: AN/PVS-5a.

[Revise]Q. How should I paint the welding goggles?

A. The cheap alternative many people chose to make Ecto Goggles are welding goggles you'd find at a hardware store. See Norm's Ecto Goggles plans in the Equipment section under plans. The problem is the plastic doesn't like to hold paint very well. Norm's plans say to finish the goggles with a Clear Dull Coat or a clear matte finish should be fine. This should eliminate the stickiness the goggles will have once painted the green you want them.

[Revise]Q. What color are the Ecto Goggles?

A. The goggles had long been thought to be black by some people but in both movies, they are in fact a deep military green color. See Reference Photos under the Equipment section for references.
