  1. Good stuff. You can order the bucket & armor & ask them to ship the bucket first as they generally have those in stock. Last I saw the armor had about an 8 month wait list. That way you have something to work on in the meantime. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  2. Keep an eye out on your garrison forum for build parties. It will be worth a two hour drive to get a bit more confident in building.
  3. If this is you first time building I would strictly use E6000 glue as it is very forgiving but very strong.
  4. LOL. Are you being sarcastic? Seriously, I'm wanting deeper/more detailed traps and a bit larger. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  5. I currently have an ATA bucket for my TK and I love it but there are a couple of down sides. It is a bit on the small side and it is a very soft pull. I am looking for a bucket that has sharper details and closer to actual full size. Any suggestions?
  6. You'll love your NE kit when it's complete (that's what I have). The forearms are a pain but nothing insurmountable. Now the NE bucket, that's another story.
  7. Sounds like a different gauge plastic was used.
  8. I have asked before but did not get a response. I am wanting to change my user/forum name so it matches my 501st and Midsouth name, Rigel. How can I get this done? Thanks Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  9. I bought two large tubes just to be on the safe side. Gave what remained to the workshop along with a bunch of clamps, sandpaper, webbing & elastic. Helping future TKs. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  10. 501st is very active in Florida. You shouldn't have any problems with finding help on your build. Welcome! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  11. Love it! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  12. I have the BCG compression gear in both summer and winter weights. Price is great and they seem to be holding up well. TK2311, I always advise our local guys to go with a size smaller than you think you need to get that skin tight fit. We are fortunate here in Nashville to have a couple Academy Sports locally.
