So since there’s 8 of us in this run. We got our first of 4 BBB’s!

No ETA yet on when the last 3 will arrive.

We had our armor shipped to our buddy’s work place. (Also apart of our SCG build group.)

Thankfully he was nice enough to start separating all the parts and put them in a box for each of us.

And here’s my BBB. Just missing the helmet and the other few parts that were still awaiting.

And I got my gloves from Endor Finders.
I really like the feel of these gloves. They fit my hand pretty well.

Sweeeeeet! My EF gloves here yesterday too! They feel amazing cuz they're lined, but I hope they're not too hot here in SoCal... Did yours come with a string connecting them, and with opposite velcro on the backs of the hands (one hook, one loop)? Just curious!

 

And of course the thing I want most (helmet) is delayed... hahaha

Yeah they do! The lining is great. But yeah I feel they may get a little hot fast.
Ahh no string on mine, but they do have the opposite velcro on the back of the hands.

I really hope our helmets come in tomorrow. Lol

Couple of things noticed, just some small cracks thankfully nothing major.
And I’ll have to get the under suit taken in just a bit.

But other then that, no major problems with this kit!
Can’t wait to get with the others in our build group and start putting this thing together!

Small update.

I finished washing my armor.
Thankfully the fiberglass isn’t to bad to the touch anymore.

Meeting with the group today to discuss our plan of attack.

Another little update.

 

 

So sadly our group hasn’t been able to meet up due to a lot of conflicting schedules.

But I haven’t let this stopped me!

Now that I got one project done, time to go full force on this.

 

Just got my boots in last week from Imperial Boots. As always, the boots are great.

 

 

Today I was able to file out the teeth and vents.

Some small progress, but it’s something!

 

Next step is to reinforce the helmet a bit on its top side.

I'm still thinking about taking them out... I noticed that for L3 it doesn't need to drilled out.

 

But if I do, I would use a small drill bit and file the rest down.

I wanna reinforce and thicken em up from the backside before I mess with mine, forsure. I think a cutoff wheel on my Dremel might be the right size, then finish to the ends with jeweler's files. They're so thin tho, it makes me nervous and I do NOT want to bust one of those little vents if I can help it. I may not cut em at all, we'll see. I plan to troop in this armor so I want it to be STRONG.

 

Looking good tho, man!

Little fit test today!

This is me holding the thighs up. They fall on my knees so I’ll need to make a thigh guarder set.

So seeing how it all fits. I’ll have to cut the top of the barrel and thighs.

And the bottom of the shins.

 

I’m considering of maybe trimming the butt plate down too.

 

 

I also cut the thigh in the back. I need to make it tighter so I’m basically not swimming in it.

However as we can see the cover strip isn’t centered. So now I’m thinking of cutting it off and reattaching it.

Thoughts on it?

And this is what the thigh looks like before cut.

Hoping to hear thoughts and advice.

Thanks for taking a look!

I had to do a considerable amount of trimming as well. If you cut off the cover strip you would probably have to sand the back of it down to get the right thickness. The buttplate shape is a little off on Jim's kit so trimming around the bottom would work out.

I used a dremel with a cutoff wheel. To smooth it out I used my belt sander. Worked pretty well. Just watch for fiberglass dust. Use a respirator and long sleeves.
