    Re: Bradleyfett Armor Progress

    i am going to use a lighter....tried it out on a scrap, and it worked pretty good...still kind of clueless on the knees...both the missle/dart side and inside pieces have to be mounted, bradley gave me a quick idea, but still not sure of how to do that...the knees are pretty thin, especially on the vertical parts on the inside and out where those pieces go...any ideas would be great...i need to heat up the left chest piece and bend it a little, it has a greater arch to it than the right one does, so when i set it down on a flat surface, the left one sits higher than the right...i guess that is just cosmetic, but it bugs me a little...any ideas there would be great too...thanks guys for the encouragement!! and yes, having a blast, jawa!!!

    You may need to trim the top of the kneepads some more. The plastic is too thick right there and it will crack easily. Keep it at about about 1/8" or so.

    Re: Bradleyfett Armor Progress

    It's my understanding that per what Darrell (FettDad) told me he was selling it to Boomer, (a fellow Okie!).
    But he is going to be absent from here for a little while, as he currently doesn't have access to the net at home. He IS looking to get that rectified soon tho.
    In the meantime he said he was going to check in periodically about once a week, by means of a public library or something.

    Good to hear!
    The sale of the armor I mean, not the lack of internet. That bites.

    I hear ya. He will be using the funds to upgrade his armor another step from what he says. I will be getting the internet back when they finish building the new Casa De Boomer. Hopefully in the next few weeks. (its only taken them a year and a half to get this far and its no palace)
