  1. I think I’ve just done the same thing that you did. Everything was working perfectly, then somehow it’s all gone silent. But all the lights, laser, displays, menu, etc. are still ok. I don’t want to bother Paul right now as he’s dealing with Covid but I have a strong suspicion I’m going to have to buy a whole new BlastFX for my E-11.
  2. As I get closer to finishing my build, I’ve recently revisited my E-11. Still not finished painting it yet and I will be installing light and sound with TRamp’s BlastFX but I finally feel that it’s well on the way.
  3. A question about thighs, if I may: Do I trim the rear cover strips at this line?
  4. Yes I’d need bigger cajones than I could fit behind my codpiece to try the heat gun method! I’ve had pretty good success with a heat iron but I’m not sure it will work well on such a large area all at one time. Hot water seems like the way to go. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Thank you very much. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Amazing tip. Thank you. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  7. Looking to push this over the line. At least for basic approval first. I want to reshape one of my shins a little. When we talk about a hot water bath, are we talking boiling? Near boiling? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  8. So the notch is not required? I can easily fill it in the way you suggested, but do I need to add a strip beneath and recreate the notch lower down? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Thank you. Damn, that really sucks. Wish I’d known sooner. If I tried to adapt my armour to the way that you’ve indicated (the correct way) it would make it too long for my 5’8” frame. Unless I add an inch on the bottom of the kidney and take an inch off the butt. But I’m worried it would be too weak as there’s a lot stress in those areas. I guess I can’t get Centurion. Is it likely I could pass IE with it this way? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  10. @TheSwede My plates are aligned like the first 2 shots here, as recommended by gmrhodes13. This appears to contradict your post unless I’ve misunderstood. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  11. Thank you. I haven’t seen those diagrams before. My armour never had enough meat in the kidney plate to allow for A or B; it simply wasn’t deep enough. I’ve had to create something that’s basically a skinny version of C. Didn’t realise that would bar me from Centurion. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  12. Hope all’s well with the house move. Are you into your new place yet? Progress has stalled on this as I’ve been really busy with work. I think I’m ready to submit for approval at the most basic level (still lots of issues to fix) but I haven’t had time to take photos yet. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  13. Because I have fans in my helmet, and this system is so amazingly sensitive, I put the mics as far away from the fans as I could get them. Not permanently mounted yet, but I’ve road-tested them here behind my chest plate and they work like a charm. I run corded headphones up under my neck seal so none of the system is mounted in the helmet, making it easy to remove. It also gives me easy access to the gain dial.
