ZaanSolo Posted January 20 Report Share Posted January 20 Hello everyone So I thought I should do a build thread, I want to preface this with I have never done this before so brace yourself. There will be lots of errors, but I will make up for it in enthusiasm. So BBB arrived yesterday, haven't been able to unpack it yet (see next steps). But overall some details: - TLJ kit from Jim Tripon. Ordered 22 Nov, 12 Dec impulse added the blaster (obviously moving shipping date out), shipped 15 Jan and received 19 Jan. - Will be ordering gaskets, harness, neck seal, shiny shorts and closer to end of the build the cape from Geeky Pink - Shoes TBC (still deciding if I will do lifters, I am 1.71m so on the fence) - Gloves TBC - Under suit, living in Sweden has supplied me with many of those - Chrome finish currently 3 options get it professionally done (started reaching out to shops, but will delay build do to cost), metallization (see previous option) and finally possibly having it wrapped. Not sure if anyone has done that yet and if it could/does work. Next steps: - Clean kit by scrubbing down with scour pads and soap (just need to get a work jacket and gloves today for that) - Do a test fit after cleaning - We don't have a lot of workspace so ordered a little gazebo to work in outside, that will arrive with the primer and sanding paper etc. Hopefully this gets going Monday - I am waiting to hear if their is an equivalent of FibreGlast 1110 available here, once I know I will either do a layer of the resin and Plastidip else just a layer of Plastidip (assuming Plastidip should go on once the snaps etc. has been installed) Excited to get the build going and taking you all on this janky journey with me.
