  1. and again the largeness of KB’s armor strikes. My armor posterior is huge. At least it’s centered..... look good?
  2. You’re. Onto something there. Looks like it has some adjustment to keep it centered somehow. Does the belt keep it centered? Also @TheSwede what do you mean by little lip? I just bought like 80 snaps from the fabric store. There was a sale
  3. I only have a strip on each side mounting the zipper closure. Yours looks difficult to remove. Todays work wasn’t a waste. I modified my thigh straps to snap onto my belt. Tomorrow my wife will help me sew extra canvas into my back closure and then I’ll carefully measure and add snaps.
  4. I think I’m going to modify my zipper closure to have two large tabs like you did.
  5. Run into a snag with my butt plate mounting. I have my zipper closure and then the butt plate gets clipped into the bottom of the armor with snaps but I don’t have any way of easily putting it on without someone shoving their hand inside my back. I probably should have done magnets Other options? I knewI should have looked at ukswraths thread. Duh just add wings to the back closure...
  6. i need to adjust the leg straps to even them out and adjust the gasket so I can move the thighs up slightly back still seem huge. I think I also need to add shims to the side wings so I can connect the chest plate to the upper back plate. Currently they do not really come close because I think o trimmed them too short and again too soon
  7. now to size up the suspenders and I’ll have a FOTK set of pants
  8. im going to redo the leg strapping to use snaps to snap onto my belt. Right now I have to shove Velcro into the leg and it’s not coming out even. Also I will order suspenders to hold up the abdomen. Until then I can’t proceed on any other part. I’m happy with the cod
  9. I’m going to need to use suspenders to hold up my abdomen barrel. Snaps on the belt don’t work and I can’t dial in the way the abdomen falls. Working on the butt plate now.
  10. I forgot a washer on that one in the top left. Oh well. straight as its going to get.
  11. my wife helped me make a back closure. I liked how Kevin Weir did it for his shoretrooper Kit I had so I did the same for my FOTK. I’ll dial it in and then add the butt plate and magnets for the TD
  12. I’m going to have to super bribe the wife to do it
  13. cod mounting cut outs. Forgot to get 2” elastic so I’ll get more tomorrow as well as fabric to make my back closure. I can’t do magnets because I prefer a zipper and I always have help. I wish I had taken pictures of my shoretrooper I did and I liked the back closure KW sent along with it. Pretty sure he used canvas. Ill also add a few snaps for the belt tomorrow and continue working my way up. Need to settle on how to mount knee plates.
  14. Photos make the armor look so much better.... also I forgot what it felt like to wear a snow suit. I feel like I’m ready to go out and plan in the snow. Rubber gaskets must be worse.
