  4. Made my boxes. The lid didn't want to fit over the box, so I had to dip the whole top half in boiling water for about 20-30 seconds. I did the hot water bath after I screwed the lid on so that I could immediately force the lid on before it cooled. Worked well. I then painted the gold screws white to match the box.

  5. Used a tape measure to space the small boxes out as evenly as I could. Bolted them on from the inside. Also used velcro to attach front and back belt pieces. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk

  7. Continued with the strapping this evening. Went with black, wide elastic to attach kidney to butt plate, and used snaps for chest/abdomen plates. Also attached soft velcro to chest plate. Once straps on back plate are permanently glued, I will measure and adjust accordingly. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk

  9. I appreciate that! Thank you. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  10. Gonna attempt the strapping. Also added a bit more plastic to the shoulder bridges so that they really catch the chest plate. Otherwise there will be a huge gap between the two, requiring a YUUUGE glob of glue. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  11. Ok, most of it is trimmed and sanded and put together, except for the belt. Tried it on. Looks ok, I guess! Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  12. Forgot to take progress pics, except for these here. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  13. Had help with the sizing of my calves. Was advised to make wider finishing strips, so we measured and I cut 2 strips, 1 3/4 inches wide. Because the calf is so curvy on this kit, I dipped the finishing strips in boiling water and shaped them into a loose "S" shape. That worked beautifully. Was able to glue them on with little effort. Oh, and I got to meet this cute pup named Winnie. She didn't like me at first, but she accepted me eventually.
  14. Problem!!!!! The lower leg pieces are too slim for my big legs. Crikey!!!!! Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  15. I scored and snapped the edges of the front part of the thigh. I removed only the curved edge on the back part of the thigh and left the extra ABS and used it as a finishing strip. My mind went blank for a moment and I accidentally removed the extra part on one side. So, I used the extra lip on the back thigh piece as a finishing strip, and used an actual strip on the part I accidentally cut off. Glued, and set for 24 hrs. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
