4. Abdomen   First order of business, the cod. Slice off about 2.5cm, then rounded it off.     4a. Mark the cod rivet hole 2cm from the newly cut end of the cod.      4b. Drill 5/32" hol

4. Ab & 13. Kidney Side Rivets   Holes drilled, rivets installed. Measure the distance from ab rivet center to kidney rivet center. It should be 20mm.       Measure and cur 3/4" webbing

Tony! I'm nearly complete thanks to YOU! Just one thing I saw that one of the pics you touched on and it showed straps that go from the thighs to the and armor to hold them up or in place. Do you have any tips on how best to make that happen? Thanks!

Hey Derek, thanks for the kudos brother. You can suspend your thighs a few different ways.

 

1. Take 2" or 3" wide Velcro and sew a loop at one end for a waist belt. On the other sew on some Velcro, then add Velcro to the inner thighs. There you have an adjustable suspension system that's supported by your waist.

 

2. Take 2" or 3" wide Velcro and sew on some Velcro on both ends. One side connects behind your Ab the other to the thighs. Again, adjustable suspension system.

 

3. Glue, or add snaps to each end of 1" nylon webbing (length is up to the wearer). Then glue webbing or snap mounts to the thighs and Ab. Split the webbing somewhere in the middle/upper and add an 1" adjustable buckle for dis assembly and adjustment.

 

4. Buy an already completed suspension system that's not only used for the things but for the torso as well.

 

Hope this helps

awesome build thread, been a great help. What did you use to secure holster to belt, chicago screws? Can you use rivets? 

While we prefer actual rivets (as seen onscreen) Chicago screws or even snaps are acceptable.

Thanks, I was planning to use normal rivets, as have run out of small Chicago screws.
