Hello,

I'm still a newbie so this may sound really dumb.  

 

I've been sizing and testing out my armor and it seems noisy as I walk around.  It's not a groaning of seams as much as it is a rattle of free floating parts.  Shoulders on biceps, boxes on thighs, etc.  Is this normal?  

 

There's a part of me that wants to modify the armor into stealth mode with little bits of white felt hidden in the noisy areas.

Yes, this is normal.

As Mathias said, It's normal. Actually it's very screen-accurate. Watch some of the raw material from ANH and ROTJ. Exact same noise.

Just to quiet the boxes down a tad, I stuck a small strip of white Velcro (the fuzzy side) on the back of the boxes, not visible at all, took a little of the clunk out.

Todd, I don't know if you have anything like this in the US, but it works a charm for quietening down rattling plastic. I run a strip around the inside of my breastplate (so that there is no contact between my breastplate and my Ab plate). I also run a strip around the inside of the bottom edge of my shoulder bells. I lubricate them with a bit of talcum powder so there is no binding between plastic and foam.

Great suggestions, thanks!  I'll see after my first couple of troops if I find it really annoying.  If so, I'll try some of these.
