Skookumshot's First Build

Recommended Posts

I made the visor removable using Chicago screws,  like Alay and TKZombie did.

I used this green grinding screen that I saw on another post.  Sorry, I can't remember who originally posted it.

I made EVA foam grommets to help keep the Chicago screws in place and reduce some strain.

I had intended to use Sugru, but when I saw Alay's post I liked the idea of being able to easily change the lenses if they got scratched.

I'll be installing my own homebrew voice changer and I've bought an Aker amp.  I see that most  people seem to install the amp in their chest, but I find it is a little too thick to fit comfortably.  Are there any other ideas?  I'm starting to think I may have to design my own amp and put speakers in the bucket.  Maybe I should buy Tony's hovi tips and amp, but I like doing things myself when I can.  It's more fun that way.

 

Tony; will your hovi tips meet Centurion approval, or are they something you swap in after approval?

It's been a week since I reinforced the shoulder straps.  Some of the E6000 was trapped in airtight pockets and never cured and it softened the HIPS to the point where I was able to put holes in it with my fingernail.  Luckily, it came off fairly easily.  I'm sure glad I didn't glue them to my armour right away.  Lesson learned!

so, I know the three pairs of rivets on the ab plate and the two on the ammo knee should be painted white, but what about the one on the bottom of the ab?

This one doesn't get painted.
