Depending on the size of the shims and the width of the cover strips you need, you may be able to use the ABS that you trimmed from the kidney, chest, or ab pieces.

I had thought about that. just gonna need to be creative with the curves on the scraps. maybe a swim in some boiling water to flatten them out should probably do the trick. fingers crossed I'll have enough!

Using plastic from different builders is always a gamble, but since Anovos used custom plastic its even potentially worse. Please let us know how it matches and make sure to take pictures in different lighting.

I bought hand plates from ATA and compared them to Anovos. The match looked really good. I've requested some extra for shimming now too. :)

Just an FYI, I messed up a bit and needed a new forearm strip.  I purchased an Evergreen #9060 styrene sheet.  The Evergreen styrene is noticeably whiter than the Anovos white.

Anovos is a off white satin finish. Really noticable with new white boots.
