Hi Taco, PM and Paypal sent. Thank you,
nice one taco
Hey Taco, I'm awaiting payments from a few people. Once that's done I'll send you payment for my belt
how exactly do we measure ourself for this fancy here belt?
Just a quick update........
Took my first look through the box of leather......WOW just WOW. In all my years of working with thin weight calf skin leather I have never gotten any like this! Normally calf skin is very smooth, which is good but the stuff I got in has a light grain on the surface. It is what gives leather its look and feel most of the time you see it. Lets just say that when the run is over, I'm gonna redo my own belt! So for those of you who are on this list, your in for a real treat.
Cash on the way soon, just need to get the $$ in my account:-)
Update: I just got back from Tandys to pic up more supplies for the run of belts. One of the new things I learned recently is that the prices did go way up on alot of things in the store...almost everything. But I want to keep the prices the same as the last run which they will. Owen who is the manager here, always gets the inside info on price changes. I will post a pic of what I'm talking about in a minute and show you what I mean. This means that this might be the last time I do ammo belts at the price I'm currently offering. Theres no way for me to tell what may change and by how much. I can only tell you so far that I just paid $10 more on a quart of dye, $75 more on a box of scrap leather. After looking at my receipt and comparing it to last years, I just spent about $140 more than last time, and theres still a few more things I need. So if you really need a belt just get with me. I will continue to do belts till I'm completey done with the run. Thanks..
I will have the funds tomorrow bro! I'm pumped about this belt!
Paypal sent brother!
Hey Eric, If you can't find a piece in your area let me know what ounce your looking for how big you need it. I have been noticing really big pieces in this box. If I got one big enough I just send you one if you need it.
When are you starting to make the belts taco ? im a little puzzled here
Belts are actually in production already, first 5 or 6 will go out monday, your belt stornshadow was already done but wanted you to get the nicer looking leather as well so I'm redoing another for ya. I'll give pics shortly.
Oh ok let see ,when you got the pics up taco
Heres two quick pics of the first batch thats drying. You can see the flaps are two different shades of brown. The light browns are ROTJ's. The other pics are the box covers drying. I also have ROTJ box covers drying as well that are not pictured. The first 5 belts or so will go out monday morning.
Will this be the esb belts going out on monday taco like mine ??
Yes yours will ship on Monday
First thread updated for those that were interested in trades.
Payment sent for ESB belt. Thanks again, Taco
PP for Boba ROTJ :thumbup
can't wait to get mine!!!
I'm pretty excited for it!!! Already ready to ship!? WOW! Fast work Taco!
Quick update - Some Belts went out and some belts got done after mail man already went by. Should have had more done by now but I've got a little delay. I knocked over some black dye off my table and is splashed on most of the belt straps. I have to go to Tandys in the morning and get one more hide and redo the belts. Its should only be a one day delay. Thanks everybody. Also there have been quite a bit of drop outs on the list, with a couple of add ins. Some of you have informed me about dropping out, for those who have not informed me yet, please do so this week. Thanks again.
"-- I'm pretty excited for it!!! Already ready to ship!? WOW! Fast work Taco!"
Yes your belt will go out tomorrow morning. Your belt strap did not get in the dye splash zone...
Belts are going quickly, normally I have only had time to do about 3 a week but I've had no distractions lately.
Did not get in the dye splash zone? What does that mean heh
I knocked over some black dye off my table and is splashed on most of the belt straps.
It says mine is ready for shipping. Looks like I survived the dye splash zone too.
Thanks again, Taco
Final payment reminders have been sent out.
mine got splashed..............
The Legend of Tacos dreaded dye spill of 2009 has begun. Where were you when it happened?
Sorry, just trying to make light out of a dark situation. My sympathies to the families that were affected by this tragedy.
This is Stacy...she gave her life so that you all could have ammo belts,...and burgers, and milk, and cheese, and ice cream, and butter, and steak, and..**** what a giver!
Im still laughing! Praise Stacy! The almighty provider!
Quick true story - I was in downtown San Antonio near the Alamo and there was a cow there for some show. I got near it to pet it. (honestly I was thinking she was going to make a great cowhide rug one day) She turned, got one look at me and MOOOOO'ED and ran! No one really knows why but maybe she smelled death from me...lol
Haha, Taco... you are the grim reaper to them. I would run to if I saw someone who was notorious for making ammo belts out of humans haha. Or maybe she didn't want to be a ROTJ belt, she would much rather be ESB hahaha
hahahah, I remember I got hassled once because my ammo belt was real leather. Ran into some hippie vegan; the Fett never loses.
for all you vegans out there.
for every animal you don't eat, i am going to eat three!!!!!!!
For every three mrbungle eats, I will eat 5! Can never pass up a good steak mmmm
Is it too late to get on board for an ESB?
no its not too late
i want one of these so bad. stupid tuition and credit card debt.
but if someone bought the fx tk helmet i was selling in the cargo hold.....
I just received my "splash free" belt and WOWIE WOW WOW! This is so awesome! Thank you so much Taco! Incredible quality! Everyone who gets a chance to get one from Taco should not think twice about picking one up. Beyond Satisfied!
Thank you for your kind words. I'm glad you like it.
Update: I will be updating the list with more progress tonight. I did not realize that it was going to be a holiday today so I will get belts out tomorrow morning.
Thank you to all that have committed in a timely manner.

