So the not as big as I imagined BBB (Mark has good packing skills) arrived last week.

I've been collecting my supplies while I wait mainly using an excellent thread that I'm sure a lot of you are using.

 

Supply list for your TK build....

Right on Tom!!! I'm really excited for you. Be sure to come out to the Armor Party on April 3rd at the same place in Vancouver. Roster up in the ORG Forum if you can make it.

Neck seal arrived from Darman. Very nice. Have bought under suit from Amazon. Not sure if it's correct material but it's black so should be ok.

Still coating helmet with plasti dip. This is going to be a slow build! Difficult to find time with a full time job and kids.

 

Hope to attend local armor party in April. That should speed things up a bit.

Finished plasti dip spray of front of helmet. Any tips about touching up around eyes? Just some black paint?

 

Gluing inner cover strips to both sides of one half of bicep(x2). You reckon 24 hours is enough to let e600 dry before I move on to glue the biceps together?

 

Wasn't sure if 48 hours is standard or 24 is fine.

24 hours is the accepted time to let E6000 set before moving on. The package actually says it sets quicker, but its best not to try to mess with it before 24.

 

You've got a great start - slow and steady will get you there sooner than you know. :)

Biceps done just need outer cover strips. Looking at forearms now.

Also wanted to get started on my TD but wanted to check measurements are ok.

CRL says approx length of TD is 7 1/2" is 8" close enough?

I would recommend taking the pipe down to about 7 1/2", and trim the ABS pieces to match the lengths shown in the first pic of the linked post above by ukswrath.

The pipe is 7" long but with the caps on it's a bit over 8" as it doesn't fit into the recess of the caps. But it's overall length that matters.

 

Here's my plan. Gonna trim 5mm off each cap (by sanding?) then 10mm off the control panel to bring it down to 120mm.

 

That increases the gap by 10mm on each side. So I trim the pipe by 20mm. Brings the overall length to 190mm with caps on. Gaps will be back to about 15mm each side.

 

Sound good?
