    My FP V2 Armor Painted AGAIN!

    So, as many of you know... after the acid rain incident of St. Patrick's Day in Boston and the spotting that occured all over my armor I've been out of commission as Boba Fett. This has been the longest I've ever gone since becoming a Fett costumer without my "baby". Since the paintjob was completely ruined on my armor I had to sand it all down to the bare plastic and start all over again. Something that was completely frustrating but necessary.

    Well... after much dragging of my feet and lots and lots of elbow grease, my armor is once again finished! YAY!!!!! Its a completely layered paint job and looks WAY better in person. Now I've only got to get my bucket finished since I sold my old one! :shock:

    Here's the pics:

    Did the acid rain affect any other members of your garrison during the parade?

    I jokingly refer to it as acid rain only because I don't know what else it could really be. My armor was sealed and everything and it still got spots everywhere. Our Vader apparently had issues as well. I'm almost wondering if we weren't sprayed with something in the parade and not from the light rain drizzle we got.

    I wonder what the effect of alcohol on the paint would be. Seriously, given the crowd..

    It looks great though. You need to repaint every now and then anyway

    If I were you, I would have wetsanded it with a sandsponge, then resealed it. I seriously messed up the cheeks on my Fett helmet once, and I wetsanded and then resealed it, and you can't tell anything happened at all.

    Great paintjob though, I can't imagine being without my primary costume for a long time! Actually I am now I have no Stormtrooper, which believe it or not is my preferred costume.
