    I took a screencap of the cod when Jeremy had the belts a little mixed up, you can see the upper damage.

    This ESB costume is going to be sick with accuracy!! I'm loving the updates and can hardly wait 'til you guys start to converge all the parts for final assembly. I only hope Jeremy realizes the gravity "his" costume will have, yet again

    Re: JB project / FP V3 armor

    OK...here is a step by step process on setting up the knees

    I will leave it up to FP to do a seperate thread as he is the expert on these knees

    below is the process I used

    Step 1

    locate your resin pieces FP included in your kit and place them into the correct knee. I suggest maybe adding some tape to hold them in place while you do the work








    Step 2

    hold resin piece in place while you drill your hole....MAKE SURE YOU USE A BORING DRILL BIT...AND MAKE SURE YOU HOLD THE RESIN PIECE IN PLACE....YOU WANT TO DRILL RIGHT THROUGH THE ARMOR INTO THE RESIN PIECE SO EVERYTHING LINES UP!!!







    Step 3

    make sure darts fit in hole...also you may notice some clean up you can do to smooth any rough edges after you drill

    just grab some sand paper and it will take care of any small issues from drilling the hole




    Step 4

    use a Dremel and cut off the end the screw you are going to use

    then drill a hole in your resin piece

    after hole is drilled then JB weld the screw into place






    Step 5

    attach darts to screws and make sure everything fits together



    Step 6

    remove darts PAINT your knees

    Step 7

    once knees are all painted up attach darts and then glue your resin piece into the knees to hold everything in place


    and as you can see JB's knees are all set and ready to go!!!

    Re: JB project / FP V3 armor

    you really have to match it to your Darts

    I suggest taking your darts to Home depot and matching the size of the darts to the bit

    Hey DM,
    what/ How did you treat the underside of the armor?
    Eg, the Bells may show underside when worn, is it silver?

    thx
