  1. Yes. In fact, the standard for the holster to belt connection is Chicago screws. I used single cap rivets for the ammo belt to canvas belt connection and the straps to drop boxes connection. A lot of people also use rapid rivets (or whatever they are called - the ones you attach with the rivet gun). The rivets on the belt get covered by little ABS caps and you can't seen the connection on the back of the drop boxes, so you are free to use whatever works for you. The holster connection is the only one that is seen.
  2. Not necessarily. The back plate will be flush to the top of the kidney while the chest piece will freely overlap the abdomen.
  3. Yeah, ignore me. I don’t know Anovos from my a$$.
  4. Ah, very well. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Also, don't worry about the space around the wrist - once your gloves are on, the gap is not nearly as noticeable. A little extra room is far better than too little.
  6. As Mario mentioned, you can trim away the return edge - that will give you extra room. Keep in mind that the coverstrip does not need to be 15mm You can make it a bit thicker if need be for the size of your arms. You are larger than the 5'10" 160lb actors used in the original movies - so wider coverstrips will easily look proportional on you. Good luck with the build!
  7. I'm having trouble making out the details in the picture, but from what I can tell, yeah... I would adjust the coverstrips to cover more of the raised part. Maybe take a close up picture and post before you start to pull things apart. The tricky part is that you don't want the coverstrips to be too wide. 20mm is getting a bit wide, but if you are a bigger guy then it will look proportional on you. I'm a bit smaller, so what I ended up doing is splitting the difference - I made my coverstrips about 17mm wide and had about a mm of the raised area showing on either side. If you do go with the 20mm coverstrips, keep in mind that your thigh and front shin coverstrips will need to be wider than 20mm to keep the proportions right.
  8. Looks good to me. Can't tell for sure from the picture, but be sure the coverstrip covers the entire raised area. Just in case you didn't notice - Mark's cover strip material has a "good" side and a "bad" side. One side is more glossy than the other. Also, be sure to rough up the gluing surfaces with some sandpaper - it helps the E6000 hold. Keep up the good work!
  9. Impressive. Most impressive. I sure like the look of a painted bucket.

  11. Congrats on BBB day! AP is a great kit. Hopefully you are aiming for higher level approval. It is easiest to do from the get go and the AP kit makes it pretty easy. Post your progress pics and ask plenty of questions. Good luck.
