  4. I will post a few more pics of my build soon, but had to share the good news. Submitted my pics last night at like 8 to my GML, he had one correction for me to make (shoulder bells lwere a tad low) fixed that, sent a pic showing the correction, he approved it, and HQ sent me the approval email around 1230 am.. WOW just wow on that turn a round. so thank you to Garrison Tyranus GML (Frank) for your quick review and feedback. thank you tkrestonova (Brian) for your constant help through out the process, answering my random facebook messages about small questions haha. JonHagg for your valuabl
  5. update on buttons, in case anyone else in the future ever does the same thing and is wondering. My GML said the buttons are fine, but they should not be raised, I'll have to remove the return edges and should be good to go.
  6. Hello! feel bad for neglecting this build thread but I've been pushing full steam ahead to finish it.. so I've made a TON of progress since last post. I was able to attend an armor party with my local Garrison (shoutout to Tyranus!) which set me up to be able to finish it by getting proper measurements for the thighs and shins. We removed 3 inches from the top of the thighs (relatively short at 5'8" here!). For the cover strips went with 40 mm on advice from Garrison members. Got the inside of my hemlet wired up. Though I was very sad to see that Ukswrath added a usb power and
  7. Decided to go right into fixing it up, couldn't leave it in thst state haha. Took it apart, added an additional screw (1st pic) lined the faceplate up with the groove from the back cap (2nd picture). Some light trimming on the ear piece and the gap is now gone!.. in the front. In the back it is raised and the additional screw i had added shows a bit. Will this be a big problem for approval or should I fix it up?(4th pic) And did the holes for the hearing assist microphones by drilling with the biggest bit I had then using an exacto knife to get it to a good fit.. Mounting of
  8. So after staring at it for weeks, i decided to go for it and attempt to assemble the bucket. I feel like i got the left side done perfectly, but the right side definitrly has too much gap. Think ill habe to tske that side apart and adjust the faceplates position. This is also my last session working on it til the armor party next weekend, goingon a work trip. Looking forward to getting some help on the thighs, shins, and with snaps. I cant seem to set them right. Sent from my SM-G935V using Tapatalk
  9. Did a test fit the other night to get a measurement for the belt I'll be ordering from TKittel, and for the side shims. The biceps are giving me a bit of trouble, not sure if they're too big, too small, or just need to be trimmed so they're shorter, but they're not comfortable at all and causes pinching when i put the fore arm on if I'm not careful. Lastly, got around to making snap plates after some trial and error and put the first ones on the chest, as well as glued the shoulder straps to the chest.
  10. Out of curiosity, what are these for? Dont seem to go with esb build Sent from my SM-G935V using Tapatalk
  11. Hey everyone! been working on it just about everyday for an hour here or there but feel liek I've gotten a good chunk done! This was my first complete part, left bicep! woo then things picked up once I (mostly) "figured" it out: Shoulders have straps in them, out cover strips installed on both forearms and biceps. I will be making snap plates tonight. I also taped together the back to fit and prep for trimming. Is the pencil line in the picture the proper spot to cut more or less? i was eyeballing it based off pics from other build threads. I'm supposed to trim th
