    ANH STUNT BUILD

    I thought the other bucket was a TK peeking out over the sofa to see what was going on. Helmet is looking good. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    ANH STUNT BUILD

    Added some stickers and the S-trim. A little paint on the outside and mic tips. Inside screen, and headgear. I have a hard hat liner in my other bucket , I like it but would like to know what else I can get and where to get it. I’ve seen some nice looking padding. The liner that came with the kit is too small and it just bobbleheads on me. You may have noticed the bucket in the background. My granddaughter, 2yrs, loves to troop around the house with me.

    Ah, gotcha. And, yeah, the vac-formed pieces are considerably thinner -- depending on where they came from on the armor, they can be quite thin, but still nice and strong. One tip, though, that I found out the hard way. I wish I hadn't attached both sides of that hinge when I did. I still had snaps and straps to do for the torso (Ab, Butt, Kidney, Back, Shoulder straps...), and doing them AFTER attaching the two halves of the "clamshell" has been a pain. Wish I had attached only one side, and drilled the other side to get it ready but not actually attach it till later. Would have been a lot easier finishing all the snaps and straps without that clamshell flopping all over the place. Live and learn.

    Lovely to have more detail, thanks A.J.! I was planning on reinforcing the ab before attaching elastic similar to yours, so the third layer would be between the elastic and the ab/kidney, glued only to the ab/kidney. I'm contemplating slimmer reinforcements (nylon webbing? ABS scraps that came from already vac-formed pieces so they're considerably thinner?) to avoid it being a full 6mm of ABS, but I'd worry about the rivet holes sans backup. Ounce of prevention, etc.

    Three layers of ABS for your hinge? What/where is the third layer? You'd mentioned that you liked my hinge closure, but I only have two total ABS layers the rivets have to go through on each side of the armor seam, plus one layer of webbing. Those two ABS strips are glued directly to the top of the webbing only, and the webbing is plain on the underside. The hinge, in turn, is riveted webbing-side-down to the armor, one strip on each side of the armor seam. Here's a closeup of the attached hinge, and you can see that I had plenty of rivet to bend over. Hope this helps.

    Just got it today so haven´t really tested it, no problem putting on/off with just the glove but I can see some training is requried when in full armor. Glove can´t be too thight to begin with though so I checked that before ordering And I got some lines pre-installed but the great thing is that you can change them out as you like just plugging it in to the computer.....obviosly I have no idea HOW to do it but there´s a manual included so should be able to figure it out...eventually

    Sick!! Always wondered, how are those under the gloves? Tedious to get on/off? Bulky?
  16. Well eventually I'll really honestly get it straightened out. Sent from my 5054N using Tapatalk

    Heavens to Betsy, Frank you're right - even if by some miracle they do let me in, they'll send me a certificate that says "Laura" on it and I'll have to hang it on my wall and wince every time I see it. Oh phew. Thanks!

    I DO remember and not to worry, all is well and if you think about it it´s all Rat´s fault, I have tried to aducate him but when it comes to my name...well...HE is but the learner and I am the Master (not to worry Rat, I still like you just as much)

    Shoot!!! And I thought about it, and I looked at your profile (and I called you Daniel yesterday, if you recall), and then I figured Hey, Rat probably knows better than I do. Dreadfully sorry, I mean I hate it when people shorten my name without being instructed to do so. Ugh.

    Well my friends, I would like it if you would refer to me as Daniel or Danny even, Dan is some other dude aka @CableGuy

    Fine, I have balanced the sane advice with Daniel's advice - quickly recoated my bucket with plastidip, and will now lie very, very still. And thanks, Tony! PM sent. Turns out the rivets only have to go through 3 layers of ABS plus one of elastic, so if I can do the initial closure plan I'd like to.
