  1. Oh my, wow talk about taking it to the next level and beyond. Incredible can't wait to see it finished!
  2. Your shoulders are too far back. You should have more gap in the back move them forward so there isn't such a huge gap. But do that after you raise your back plate up and see where things land
  3. What is your height and weight that will help gice people a better idea how it will fit you.
  4. Veedox's inbox was full but I messaged him directly and he uncleared it and I was able to order from him. The seal was amazing! Sadly it was 1" too small but they took it back to modify, amazing support! Awaiting the repaired version...
  5. Hi I have two questions on weathering the scope and counter.<br><br> 1. The scope I've drilled out all the way thru and I'm awaiting lenses to add to it and then will be painting it. Spraying it brass then a black coat to wear. Should the black coat be flat black like the blaster or a semi gloss finish? I did the blaster grip and t-tracks in the semi gloss finish. <br><br> 2. I have a replica Hengstler counter on order from Blue Snaggletooth he's building it now. Its a black counter do I leave it finish as is? Or paint it flat black like the body of the blaster? <br><br> Thanks!<br> Christina
  6. I'm finding it impossible to find dark green lenses to replace the lens film in my helmet. Someone was selling them in ongoing sales but they don't have access to the acrylic sheets anymore to make them. So where are you getting your lenses? <br><br> Christina
  7. My helmet!! Its the one on the right! So excited looks absolutely amazing! Thanks Mark! You made me a happy girl!
  8. Padding will add a lot of heat and you'll sweat a lot with it. Try your armor without it proper strapping can eliminate or lessen padding.
  9. A photo is worth a thousand words. Post one and someone will be able to help you correct this. I'm 6'2" and mine fit right so unless you have a extra long torso it's likely a placement of parts issue. Standing by for photos.
  10. The back kidney plate is on upside-down the cutout notch goes down not up. <br><br> Beside to attach shims to both the kidney and the abdomen plates you'll need to mix abs paste to cover the seams. <br><br> You can cut a new notch on the kidney plate on the extended shim or leave one as is and extend forward above it.
  11. Looks great be sure to check out this build thread on the 2.0 armor. <br><br> <a data-ipb='nomediaparse' href='http://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/32531-navajo-bros-am-20-stunt-build/'>http://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/32531-navajo-bros-am-20-stunt-build/</a>
  12. Congratulations...I'd suggest you look up this AM 2.0 build thread and you should find all your answers to your questions... http://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/32531-navajo-bros-am-20-stunt-build/ Your kit comes with 2 ammo belts and 2 sets of covers, let me know if you want to sell one of them, cheers! Christina
  13. I used a heat gun on a low setting 450 and wave it back and forth a few inches away for approx 25-30 seconds. Then I use a drywall knife spatula as it is very firm thin metal I slip that under the piece and slip it into the warmed up e6000 and gently push and lift up on the piece comes apart real easy. Heat more as you go. Then just rub the left over glue residue off easier to do when it's warm.
  14. I just ordered a suit of Paul's armor, a ANH Hero TK in 1.5 ABS. Having seen several builds of his armor is really a work of art.
  15. Thats interesting...there is lots of screen heads that you could use in there and a small 3" screw driver will easily fit inside.
  16. E600 in contact with metal, (i.e. snaps in snap plates) can cause heat and It can cause melting in abs, more like it deforms the surface I have a few spots in my armor from the past owners putting glue on the metal part. I avoid any glue on the metal part by added a small 1/2" x 1/2" square of duct tape over the back of the snap so the metal is covered. Glue away, clamp, and wait 24 hours and you are good. The great thing is you can heat up pieces and separate them if they need adjustment or you messed up. A heat gun set at 450 degrees for about 20-30 seconds waving the heat back and forth over the piece softens it up enough to separate them I use a drywall putty knife to slip under the 2 pieces, its thin and pushes in and strong enough to lift the pieces apart. I bought a used TK suit 4 years old and had to redo all the strapping to fit me and all of it came off 4 years later cause the builder used e6000. As for dry time best to wait 24 hours, especially if it's high stress point like the inside of the shins.
  17. If you are a first time builder you should never use anything but e6000 cause you will make mistakes. It might not seem like a issue on snap plates and it can take a day to dry but until you've worn your armor out you don't know how those straps will hold up. They may be in a high stress position and that will make them pop off. <br><br> Its not a race, all the Anvos first time builders need to slow down.
  18. I know the desire and want to get it done fast but if it's your first build trust what everyone says you will mistakes. You might on see them till you go to get approval or later if you're interested in going for centurion. If you use anything but e6000 you'll be screwed trying to take pieces apart. <br><br> Don't rush it enjoy the build for what it is.
  19. Rivets are available here:<br><br> <a data-ipb='nomediaparse' href='http://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/34902-centurion-level-rivet-sets-for-sale/page-3#entry462977'>http://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/34902-centurion-level-rivet-sets-for-sale/page-3#entry462977</a>
  20. Ongoing sales...<br><br> <a data-ipb='nomediaparse' href='http://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/34902-centurion-level-rivet-sets-for-sale/page-3#entry462977'>http://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/34902-centurion-level-rivet-sets-for-sale/page-3#entry462977</a>
  21. How does one order one of these beautiful helmets? Do you sell them assembled and finished?
  22. Search Troopmaster on Facebook and you find his page. He has photos of his work there. Honestly it's so screen accurate it's amazing. He's a true master.
  23. Don't rush it, you'll make mistakes if it's your first build. 40 hours if it all goes smooth. Trouble is first builds have left turns all over the place. You'll get all your snaps and straps in place and try it on and have to redo connections to fit you better. <br><br> Do you have all the extra parts those can take a while to collect. Neck Seal, boots , belt, gloves, blaster, and holster.
