    Hello everyone,

    I hate to sound like a noob. But are there any forums on how to attach the armor to the suit? Snaps? Velcro? Also, are there any tutorials on how to put on the Boba Fett armor? Thanks for the help.

    If you look in the wiki section, there should be 2 or 3 tutorials for attaching armor to the flak vest. Velcro and the 'chicago screw' method seem to be most popular nowadays. As well, look for a thread called "Dressing a Bounty Hunter in 40 Steps". It's a pic by pic tutorial on how ILM dressed and test-fitted the original screen-used and pre-pro suits, contributed by RafalFett.

    Use the search up top. Daz bolt . It's the best I've found. I use Velcro and magnets now but want to go back to the bolt method.

    putting it on usually requires assistance of at least one person.

    I could manage everything even the JP with BBF harness with a couch as my assistant. TOUGH to do though.

    The first time I put on the suit with an assistant it took me about an hour to put on. Now I've got it down to roughly 15-20 minutes by myself. It's just figuring out the system and order.

    Yes a current video would be awesome. It just might have as many views as Gangnam style.

    That video is watchable but the audio is not in sync with the video and its kinda annoying. I agree that an updated video with some different methods would really help us new builders.
