It's time to attach collar to vest.
Just a quick update before : I changed the bolts because the head was to high.
So i use 6mm eyelets with 4mm bolts.
This is the new bolts
I put on them epoxy dough to have a stronger attachment.
And this is how i do to attach collar to vest :
1 - I put the vest on me and my wife put the cardboard pattern on the marks she made earlier with the real collar(see posts above)
2 - with sharp scissors, i make a hole ( never cut the vest, only spread the fibers of the vest). I use a bigger scissor and a bolt of the same diameter than the eyelet as a guide.
3 - This is theview of the back
4 - To Finish, you must have to secure the eyelet.
This is the tool i used and the result after hitting with the hammer.
5 - The 2 others...
6 - So finally, i can attach collar to vest :
I have just to cut the bolt at the same level than the nut.
I will use the collar to adjust the other parts of the armor (see next steps...)
