    Apr 15, 2006, 2:17 PM - Armor Material #1

    Hi im new here, and was wondering what type of material would be best for armor. I want it to be able to withstand what the 'real' one would. Eg, rolling around, crawling through shrubs, scaring random people etc. -obi

    Well, theres a couple methods, now I have done 3 diff types.

    1st attempt was with sheet metal, only thing is it can get sharp and requires a lil expierience...

    2nd was using a plastic bucket which you can get at Home Depot stores, also garbage cans from walmart work...

    3rd I bought Fiberglass made pieces that are molded to proper side and battle damage, but that can get a lil more costly.

    Also people do make these, you might wanna check the cargo hold for stuff people sell sometimes if you don't feel like actually making it.
