    Fiberglassing Vac-Formed Armor

    hey all, just wondering how i could strengthen my bradleyfett armor...should i use an epoxy-resin mix with fiberglass cloth on the inside to get that accomplished? i did this with my ruffkin gauntlets, and it seemed to work alright...and ideas? thanks!!

    Yeah, use epoxy resin and not polyester resin and you should be fine.
