    Hi guys.
    After a long postponement on my fp v.3 armor trimming, i have now dared myself to start the trimming process. In my first attempt i marked the inside of the chest armor plate with a pencil, i set the mark at 3mm (1/8" i think). I looked at the reference material that i have, but none of them shows the back of the armor. I have the feeling that my armor needs to be trimmed down some more, but i don't want to do it before i can confirm that it is supposed to be less than what i have.
    Is there anyone out there that could take a pic of their inside armor piece so i have anything to compare mine to?.
    I'll post my attempt.

    Looks pretty good to me bruv, I have seen some that leave too much on theirs?
    If you look at the ref material it does not look very thick, so your onto a winner IMO...

    btw... I have FP V3 armour
