    You can cut and trim it just like ABS plastic. I've found it rather easy to cut.

    Is this armor flexible enough to go snow skiing in?

    I stopped at the local WalMart to pick up one of these, and they didn't have it. Grrr. They had the smaller one. I'll have to check another WalMart that's nearby.

    There goes John recruiting for the White Commando Posse team again.

    AFettFullofDollars- That was a bloody brilliant idea, and it looks great! Wish I would've thought of that before I bought my first set of armor.

    this is a great idea for those of us who don't have much money, I was thinking also about coating mine in fiberglass to give it alittle extra weight and some extra protection. Any ideas?

    What an intensely resourceful idea. That armor looks great.

    My only concern would be getting paint to bond well to that type of plastic. I guess it doesn't need any paint if you go with the white mando thing.

    Thanks for all the kind words, and Judz, that was a concern of mine too, but the plastic that these trashcans are made from isn't that 'slick, shiny' kind. It has a matte finish to it. I took some really fine grain sand paper and went over it once, and the paint adhered beautifully. Unfortunately I ruined my prototype set while experimenting with some vest attachment techniques.

    Well you just saved me a good 30 bucks on Sintra! But how do you plan on denting it?

    Re: TRASH CAN ARMOR! *PICS*

    I am definately doing this, the cheep-ness of sintra (compaired with aluminium) and the durability of aluminium!
    I'll buy my cans next time I'm at the store!

    Re: TRASH CAN ARMOR! *PICS*

    OK. See what you started?
    Now I just need to find some templates I like (and can figure out how to print properly.) After a couple calls to some local sign makers, I was able to find a place willing to sell me some sintra for the other armor parts. (I finally started telling them it was for an art project. Then the guy became really helpful telling me how easy it was to shape when you use a heat gun.) I have a week of vacation next week, so I should have some progress pics.

    ABSOLUTLY BRILLIANT!

    I think this might be the answer two my size problem. I've been having a really hard time finding armor that fits a fat guy like myself. Now...all I have to do is find a trash can that's round and wide enough.

    I think, my friend you may be responcible for a new technique that will help hundreds if not thousands of fat people achieve their Mandalorian Armor Dreams.

    We should call this the Dollar Technique.



    Now, I just have to find templates my size.
