  1. My thoughts, not official in any way, is no one is going to get a ruler out on your armor. If it looks good then should be ok. I used Chicago screws and they have worked fine. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. You just want a balance of gap between biceps and forearm and forearm to hand guard. Also you can lower your chest piece down. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I had to put a similar V opening in my thighs to make them fit high enough. Larger strip in the back is usually ok. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. My ab and chest was the same shape but I am big enough to fill it out. I reduces the ridges fir space and comfort. The chest piece doesn’t need to lay flat over the ab so only you will know the difference. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Yeah, that’s my belt!! If you have any questions just let me know. My build thread is a bit messy but might have some info there for you. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. The AP screws might get past basic but you will need different ones to make higher levels. Same for trim as you need s-trim for helmet if going for centurion. I also trimmed the TD clips at both ends and added a new hole to rotate for panel to face outward. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Congratulations fellow AP trooper. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Always wanted the inside of my bucket to be black but cautious about spraying myself. So @FarEast was kind enough to share his skills and expertise and got the job done nicely. Then second to-do item was shorten the side screws to avoid the occasional scratch when removing the helmet. Now I need to redesign the padding and audio wiring. Previously the position of amp would press into the back of my head. The s-trim would rub my shoulder bridges so need to raise the helmet just a touch.
  9. Looking good. You might want to rotate the TD so the panel is facing out. You can see my threads how I just moved the holes and trimmed off excess. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I did something similar, even put abs strips between to fill the gap. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. One day you will get there, keep dreaming! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  14. Some suggest giving a few seconds pause between hot and cold water to avoid making the plastic brittle. Always test with some trimmings or scraps before going in with the full pieces. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Those marks seem a bit strange, are you sure it is from clips? I glued soft side of Velcro on slips and back of holster screws which did the trick for me. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
