    Question

    Is there any way to reshape fiberglass armor?

    I haven't tried it, but some folks say that you can use a heat gun (like a paint stripper). I was going to try the "oven method" from this old thread:

    Re: Question

    Heat guns the way to go...but remember to 'hold' the shape with tape or cable ties etc, or else it'll reform to it's original shape.

    I use this method on my Gauntlet Clamshell bottoms as they were slightly too wide for the uppers. Worked well enough.

    Hope this helps,

    Stay safe,

    Tim.
