My name is Jason Bogue, most of my friends call me Bogue. I am in need of some advice for repairing an old beat up suit of Stormtrooper armor.
I am the 3rd owner of this particular suit of armor. The 1st owner was a 501st member, owner number 2 was not, & I believe the damage came from owner #2.
The armor photographs fairly well, but when you get up close you see the damage. Someone (not me I know better) tried using Superglue on the armor and where they did so is where the damage is at.
Is there any way to repair these spots? I'm not sure if Bondo will work in some spots due to the need for the armor to flex. Is there anything else I might be able to use?
If not I imagine I can convert the armor to a sandy & blend the damage in with the weathering, but I'd kind of like to have a shiny TK. If not no worries.
I am a fairly handy guy, so if it is possible to do the repair work I'm sure I can.
I will try to post photos of the damaged spots in the next day or 2 so you can see exactly what I'm talking about.
Thanks for any feedback
