You should be fine with the 15 mm cover strips, but for additional strength I would suggest putting cover strips on the inside as well.  You can use scraps from your build as they don't have to be pretty.  Be sure to save some scraps for the inside front of the calves as well.  Since they get a workout from constantly opening/closing them while putting on your armor any reinforcement helps.

Thanks for the speedy reply, I've already done the internal ones with scraps, so this will be something for me to do tonight.

Biceps just awaiting cover strips 9eea04b22417c41ef266871fdbfa98a3.jpg

Forearms with a few clamps

Think I need a new system to be more efficient in the downtime while I wait for the E6000 to dry.

Gotta love the $15 for a billion clamps bag from Bunnings lol

You’ll work out the order and process that works best for you, just remember slow and steady wins the race

Note to self, cover strips are slightly different colour on reverse side, gotta make sure I put the correct side up

Just a tip, if you use some coarse sandpaper on the backs of the cover strips and front of armor it will help the glue to adhere. I scuff my sheets before cutting in to strips, can easily tell which side is which then ;)

Thanks was doing it after cutting, would make it easier doing it before.
