    hey guys, for those of you doing ESB belts, i went by Lowe's this morning, and spoke with Sonik while there, and i really feel that the Antique Red is the color to go with for ESB...the Dutch Chocolate is just to brown...i honestly believe that there is a hint of red in these belts, and the Antique Red looks spot on...if anyone would be interested in going to Lowe's to see for yourself, make sure to look at the WATER BASED STAIN, in MinWax brand, and look at the Antique Red piece of wood there...thanks!
    I agree on the hint of red in the belt. There is definatly some of it in it, no doubt about that.
    Now to take Jeremy's costume as an example, on his girth it clearly shows the "redness" of the girth belt. As FettDad says i also think it would look loads better if it had the red in it. Also most reference pictures show it very clear.

    Maybe it seems a bit brown from the weathering, thats how i feel about it

    I too have seen the Antique Red at Lowe's. There is definetly some red in it. I think it looks better than the brown though. Just my 2 cents.

    LOL Okay guys. I cannot get the minwax in gallons, and buying buy the quart would make this ridiculousely expensive. So, I and Fettdad did some research and found colors in Olympic brand that will work, and as for ESB, are much closer to the screen color.


    Here's the link:
    http://www.olympic.com/stain_product...lors/index.htm

    Scroll down to "available colors", click on "download color card", once you're on the pdf page change the size in the top bar to 100% and you will be able to see the colors and read the names more clearly.

    ROTJ = Copper Henna

    ESB = New Pilgrim Red

    Once I get the thumbs-up from you guys on that ESB color, I will set the price, and begin taking payments. Thanks guys, I know it's been an ordeal, but I want these perfect, so you guys are gettin your moneys worth, or better.

    I'm pretty sure they will be $70 plus shipping. Just still trying to get everyone's feedback on the ESB color from Olympic. Guys, I need your help to insure the color is right. If I can get that straight, I would like to start taking payments on Friday. Would also be nice to make this an even 20 belt run.

    Okay, gents. I finished the straps on my belt. This is what I'll be doing to yours. The only difference, is that I'll be leaving a few more inches on the end, and including two extra eyelets (loose) in the box when I ship. This is just in case a few of you larger gents, need an extra eyelet. Comments/concerns?

    Well, I may actually change my order to a ROTJ after seeing the pics. Looks hella good man! Plus it'd be kind of nice to have pieces of my costume made by friends. I think the final prices will determine it for me, and I still do like the idea of dyeing my own and doing my own straps... I'm torn at this point and it's all your fault!

    Well, the price will not exceed $80 plus shipping. Honestly, after going out and getting the eyelets and tools, strapping and such last night, that price is cheaper than you can do it yourself, by about $20 odd dollars.

    Unfortunately, if you're wanting just the belt, you'd be better off just ordering direct from HorseloverZ.com, Cuase after I ship it to you, it's gonna end up costing you the same amount of money. lol

    Just lemme know either way.

    Morten, you're added.

    *First post edited. Updated with belt price and shipping costs. I will begin taking payment as soon as the ESB color has been confirmed and approved by those requesting ESB.

    If the ESB stain has not been agreed upon by Monday evening, I will take payment from those who have ordered ROTJ, as well as, those with ESB orders who have confirmed with me that they agree with the color Fettdad and I have picked, so I can start the run.


    I would personally like to take the time to thank each and every one of you. I take it as a great compliment that you have ordered these from me.

    Brother Sonik, let me know what color you end up choosing for ESB....was at the store today and left frustrated because I couldn't pick out the right stain for ESB. Maybe I'll just send the **** thing to you eh?

    Thanks, D.

    Daric posed a question to me in pm, that I felt pertinent to everyone....

    Daric: " What do you think the turn around will be?"

    Me: "Really just dependent on how quick everyone gets payment in to me. Then I have to put the belt order in to HorseloverZ (expecting 6-10 days until I receive them). Once I have them, I am shooting for a 1 week turn around time, or less. Rest assured, though, I will bust my butt getting these done and out to you guys. "
