XYDIU Posted June 15, 2021 Author Report Share Posted June 15, 2021 Finally finished trimming (somewhat, still need to trim for fitment when I get the gaskets and the like): Here are the thighs trimmed and sanded (although upon a second look it seems like it may need a little more when they are glued together. Thighs trimmed The whole of the armor after everything trimmed and sanded: I think an ab box may have fallen off the table before I took this pic, but nonetheless it is all done. (the abdomen also was trimmed along the bottom edge a little more too to make it more like anovos's armor. Markings were on there, but I forgot to cut out a small part, ) With that being done, now I will move onto gluing (what I can) and once I get my gaskets then final trimming and fitting the parts that that would affect. One thing related to that is the abdomen and the back part of the abdomen: Right now it, and the chest, are a little wide on me, so I think I am going to trim down the back of the abdomen, on the sides, and then curve in the rest, on the sides with a heat gun. I was just wondering if anyone did something similar and knows what settings would be the best. I tested a small piece of ABS scrap with it on high (1500 F, ~817 C ) for about 20 seconds, but it didn't seem to bend much, albeit it was thicker than most parts. On the topic of glue, I did a bit of research into plastic welders, JB Weld and Plexus, and I decided to go with JB Weld, the 5000 PSI one, (5 oz) since it was on sale on Amazon for $14, as opposed to Plexus MA310 which I could not find in stock and would have been over $100 after. Furthermore, I wanted to know what kind of "bondo" or spot putty is recommended. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
