    Sep 28, 2007, 1:56 PM - Question about ESB Girth Belt ??? #1

    Hi Guys,

    I need some expert advises here ... I have a doubt and I want to knwo what do you all think.

    I'm not 100% sure but looking at some ESB pics, it seems like there is no vertical "cords" in the center of the belt... (with vertical cords I mean those raw of cord that keep the horizontal/main cords together)...

    Here we have some of the references WE ALL HAVE SEEN tons of times







    I cant see that vertical cords in the center, but not sure... what do you all think ??? Would be a good idea to removed it and then dye it ? to get a nice and accurate ESB girth belt ???

    Here you have some pics of what I did with mine:
    What do you think ???

    Look closely at the pics you posted.
    The vertical lines are present,
    just hard to see as the original girth is made by a different manufacturer than yours.

    Depending on the materials used in the girth, if the threads used to do the vertical "gathers" are a different type than in the main cords, they'll take dye differently and give more of a contrasty appearance.

    yeah, Slave1pilot's right, you should have left it alone. besides, that belt you have is a ROTJ color. the belt I'm doing for you will be a burgundy/wine color.
