As the title indicates I am working on ATA armor and I have the shins nearly finished. I am test fitting them now and they close well and can be held closed with tape. But I am nervous because they are in constant compression when closed that I will have problems with them comining apart when walking or inconveniently in the middle of a troop. What can I do to fix this?
I have seen some builders use boiling water but I have seen good and terrible things happen because of it.
Any help is appreciated. Thanks
