  1. I am so glad that I was pointed to this thread. I had to go back and look over my helmet and make sure is was within the new regs and I’m pretty sure it is. I’m going to need to print these new crl changes up and include them with my Anovos kit instructions. This was I can refer to them while doing my build. It looked like I will have to know off the piece I added for the 5button strip and add it to the top portion so that my 5 button strip will be at the proper proportion with the middle button plate.

  3. Since there is a skin for the TKC in Battlefront 2 that has the accessories of the black pauldron and the heavy back pack, can those be worn with the current TKC or would a BF2 version have to be written? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Where did you get your bin from? I like the design. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I have had these done just after my last post. So here are my two TD/O2 canisters. Now I just need to make up a couple of the clips so that I will be able to use both of them depending on the situation. The one in the left is the one I got from CFO that is the centurion level and the right is the Anovos. I have got some scrap aluminum and soon should have these ready to be weathered.

  6. That’s not a problem that you weren’t able to make it. Where are you located so that I may take you up on that offer? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. So we here in the NorthBay Squad of the Golden Gate Garrison had an armor party back on the 4th of Aug and I was able to get some work done on my TKC. This was my first 501st armor party and it was a pretty laid back experience. My armor wasn’t as far along as one of the others at the party but I was able to ask questions as I cut out my pieces. I was able to get about 95% of my armor cut out and the rest I have cut out since then at home. Here are some of my resent pictures of my progress New gloves Now from my last post I reported that the Anovos gloves ripped on me. So I went to Amazon and found a pair of black chemical resistant black glove. These gloves have a nice heft to them and feel more durable then the originals. As pictured I tried Flex Glue as a way to adhere my rubber backhands to my gloves. Well it was a total success!!! Only time will tell on how durable it is but it stuck as claimed. So for those looking to glue any rubber or latex back hands to their rubber gloves rubber infused CA glue and Flex Glue work. So during the armor party I was able to get all but 4 parts cut out. I’m thankful for Craig Gaylord’s help with how and where to cut my Anovos armor. Also a big shout out goes to Keith Waechtler who was helping everyone who needed it. Also he learned to use an electric orbital sander, which he has never before ever used in his life. Here is my Ab section. As you can see I had to add a section under where the button row goes. Since the TKC has 5 button and not 4 like a standard TK, the custom buttons I made wouldn’t fit properly. Also as you can see I put the center button section on in the reverse. Omg there are two of them... my TD’s. Thanks to Sskunky when I purchased the proper RotJ TD/O2 canister panel he included some extra pieces. So with these extra pieces I was able to build 2 TD’s. I just have to make the clips for the second one and I will have two...just in case. These are the newest updates to me build. My next task is to start sanding and getting rid of the return edges that aren’t suppose to be there. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I will try that, thanks. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. It was suggested that I hot glue it in, I just haven’t done it yet. I do know that when I added the switch and it’s plate it did cut down on the vibration a bit. Now we are having an armor party on the 4th so I will have a whole bunch of updates after that. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Well it’s been a while but here is an update. I just added a switch for my fans this morning so that I can turn them on and off after plugging them in to the usb power source. I also got in the proper abs belt piece and the proper control panel for the O2 canister/TD. I want to thank Sskunky of CFO for these parts and he was awesome and threw in a couple of extra pieces. He also was the one who I got the proper “U” shaped trim from him. Now this makes only one more piece I need to get to complete the TKC and that’s the belt. This will be a bit before I get it since I will be getting it from Imperial Issue and I need to know what my waist size is with the armor on. This will come sometime after the armor party. Now on a sour note...my last posting was about how I used the Anovos gloves and built Centurion level backhands. Well I was trying them on the other day and when I was taking them off, the fingertip of the left hand sheared right off. Now I am have to go mount and get another pair. This time I’m looking into more chemical resistant gloves or even sandblast gloves. Does anyone have a suggestion on what I should get? Now we are going to be having an armor party here soon and I should have a few more updates after that. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Get in contact with Sskunky here on the forums or CFO on Facebook. He can get you what you need. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Here is the thread for the one I did for my son.

  13. I actually use a bit of Smoothcast 65D to back fill the screw holes and smooth out the rougher parts. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. That’s the pain of this build. I used different rotary tools to gut the innards as well as a body saw. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. That’s not good for Anovos Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