I'll be watching the cargo hold then. I really want to get one of your belts. Bummed about having to jump off this run :-/
Got some more belts out and some more ready to go out, I hope to finish at least two more by tomorrow. I'm gonna make a push for the remaining belts to be done by this weekend. As long as I don't get anymore distractions.
Belts are coming out great! Everytime I finish one I feel like the Michelin Man, I hug it good by..lol.
got mine yesterday, great work. thanks alot.

You are the few remainder unpaids. Due to supply's remaining if I can not get payments in by the 25th, your names will be removed from the list. It has been 28 days+ since you asked to be put on the list, I am allowing it to go 30 days.
First post has been updated with the new layaway plan that some of you have requested.
For those that are still on my unpaid list, this may be an option you want to go.

nice work Taco ,pleased with the belt ,minus the mishap
Glad you like it stormshadow. Again I apologize for the glue mishap. Let me know how the idea gave you works out.
sure will Taco
I'm interested in the layaway plan, I'll PM you later tonight:-)
Man, you're really going out of your way to help us out! You tha man!
Taco, I received my belt and it's astounding!!
I was showing it to my cousin who happened to be here and while I'm talking i lift the flap to unsnap it ( forgetting that it doesn't quite work that way) and wind up standing there like a little kid who broke their new toy!! A little hot glue seemed to do the trick, but, alas, could not mend my broken ego after being such a fool...
Thanks very much (and the EE-3 strap is sweet too!)
You may wanna try super glue gel, it works very well, just hold for a few seconds and you should be good.
Things should go alittle faster now that I got my new clicker die in for the pouch covers. Think of it as a heavy duty cookie cutter.... no more cutting by hand!
Oh wow, fancy!
oh, and you should have a package arriving today
if you did not order a 99 cent taco belt then you are a sucker. his belts rock and i love mine!!!!!!!
Got my belt today! This is really really good!!! Get one now!
Slabfett I need an address
Oh, forgive my ignorance, but are the belt boxes in any way functional? I mean, if they're form blocked, is there any way to persuade them to hold battery packs/small speakers/etc?
Not that it matters, the hip pouches would serve the same purpose... just wonderin'...

