  1. No embedded canvas in the AP hand guards I have. I'll try the black silicone whist sourcing another version. Might be the abs hand guards just for my basic approval photos. Sent from my SM-A520F using Tapatalk
  2. 3rd different type of glue for the hand guards. Same result, adhered perfectly to the glove not to the latex. Guess I will try the black silicone suggestion. Sent from my SM-A520F using Tapatalk
  3. 48hrs later, going to give more time given the glue for gloves hasn't arrived Sent from my SM-A520F using Tapatalk
  4. Straps glued. Time to wait for glue to dry, and delivery of glue to finish last piece, the gloves. Sent from my SM-A520F using Tapatalk
  5. Since my last real fitting I extended the chest ab straps to move the chest plate up, now only about 10-15mm overlap of chest and ab. With padding out of helmet, bottom of helmet now level with neckline, eliminating the big gap that was there before. Sent from my SM-A520F using Tapatalk
  6. Thanks, first definitely feels more comfortable. Wife helped marking up with tape, large tab + 3 small tabs at front, only 2 overlapping at back Sent from my SM-A520F using Tapatalk
  7. Does height of the back look ok, not too low?, first photo has 20mm longer straps. Kinda look exactly the same don't they? Trying to get perfect before I glue shoulder straps in place. Sent from my SM-A520F using Tapatalk
  8. Yeah did that and the glue adhered well on the gloves. Ordered the glue so hopefully Aust post is not too slow, so I can be finished by next weekend. Sent from my SM-A520F using Tapatalk
  9. Thanks, might see if i can get that in Australia. Shouldn't be this difficult. might try sanding the bottom of hand guards more. Sent from my SM-A520F using Tapatalk
  10. 3rd pair of gloves and 3rd fail. Followed justjoseph's instructions. Used e6000 on this attempt with about 5 kgs of weight on them for more than 24hrs. Flexible hand guards just fell off, glues not adhering at all, glue adhered perfectly fine to the gloves which had been sanded. 1st attempt was superglue, 2nd attempt plastics glue with primer, all same result nothing seems to be wanting to adhere to the AP supplied hand guards. Any suggestions? Sent from my SM-A520F using Tapatalk
  11. Thanks Outer dropboxes are 14-15mm winners are around 12mm as fit flush inside when placed on a table. Belt buttons have a slight return edge as rivet + washer didn't give me any space to have completely flat, even with trying to gently trim out inside with dremel. Planning to replace the rivets with some 4mm long Chicago screws so it should fit better but that will be down the track when retail opens up again. Thanks for the tips Sent from my SM-A520F using Tapatalk
  12. More progress this week. Belt done. Decided to copy a suggestion from Mayo's build to put some storage in the belt boxes for cash and ID. Just gloves and shoulder strap to go. Then to fix up all the other little things on my list. Sent from my SM-A520F using Tapatalk
  13. Bugger, just saw this post after finishing my stunt belt today with spacing at 2cm from old diagram Sent from my SM-A520F using Tapatalk
  14. Thanks, I was planning to use normal rivets, as have run out of small Chicago screws.
  15. awesome build thread, been a great help. What did you use to secure holster to belt, chicago screws? Can you use rivets?
