i am currently working on an aluminium boba helmet but will be starting a set of alu chest armour.i know some folk out there have done armour in alu but i was wondering if any one has done this.(just hoping to find out if it actually works ok)
1=cutting armour out from light guage aluminium
2=dressing/hammer the edges round to give the armour a thicker look
3=pack the inside with somekind of polystyrene of similer
hopefully by packing the inside this will give the armour a more solid feel to it than having to use thick material of some kind and bear the weight.plus it may give and easier route to attaching it to suit etc .
any help on this = many thanks
