    Jan 4, 2005, 6:25 AM - armor update pix. #1

    I have gotten a bit more done this week.

    I got the armor on the vest.

    I used the velcro, and did not like the gaps. So I got the high power magnets and epoxyed it to the armor. then stuck the magnet on the vest.

    a very good way to go. Plus it is prob. good for your health.

    It looks so much better.

    I am working on bondoing the Cod and the neck and back armor right now. Once I get that done then I will dirty up the armor and vest.

    Then it is the Helmets turn. and lastly I will work on the guns.

    My mom finished sewing the suit last night also.

    What do you guys think.

    I think its looking great!
    Gonna need to tone down the colour on the jumpsuit maybe?...
    maybe just some real heavy washing and weathering...
    But I cant wait to see the rest.
    Great stuff!

    So far so good, the vest and suit need to be weathered and dirty to match your cool armor.

    Thanks. I know it is bright blue. I will try the color remover and then let it hang up in the window for a while.

    Awesome, you did the magnets huh? What size/shape did you get? I am always afraid I will glue the armor on crooked or something with velcro you can move it around, once you snap or do this method there is zero leeway.

    I used these little round magnets that were about 1/2" across. They are super magnets. They can barely be pulled apart.

    I glued them to the armor in all the corners. with epoxy.

    i used some velco in the middle to hold it in place.

    Then I just stuck the magnets to the back of the vest and it is going no where.

    They are unbelievably strong.

    I was about to be snap-fixing my armor. Awesome, Yay, I am Freakin' Out, my Exclamation Point key DOES NOT WORKiii

    Oh well. Cool about the magnets. One thing...your armor would look very nice with some Krylon Fusion. Anyone know what color...anyone, anyone?

    Later Guys,

    After the 2 months if took me painstakingly I might add to get all the weathering right on my Boba armor?

    Ok truth time, the only reason it took 2 months is because I've been lazy. The armor is 90% done though.

    Yes the ones that I got are real close to the size of the forth one down. Excpet they are round. I like the price of those on the web page. Mine were like 3.00/6 magnets. I need to buy about 36 more.
