  1. Another numb question on the forearms watching trooperbay he leaves 5/16 for the cover strip for each forearm Is this a generic size or so I need to cut some try on etc Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Perfect, pics help a lot also a good angle give me an idea what to shoot for!! Thanks Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Thanks for the quick reply!! Work on them some more tomorrow, not finding a lot of WTF pics to go by making me super nervous LOL
  4. 95% finished my bucket been dreading starting on the rest of the armor seems so daunting LOL.. Maned up today started on the forearms needing some reassurance watched trooperbay videos and had no return edge whatsoever looking at other pics on this site see some with return edges.. CRL states no return edge inside front forearm.. added my pics so I should cut and sand up to my pencil marks? I know this been asked million times makes me nervous!! Thanks Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Following.. My Helmet 95% complete.. Dreading and really apprehensive about the rest of the build figured I would start on the arms first.
  6. 95% finished my WTF bucket.. Then this arrived today Thanks WTF Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Green lens install.... I did not want to do the whole lens install, so one lens for each eye..Checked out the forum a lot of the pics are missing did found a couple I liked using screws.. So here is my problem I can not get the lens to fit flush tried hair dryer method and boiling water to shape the lens nothing happening.. Other option is to invest in a heat gun or try to find precut and shaped lens I guess? Saw the posts about smitty had lens but that thread is dead now. Any suggestions?? Almost done need to paint ears, frown, ordered my fans hope finish up bucket next couple days then order rest of the amour. : ) Thanks Charlie
  8. Ive put my ears on and screwed them down 100 times now still not satisfied LOL.. Pretty sure I've made several mistakes its a learning experience and I'm not a crafty person LOL
  9. Used Walts video and Trooperbay.. I trimmed down then started using a sanding block.. Hard to say how much I trimmed just kept sanding until I was close to what I thought was to a good fit..I'm sure others with more experience than me will chine in.. I need to work on my left ear tho... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=stuqNs4g2s4 https://trooperbay.com/helmet-assembly/
  10. So this happened at work Tuesday!! last 2 days been woking on the bucket, break the paint brushes out today and trim the ears little more progress is slow
  11. I switched to the other ear try work on it a while I'm afraid it's going to be worse LOL I rewatched the Walts ear trimming video see that mines a lot thicker than one in the video got plenty of room to keep sanding Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Thanks..That's what I was thinking also, been working it with sanding block worked on it yesterday and this afternoon starting to get frustrated Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Any ideas on how i can close the gap on the back side of this ear? I've been sanding down the top section hoping it would close the gap some.. these ears!!!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I'm hoping to be able to finish up the trimming that we are talking about and work on my ears..I have a 3 day weekend starting tomorrow suppose to rain most of those days.. Also decide on what type voice changer and fans to install and order those.. I want to completely finish the bucket before I order the rest of the armor.. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
