    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.....

    You know what? Based on that info I better get a 38" belt. Forgot that this sits low on the hips and has to fit over the cod, and that it shrinks a bit. Hope it is not too late to change that - sorry.

    are the threads that tie the strands together mohair or are they nylon like most of the girthbelts being sold now a days? If there mohair I might be interested in one.

    I 'm pretty sure they are nylon evan, which makes color matching the two materials a nightmare. after a while, I've heard that the nylon tends to lighten up a little. some people touch up the faded area with spray paint which works very well. thanks for that great question.

    Re: GIRTH BELT INTREST/RUN

    thanks Damian, that means a lot bro espeacially what we went through to get em done. I can't say enough to you guys for your continuing support. I know you've all been waiting for these and I'm just sorry I couldn't get them to you before Halloween. the first batch were left outside for a week in the harsh enviroment like smoke and ash and had to be done again but they turned out pretty good considering. thanks to Whistle8mp (Mike) for the advise on saving the damaged belts. his idea to use the Latex Stain was brilliant! these belts are better than ever and unlike the Rit and any other dye we're used to using, his method is by far the best. the colors were easier to match the movie stills and took out most of the guess work in trying to create the desired color. so thanks again Mike. I need a few days for these bad boys to dry fellas then they will be shipped out asap.

    many thanks,

    Ben.

    Re: GIRTH BELT INTREST/RUN

    GOOD NEWS, BELTS WILL BE MAILED OUT 11/20/07 !!!!!!!!!

    I have included the black nylon straps (2) but did not attach them. people have there own ideas on how they should be attached but I did put holes in them so you won't have to. the last belts I did last weekend, I used a different method than the "Acid" dye. these belts were left out in the smoke and ash for a week during the fires here in San Diego and had to be redone. the weather here has been overcast,damp and moist for the past week although we did have some sun the past couple of days but I was'nt about to leave the belts outside while were at work all day. the ESB belts are around 98% dry. when you get them, put them in the sun for a few hours and they will be good to go. below is the only photo I know of that kinda shows you how to attach the straps. if you have better ideas, please share them with us.

    Many thanks again guys,

    Ben.

    contact Whistle8mp, he might be doing a run soon. I won't be doing anymore for a while. I have to finish my ESB Fett and I have a lot to do at the moment.

    thanks,

    Sorry you will not be doing another run for a while Ben, but totally understandable. Well, these turned out great. Think I will try the paint method on mine - that seems to work pretty well.

    BTW - the strap attachment pic is not showing up for me.

    Got my belt today. I figured these were gonna be good judging by the pics, but now that I have one in my hands, IMO it confirms what I posted earlier. I gotta say, that in all my years at TDH, this is definately the best girth belt I have ever seen offered for an ESB suit!!!! He nailed it!!!! Thanx Bounty!!
