First set back of the build..... With my confidence running high I started on my left upper armor piece. I trimmed a little off each side to get it closer to fitting me, however i found that it is really tight, not in length but in width. When I look a the two halves its more of an oval than a circle. I've used a heat gun sparingly to help widen the gap a little for my "massive" biceps and its fitting better, but not there yet. I taped it back together and found a few questions had come up. It feels almost like its too long for my arm, its easily up into my armpit and just under the ball in my shoulder on the outside. Any lower and I have problems bending my elbow.
So my first question to the experts is does it look like its too long or is that really sitting about where it should be? It also seams like its still a little too wide and needs to be trimmed in a little more to me...
Second question is about the return edge. I haven't been able to find a definitive yes or no as to where I should have these edges. If I have to shorten the length any I will lose that edge, and not entirely sure how to put one back on if its even possible. However trimming it off would greatly help fitting the my armor easier without needing to try and bend it any further, and stop eating up my arm while I play dress up with the parts.
The lip isnt very big just not sure if it needs to stay or I can hack it out of there.
