    Are you trying to add grommits to just hte portions you've made out of for sale signs? There are lines traced out on the vest and then your signs which are smaller. Sorry, I just don't understand exactly what you're going for.

    teabo,

    To be honest, to get the best fit of your armor plates placement on your flak vest, you should get someone to help you out. keep in mind that there are curves on the armor and your body and working a 'flat' surface view isn't always goona be 'correct'.

    Put on the vest, make sure it's properly fitted, then have your friend place the armor templates onto the vest and outline it with a pencil. That's how I did mine.

    Hope this helps.

    Stay safe,

    Tim.

    What I always did was fill the vest with a Pillow and then set it in a chair. That way I could set it all up myself.
