Well I am thoroughly enjoying this thread. You've all seen my thread so you know where I stand. Should be fun to watch this experiment. I hope Gabe is watching, because it'll be interesting to see what his best effort produces. The knee armor shown in the pictures looks pretty much the same as the stuff I got. I had to epoxy the joints which broke and re-Ebay.
My salute to the experiment and it's endeavor for objectivity.
