  1. I was steaypainting my TLJ bucket. I was doing nothing out of the ordinary. But in the outcome, it the surface was fuzzy with a sandpaper texture. The surface was smooth. What causes this? Also, what is the most easiest way to strip paint from a resin fiberglass bucket? I'm sanding but it's a major pain and unsure how I'm going to get into all the nooks and crannies. Any help would be appreciated.
  2. Other than what is listed in the resource page, does any one know of any more resources for TK thigh holsters? Thanks!
  3. Dose anyone know of any blueprints for TFA/TLJ TK holster that I can possibly obtain? Unsure if I want to cut my own, 3D print, or buy depending on the difficulty of it. Thanks!
  4. I just received my TFA undersuit. When I tried it on, some of the rubber by the zipper cracked and is starting to separate and peel from the fabric. Is there any fix I can do to prevent further damage?
  5. Are you having issues with the right spat? mine is a KB and I trimmed at the end creases and its not seeming to line up.
  6. Quick question before I begin my TFA build. I am kicking around on using rare earth magnets instead of velcro for like the clamshell in the shins, spats, and possibly the forearms. Has anyone used magnets in such a way? Thanks!
  7. The price is truly sepctacular. But here is my concern. I have the height of a "mesomorph" (height at 6 ft) but the girth of an "endomorph" (waist size of 36) and I am stuck on really what to do. Don't want to commit and realize I have to do more shimming and adjusting then what its worth.
  8. Hello fellow TK's I am currently helping a Cadet in Garrison Carida complete his armor. He proposed a challenge and would like to do a TK from the Unit Aurek-Seven from the Fools Bargain novel. Prob is, no actual CRL's exist for the Unit Aurek-Seven and the only pic I found was on wookiepeedia http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Unit_Aurek-Seven . Other than the given pic, any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
  9. Hey there Keith! My rivits measurements are as follows, one inch in from the edge of the ab plate, measuring from the bottom 2 inches up, split rivit, 2 and a half inches, split rivit, nother 2 and a half inch, split rivit. That left me with about one inch to spare. This is according to ATA armor.
  10. thank you. I'm sorry that I got a bit hyped there a few posts ago. I'm very self contious about myself. Something that I'm working through. I shall serve the FISD with diligence and honor. Thank you again.
  11. Corrections that needed to be made: Boots, They just got naturally scruffed after my first troop in them on saturday when the pics were taken. Some up close shots. Belt, Dremelled a 45 degree angel in the corners.
  12. I understand. I just don't want my size to be a deciding factor. I had the same prob with my old FX armor with the legs. My height is in my legs. I have to order from "big and tall" magazines to get pants in my size. unless there is an armorer that will custom mold to my size, I'm out of luck. I will take pictures of my boots and ab belt submit them.
  13. So let me get this straight, the boots are an easy fix. Secondly, I went by the CRL's and I am getting counted against something that is not in the CRL's. Lastly, I'm being counted against because I am tall and large, especially in the legs? If so I take GREAT offense to that. I cut and sized my leg armor to fit me to the best of my abilities. If my height and weight is an issue , than that's pretty discriminatory. I would like to get a second opinion that would exclude body size.
