Sonik, thanks for your hard work on this. Can't wait to get mine!
Sonik, great to see the leap!!! when i get it, it must be another big milestone for me on the way to completion
Glad to hear you guys are chuffed.
I donno wot chuffed is, and it sounds REALLY uncomfortible, but if it means "excited" then ok, that's wot I am! Chuffed! LOL
Essentially.... lol Although, it does sound awfully close to "chaffed". So, there's that. :P
hi, sorry i havnt been around for a while... but is this still open for another order?
please let me know asap
Any news or update. Should be close now.
Still need to sew the straps and add the grommets ...
Yep theres still room.
Yay for sewing, I will be your seamstress gentlemen
Just thought you guys might like to see what the belt color looks like on both styles with both coats of stain and dry...
ROTJ on the left / ESB on the right
that, my friend, looks perfect!!
Awesome!!! You guys opinion matters alot. So it eases my mind, as I am a worrier by nature.
Auch! that ESB is looking sexy!
Yaaaaayyyy progress!! lol
Those are looking very nice indeed. I can't wait.
throw some straps on those suckers, and ship em' out!
Buy more girths!
Those belts are looking wicked. Kudos on all the hard work Bro.
Sign me up for your next run. I need an ESB. I wear a 36 jean size so does that mean I need a 38 or 40 inch belt?
No way for ,e to be sure, mate. Go back and read through the thread and you should find something to help ya make an informed decision. I would guess size 38 Just lemme know when you decide on the size. Thanks, bruv.
Paypal addy is... firstname.lastname@example.org
How'r they comin'?
haha, i also cannot wait to see the ROTJ ones to come
Any openings for this run or a next? I'm looking for an ESB belt (girth size 34, jeans size 30-31). Thanks.
Gonna finish em this weekend?
Got mine (ordered without strapage). I hear it looks great. I haven't seen it as I am in Toledo, Ohio at the moment. Will be home Monday night.
They woulda been done already, but we have to use the sewing machine at the campus craft shop and the guy who runs it got sick so its been closed all week.
Run-on sentence FTW
How many times do I have to tell you child labor...the kids woulda had this done already. Lol...No worries bud, howd last night go for ya?
LOL.... It went okay. Really good vibes and my DJ set was flawless. We're a new club, so unfortunately, still working to pull in a decent sized crowd.
Wait, so you shipped them? Or just BBF's cuz it doesn't have straps?
Just BBF's cause he has no straps, bruv. Sorry.
NP. Just making sure.
hey dsonik1, remember how I had to sell off a bunch of my parts just to pay bills? I got a job now and am finally stable, so I intend to eventually finish it. so if you haven't worked out anything with my belt, I'll still take it. if not, no big deal.
You're good bruv! Hit me with a pm. I have sme fett stuff you may want to help ya get back on track.
sme? (still not up on all the latest hip acronyms... )
some he meant some stuff lol
Aha... thanks F4R.
By the way Sonik- I'm ordering my MOW jetpack this weekend and it will be between you and him for my last piece of the Fett puzzle... you don't want to be last do you??? LOL
(you know I'm just busting your chops right bro? )
The suspense is killing me
Woulda been done during spring break, but the guy at the craft shop on campus has been sick for two weeks. Cant win for losing. So hopefully, this week. All thats left is those **** dirty straps and shipment can begin. lol
YAY!! Here's or hoping!! Can't wait!!!
Are you still taking orders?
Sonik, that is exciting news indeed, hope that guy gets better real soon i cannot wait to put the girth belt under my BBF ammo one
Soooooooooo, are we close to shipping on these yet? I have a string of big troops coming up.
Yeah, I have a troop coming up, too.
ready to ship?
From what i have heard the guy is still sick.. or maybe Sonik had new updates.. dont know for sure..
He's working very hard to get these out to us guys! hang in there!
Paypal and PM sent!
Hey guys, just wanted to give you a quick update. Half of the girths' from the first run are sewn, and the other half will be done tomorrow. Just thought I would let all of you anxious ones know what was going on
Lol...nice. I kept telling sonik if you guys had put the kids to work on them they would have been done and the mandos wouldnt have gotten restless
Sweet! So that's the last thing? Then they ship out?
**** those child labor laws! thats it... i'm moving to tatooine...
sonik, i sent you a PM, i am very sorry to provide wrong size to you, i am not as big as 3'8'', actually 3'2'', not sure still get time to correct it b4 they sew if not, that is ok... thank you for the update!! have a great day!!!
No problem darth, I fixed it. TJD, just have to install the grommets, then shipping will commence.
Soooo how we doin'? Got a big string of big troops coming starting the end of next week.

All grommet-ed up?
Sonik, any exciting news about the start of the shipment
PM sent mate
Alrighty guys, been tryin to keep from broadcasting this stuff for a few reasons.. but seein as how you've been waiting forever, thought you deserved to hear it.
I had wanted to have the grommets installed and shipment started yesyerday. On Tuesday or Wednesday of last week I started experiencing some pain in my abdomen and lower back. I tried to ignore it and thought I just had an upset stomach. I ignored it as best I could and even trooped (in alot of pain) as a TK on Saturday. By Saturday night, the pain was almost unbearable and I started urinating blood (TMI, yet?). Mary essentially forced me to go to the ER. They did a CT scan on me, introduced an IV, took some blood for lab tests, and gave me pain meds. I was let loose from the ER at 8am Sunday morning. The Dr told me that I was definitely passing a 5mm kidney stone and that pending lab results (which I should have by the end of the week) he was concerned about the possibility prostate cancer, which would explain why someone who never gets sick has been sick every time I turn around it seems. I've been on pain meds that have had me floored. I passed the stone today and the pain is at a manageable level so that I think I can lay off the meds so I am coherent enough to get these done and on their way. I know a few of you really need these for troops the first week of May and I am trying my best to get you guys stuff out ASAP. I sincerely apologize fro the inconvenience and truly appreciate how patient and understanding you all have been.
Dude, feel better soon. We're behind you bruv.
hi, Bro, i had the same pain ( caused by kidney stone ) back couple years ago and i know how it tastes... it was really bad and you did not want to experience it twice... So Plz have a good rest and recover soonest, no worries about the stuff for me, Your health first!!! all the best
ouch! I bet it feels good to have that thing out.
Thank you very much for the update and more importantly, I hope you feel better soon.....
Thanks, guys. Unfortunately, this is not my first stone. At one point I was passing 2-4 a month for almost 2 years. It had been awhile since my last bout with these, and this pain was more intense and centered differently, so I didnt think thats what it was. As for the big C, I'm not really scared or worried. Mary is a wreck, but I've also ridden in that rodeo before, as well. So, I figure if thats what life needs to hand me next, then thats what it hands me and I can hack it. I only worry about it inconveniencing others. But, hopefully, the tests will come back clean, and I wont have to deal with it.
Derek..... all I can say is "Thank you, bruv. Very much."
Bro Please get better... if there is anyway I can help out, let me know ok? Out of curiosity... how do you get a kidney stone? You can PM or tell me on FB... I don't want to derail your thread here. Get better soon. These girthbelts are TOP KNOTCH!
No problem. Stress, too much protein, caffeine, or dairy and a pre-disposition are common causes.
i hope you get better soon and please dont feel rushed to start mine, your health is always the most important thing and that comes first.
Hopefully it will be a one and done, and not just the begining. If your still taking orders I'd be intrested in picking up a RoTJ 38.
Have a good one,