Hey Taco, did you get that last PM I sent you?
Murphoid you mean the one with you address?
Hey Taco, got the belt today! It is FANTASTIC! Your cape is done and could have been sent out Saturday, but if everything goes to plan, I have a photo shoot lined up for tonight to take some really good product pics.
Sorry about the delay and lack of updates guys. Im having to redo lots of belt straps due to bad leather. After dying the leather it lightened up way too much and would not take the dye correctly so I had to return it being that it was bad and wait for more to come in. I'll have more updates soon
Just want to give a quick update. I got the new leather in and will start redoing the belts. It has really gotten tight with time since there was a big mix up at this years San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo. I was asked to do a show on opening day. They set up a large tent and sold tickets to the public and they watched me make ranger belts and some wallets and purses, and etc throughout the day which I had a mic on me telling everyone what I was using and how I did them, each time I finished one they would call out a number and the lucky person with that seat number won the item I made. It was suppose to be a one day thing but some one sold tickets for the whole week, and some. They expect me to come back everyday till this coming saturday and then didn't want to pay me extra. I told them thats not my fault, if they want me back they have to pay the same fee everyday. I knew they were going to have to pay me since they already pre-sold tickets. And the shows are an hour and half long with 100 people in each show, doing 5 shows a day. Tickets were $10 each. They are making out with $5000 a day times 10 days....yeah ...they can afford to pay me...lol. But not to worry guys I'm taking my fett leather stuff out there and working on your belts between shows.
Beautiful belts Taco:thumbup, I have heard nothing but praises about your quality and craftsmanship. If it's not to late I would love to get ROTJ belt from you. If possible, I know you have alot on your plate,but if ya can fit me in I would greatly appreciate it.
Yes I got yours combat, its gonna go out now. I havent been home in awhile. But I'm back
I should have more belts going out tomorrow. Things are going fine with the belts. Also I wanted members here to know that I have seen some ask about how can a member know about a vendor. I know we are not going to do anything here but on my website, you can now leave a review on the belts that I make. That way others can read them if they are thinking about. Please feel free to write what ever you may just keep it clean...ok. So if you have bought a ESB belt from me in the past please feel free to post here http://www.99centtaco.com/product_in...products_id=57, just click the review tab. Thanks, and if you bought a ROTJ belt from me, I'll be getting that one up in the next day or two.
Hey guys, I'm still getting belts knocked out, I have a few sitting here ready to go out but my car does not start anymore, I have a guy working on it, hopefully will be ready by tomorrow. Tried to see if the mail mail would take them but he said no that they are too large. Just letting you know whats up.

Taco or Fett members...
What is the best way to adhere the the ammo pockets to the belt?
You don't glue the pouches, you need to slide the belt strap through the back of the pouches.
I glued velcro on the inside of the ammo boxes with goop. Then I attached the other side of the velcro to the pouches. It is very secure, especially when you cinch the belt up.
I'll send my second installment in the morning; my paycheck doesn't post until after midnight tonight or else I'd send it now, but I don't want PPal to kick it back...
I haven't forgotten about my order, but the car insurance came out and a brake job took care of my disposable income recently...
2nd payment sent to ya...

Sorry it's taken me so long to put a review down as i received the item within the past weeks...
but all i can say is
these things rock.
Taco has done an amazing job.
this thing fits like a glove.
the closure was the exact length it needed to be and this thing sits on me perfectly
i couldn't be happier with the belt
this is insane. i wish every prop acquisition i've ever had would have been as smooth. not only is the quality of the prop perfect, he's one of the easiest guys to deal with. i didn't know if i'd be able to pick one of these things up immediately but he PMed me and we worked something out.
taco is pretty much the guy to go to if you need a belt or leather work. top notch!
Recieved the belt and straps today.
Belt fits perfect.
have any room to do a custom ESB pouches?
Speaking of custom....Do you ever do any custom colors? (Like Jodo Kast grey? )
I'll need pictures of Jodo's belt. If your looking to match a certain grey, it may be hard to find, but I'll try.
Jodo belt it is a boba ESb but a grey color. It is a comic book pic so I would say any grey would work.
Don't know if it was ever answered....just wondering where the belt should sit and what measurement one should take? Just your waist measurement? Thanks.
here is a PDF of the ESB pouches that I am looking for...
can it be done?
Dims are ruff
Hey Taco, haven't forgot about my order... will send 3rd payment on April 9th...
ok, no problem
******, gonna be a few weeks; found out my Uncle died, funds for bills and travel will be kinda spoken for until the 23rd...
I haven't forgotten tho, so please keep mine on the back burner or set aside until my finances are freed up a bit more...
Heya, I would like to know: Do you still make belts? Do you ship outside the USA? And if yes, is it possible to see any pictures?
Hey Taco, 3rd payment sent.
Got it, thanks!
