    Oct 2, 2007, 2:33 PM - GIRTH BELT INTREST/RUN #1

    Hello all,
    I am doing a run soon of ESB and ROTJ colored girth belts. these belts are 14 strand 100%wool (not rope) I use my own recipe for these NOT Rit dye. I do an Acid wash which covers the belt evenly as opposed to Rit dye. don't let the word "acid" fool you, there isn't any acid in the dye just in the vinager that is used. the Rit dye color doesn't take very well and will fade over time and continue to bleed on your flight suit. the acid dyes I use and the colors stay true for many many years. for those of you who are not sure what color belt goe's with your Fett, here it is..ESB-Burgundy/wine and ROTJ-Russet Red. I will include the black nylon strap which you would attach according to your waist size. just remember..if you are a 34" waist then you will get a 32" belt to allow for the strap. if you want a certain belt size, let me know. Belts are $50 shipped in US and Canada. $63 to Europe. please PM me for payment instructions and belt size.

    THIS RUN IS NOW CLOSED!!! THANKS TO ALL OF YOU WHO ORDERED BELTS.

    No problem! I found this too.

    From the Cargo Hold Code of Conduct:

    Runs and Interest Threads

    If you plan to produce a limited run of an item and also plan to post an interest thread and/or sign-up list, do not post them in The Cargo Hold. Instead, post the interest thread/sign up list thread in the forum that is most closely related to the item that is for sale (example: post your interest thread for a run of jet pack rockets in the Jet Pack forum). The Cargo Hold is intended for items that are available for immediate sale or trade, not future projects in which the item has yet to be created or completed.

    UPDATE: whoever is running the warehouse at the horse shack needs to take a course in customer service. those "cowboys" shipped me the wrong girths?? but not to worry fella's, I have been told that they will next day ship the correct ones to me on Tuesday. we are still on schedule to mail these out before Halloween so don't worry. just thought I'd let you all know what's going on so far.

    just wanted everyone to know that we are safe here in San Diego, the fires didn't ruin our home but sadly many many people here don't have a home to go to. our hearts go out to all the families who suffered and lost everything. our thoughts and prayers are with you all. a quick thank you to all the members who took time and wrote to me concerning my health and safety, you guys are AWESOME. it really means a lot! this community really is a family.

    I am starting up the belts tomorrow (still not feeling 100% from the smoke inhalation) and will try to get them out as soon as possible thank you all again for you support and paitence.

    Wahoo! Well I have a svelt 36" waist (before lunch ) So I guess maybe a 32" belt will be right. If they make a 33" that would be even better.

    the same Mojo-Fett, a 33" belt. you figure you have to allow for the flight suit and Cod piece. I also include the accurate black nylon straps so you can adjust it where you want. thanks for your question my friend.....
