Okay folks, first things first, this is my first time posting here at the dented helmet, and I must say that I am impressed at all the helpful hints I've found, however, I am looking for cheaper, yet efficient materials to make my armor out of.
I know Sintra is the most popular, and I've already begun to think about buckets, but what about sheet metal. I'm curious to see if a certain gauge of sheet metal would pass as decent armor. I am also concerned about how it holds certain kinds of paint. Do you all know of a cheap reliable material short of sintra? Thanks for the help, guys, and gals!
