Got a good deal I couldn't pass up on an old FX TK, and thanks to this very helpful FX conversion thread:
http://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/12478-howto-easily-make-your-fx-armor-eib-acceptable/ , I've been able to put in a few dollars and a few minutes here and there to make this a decent looking TK.

And the story so far...
First things first, out with that atrocious bobble head bucket! Went for Elumusic's newly created BX helmets (his work found here- http://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/28271-bx-built-stormtrooper-helmets-finished-and-kits/ )
Swapping out the big black ab buttons for a set of VaderDave's
Plastic -> Canvas belt
That was easy...
I also brought up the gap of the drop boxes to nearly nothing (with correct white elastic strapping), installed metal clips for the thermal detonator, and am working on installing an old fan/mic kit I've had for a while...
