    Bryan Coffey 70813 EIB Letter Tony Thank you Joseph! You are most welcome! Now on to your Centurion badge! http://www.whitearmor.net/eib/certificates/70813-eib.png
  2. Thank you Tony!! That is such great news to hear! Also, thank you very very much for being so clear on the next steps. It's enough to keep me busy for a while, but I'm not scared of a little work and taking baby steps to the finish line. Sent from my SM-G920V using Tapatalk
  3. Hey Juan, Armor looks great! I'm still pending approval, so take my advice with a grain of salt. I would include a picture of your S-trim and a close up of your boots. Also, I'm not sure if it's required or not but putting some black mesh behind the teeth is handy when trooping so people can't see in your bucket.

  5. Hi Tony, Thank you so much, please see below for the Left Side, Hovi Mic Tips closeup, and VCoder. Sorry about not including those in the original post - it seems photobucket got the best of me. VCoder Mic Tips Helmet Left Side
  6. Thanks Tony! And that is correct, ANH Stunt. Sent from my SM-G920V using Tapatalk

So IF you are able and IF my armor is approvable, I would very much appreciate it if I could make that deadline. If not, I still appreciate you taking the time to review my submission. Thank you! Armor Body Full Front Full Back Full Right Full Left Right Detail Left Detail Ab Details Helmet Front Back Right Left Lens Color S Trim Hovi Mic Tips Interior Strapping Ab & Chest I know that the strapping could look much better and I originally tried the bracket system, but I have a long torso and found that the extra support of more elastic kept everything where it needed to be while looking very nice from the outside (and not bending the armor). I plan to rivet the sides when I shed a few pounds and get down to Centurion weight. I know a specific strapping system is not listed in the guide, but I understand if this disqualifies me for EIB.

    Dremel/What size/kind?

    I used a corded dremel with the flex tool and only the sanding bit. I highly recommend that over the score and snap, because I slipped more with the knife than going slow with the sander. And if you slip with the knife it'll leave that spot weak. But even the sander will eat through ABS, so just keep the speed on medium and hold your hand steady - she'll take care of you easy as can be. Sent from my SM-G920V using Tapatalk

    Need Advice - First Build Getting Close

    Thank you Jon & Allan! Jon: Although I'm the only one that's worked on the physical armor, by myself would be a BIG stretch. I owe a lot of credit to many many people on this forum that helped me without knowing it. Tony's build has been my bible throughout the past month+ (see below)!! I've also kept a close eye on the build threads as they've come up, looking for different ways of doing things that I was struggling with. And thanks for pointing out the overlap on the belt, I'll have to pay close attention to that when I finish making my replacement. Allan: I know that gap isn't as pretty as I would like it to be . I did use the boil method to straighten the shoulder part of the back in order to lower it some. I'm afraid that if I lower it more that the gap between the back plate and the helmet would be too much. I am 6'1" and unfortunately have a slightly long torso for the height.

    Need Advice - First Build Getting Close

    Thank you so much!! Sent from my SM-G920V using Tapatalk
  14. Hi All, As you can see below, my build is coming along and now I need your advice. Can you please take a look below and let me know what is out of place? I've still got things to do, but the main body of work is done (unless you tell me otherwise ). Any comments would be appreciated! Front: I'm currently making a new belt and will snap that on to the ab piece so it doesn't slip, the Anovos supplied one could be a bit more sturdy. Also, I am going to put some foam in the thigh to get them sitting correctly. Back: Need to pick up some 1/4" elastic for the shoulder bridges. I may reset the angle on the right bridge if the elastic doesn't hold it in place. TD is not centered (even though I asked my girlfriend to check). haha Back of Knees: I did have to shim my thighs a small bit and am going to notch out the thigh at least. Do these look like an appropriate amount to you? I will round it more, just not great in MS Paint. How do you feel about notching the calf at the areas marked? Right: Still need to paint the knee ammo pack rivets. Left: Thank you so much for taking a look!! Hopefully I can fulfill that dream of being a TK soon! -Java
