Ok, so I finally have things going on my ESB Fett. I am painting the armor this next week and I am preping my vest and I was planning on using the magnet method. I plan on using JB weld or GOOP to attach the magnets to the armor and then going inside the vest and attaching the matching magnets.
This way I can move things around, try it on, see how it looks, etc. Once I have the exact layout I'll mark their position on the inside of the vest and hand sew small closed pockets over each one. Nothing completely permanent, but enough to keep them from falling off, if I ever have to remove the armor for upgrades, repainting, etc.
My main question...how far away from my chest light circut board do these have to be? Should I check the magnification of one magnet to another ferrious metal and gage the distance and use that as my cushion?
I really don't want to ruin a set of $80 lights without adequite ressearch.
