  1. You can really see the shine in the second pic- looks great! I used JB water weld on my areas that needed filling. So far zero cracking!
  2. Trooperbays are not approvable. Too many white fingers .
  3. Looking good! I had my suspenders like yours at first, but if you flip them around, you may find the ab piece much easier to slip into.
  4. This is an awesome idea which really looks great! I will be taking this same route. Mine just came in. Appreciate the post!
  5. Gaskets for sure will be needed prior to sizing and cutting. Good luck and keep us posted!
  6. PM sent Peter regarding 5/28 order status- thanks!
  7. If you can drill a hole in the neck, sink a pipe or tube in it, glue it, then mount a styrofoam ball or block onto it. You can shape the styrofoam to whatever size you need.
  8. Looking great! Be sure to do any slight bending of the shim before you do the filler. This is needed so the kidney piece does not flare out away from the ab when finished.
  9. Paint looks great! I'm at the same stage I know what you mean about seeing the imperfections only after a coat of paint. Last week has been a constant -paint-see imperfection-sand-paint again pattern. I'm finally down to my last piece.
  10. Sorry to hear that! Appreciate the heads up. I was about to start painting but it's 60 degrees this morning. Will wait till midday when we hit over 70.
  11. That is some crotch shot! Awesome quality pics Bob- few more pics to add and you will be looking great! Armor looks fantastic.
  12. This is awesome - keep the pics coming! Appreciate the posts, they are a huge help. I'm in the middle of cutting and shaping right now.
  13. Hey everyone; the cutting of the chest vent was quite an experience (I have a Jimmi kit). I have seen there are replacement vent pieces mostly pre-cut that some of you have which would be a huge help for anyone scared to tackle the vent cutting on their own. Could anyone please share the info where these are available? Appreciate any info!
  14. Congrats Jack on the first of many! Great meeting and trooping with you guys, hope to do it again soon. Thanks for posting the pics!
  15. Felt it a good time to jump in here; not related to the seams, but it is related to the CRL. As I start to build my kit, if I go cloth gaskets, will that pass the 'rubber or shiny black material' criteria? Not sure how shiny cloth gaskets are looking for everyone. Happy to go rubber if that is what it takes for approval, but dont want to have to buy two sets. Thanks guys.
  16. This /\ /\ /\ /\ Great advice. Learned the hard way walking around a couple of con's with the family. They are not happy when you spend you entire time getting stopped for pics while you are supposed to be walking around together shopping! I change now when the fam arrives and hold the cameras and phones.
  17. Hey Everett it's Scott- glad to see you getting the build going! Looking great, give us a shout if you need anything, we are close by!
  18. Awesome job, looks great! That's funny about the Rt. shin being mentioned. We did the Weird Al troop last night and I thought my Rt shin was twisting up on me! I cut the bottom notch down more (around the foot) and added some small velcro to help stop it, but it may have been just me.
  19. Do the biceps wobble when you are standing with your arms down? It looks like they could tilt outward some- I agree the strapping should fix it. Also under the belt where it overlaps, you might need to add more velcro. You can see tape or something not covered. One bottom rivet is a bit off on the kid/ab connection, but it will be covered. Good luck, I see another Cent. added to the ranks!
  20. Some good info- http://www.tk409.com/tk409.html
