  12. Here is what I’m using, spray can. https://www.homedepot.com/p/BEHR-PREMIUM-12-oz-52-White-Gloss-Interior-Exterior-Spray-Paint-and-Primer-in-One-Aerosol-B001944/310275621
  13. Once I get my leg gaskets sized properly I plan to size the leg armor to fit me. Right now the overlapped inners on the thighs and shins are not glued.
  14. Time to tackle the belt build. Started by printing the belt box template sheet. CAUTION: Even though the template is 1:1, the boxes printed on the sheet are too small, and some of the center holes are not centered. You can see the pencil lines I drew on the template: Next I put the belt on the torso, with the spine and butt plate attached, in order to size the belt. It’s way too big for me: So I marked the proper size and started to unstitch the Velcro and strapping from the back of the rubber. Then I used some clips to mock-up the size. The top piece is the rubber belt, the bottom piece is the Velcro: Then I cut the Velcro and strapping and then used some E6000 the reattach the strapping at the proper sizing: Then I cut the rubber to the end of the male clip. This shows how much I cut off of each: Then glued a short piece over the female clip: Then using the templates I marked the holes and used my leather hole punch to make the holes: This is assembled, but I haven’t painted these resin boxes yet: On the armor: Bought a replacement for the large pouch from Trooperbay today, since the DN large pouch is too small for the ABS front panel. Someone in my garrison mentioned that he couldn’t move his head in the armor with the helmet on, so I did a test: Looks like I’ll be good.
  15. I think it will since I used the heat gun to bend the tips and the Velcro isn’t really doing much except holding in place.
