    When I got my FP knees I thought I was getting fiberglass, but Chris told me he wasn't going to do them in fiberglass anymore as unfortunatly fiberglass ones can crack too and the gel coat can flake off thus ruining the paint job, that is why FP decided not to go with the fiberglass knees and went with styrene. Styrene has a little give to it where fiberglass dosn't and can still crack and break.

    Not only that, fiberglass is heavier and will be harder to stay up then styrene.
    Besides, I beieve the real ones are made from styrene, if it is good enough for the real one, it is good enough for me.

    Ditto..........
    I lost my right RA knee. I was just standing there and POP there it went. Glad you posted that earlier thread I contacted HH about his. Anyone have his knees? and how'd they hold up?

    thanks

    Yeah...I broke my right knee armor on my Jango. Very embarrasing to go through in public. it completely snapped in two and dangled by the elastic straps as I walked. Maybe rubber would be a better replacement. Any thoughts?

    "Aww man."
    Those were the words that came out of my mouth when I came home from work today and discovered that my sidearm that I had taken so much pride in making, the sidearm which happened to be the first thing I ever really worked, was on the floor chipped. The paintjob on one side of the gun is ruined.
