    wow...

    anyways, the cod is all painted and attached to the girth the same way the old cod was, so tommorow when it's dry and I sewed the elastique strap onto the jumpsuit I might be able to do a new fit... and then below the waiste I should be finished...

    tomorrow I also hope to buy velcro for my chest pieces, and strap material for the jet pack harness system.

    then all that is really left are some gloves...

    but I'll get around to that...

    I wasn't really sure where to put this....
    I know it's about the jet pack harness system, but it also shows how hte backplate armor piece looks when I wear it... overall... the way the pack hangs is alot better then what it was.. higher and more straight...

    now I'm going to create another flak vest, one that better suits my needs...

    @ gator... ow man not that dude... I liked jis elf appearance... but now its all bloomy everywhere... yuk!

    @ pavespawn... no way dude!! your paintjob's amazing!! and I might update my own armor again after a long time with a bought set aswell!! Fett armor just doesn 't get any better then FP's... so your armor looks bloody amazing, especially the back and cod compared to my stuff.

    ok, I stiched the velcro to the vest and glued them to the armor and it's all drie and stuff...

    not 100% done just yet, I need to shorten the new screws for the studs a bit, and make new holes in the back plate a bit further up to my neck, so the collar is extended a bit... it's chocking me now when I move my arms up or look to the left and right....

    will come out ok... just another thing that sets me back a few more days to being finished
