  1. I used a mix of elastic and nylon for both flex and preventing pieces from being out of position. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. If making changes to the TD, you might want to rotate it so the panel is facing out. I had to make a similar change to mine. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I think you align it at the bottom and trim at the top. No one will see the tops of the biceps under the shoulder bells. Never worked with this problem so not completely confident. I think for aesthetics you want the bottom to be roughly the same diameter as the top of the forearm. That way it looks uniform in size. Obviously big enough to slip over your forearm and not be split apart by your biceps ( in case you have a gun show going up there). Some guide images show a V cut to keep bottom smaller allow space for said gun show. Keep in mind large biceps might make bells harder to k
  4. Looking great, should be easy basic for you. That helmet looks amazing with paint and ear angle. One fix for higher levels, try rotating the TD to show panel more horizontal. My TD needed to be rotated too, you can see in my build log. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Congratulations and welcome to the Empire. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I think the belt is upside down? Usually it is right over left and the excess ending as mentioned at the end of the TD. Not a requirement for EIB according to CRL. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Excellent set of armor Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. Congratulations fellow AP trooper. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. 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.
