  1. Requesting 501st member access https://www.501st.com/members/displaymemberdetails.php?userID=33867
  2. My armor was accepted by my GML . I now have my TK# and am a part of the Diamond Garrison. I am going to try an move forward and get my armor reviewed for expert Infantryman. Thanks again to everyone here who commented.
  3. Added some additional strapping inside, I think it is helping quite a bit: after new elastic added inside:
  4. I am using the older style elastic with the brackets - I might swap these out for either stronger elastic or nylon straps with snaps. That way they will stay in position and the shoulder or lower elastic will stretch instead...
  5. One problem I am running into is my height- Once I have everything on, I have a gap between my chest and torso. Same on the back. If I push the chest down some, it does not fit as well in the chest . You can see here, the shoulder bells do not fit very tight. I might need to do a warm water bath to make them a little wider to fit my shoulders. The back piece does not fit directly on my back, you can see through the gap. Another piece I might need to do a warm water bend on the top of the back to flatten it out some.
  6. Thanks to anyone who takes a look at my build thread. This is my first time armor build. Name: Matt Certain Height - 6 foot 2 inches tall Weight - 220 lbs Being a little bigger and taller this should be an interesting build. I purchased my armor from ATA at the start of 2020 and have been working on it since. I am a little late starting my thread, but better late than never. Below is from the BBB day, I will post pictures of where I am now in the process.
