Dang, that's a good-lookin' vest! And the armor's okay, I guess.
Well rumor has it the vest came from the best..
To potentially head off some questions later, here is the answer to the obvious for some.
Yes. This is FettPride version 2 armor!!
Now before everyone starts madly PMing poor FP, I will explain how I came to own this armor before it’s available.
I had asked Chris for chest armor and he was kind enough to update the moulds at that time and instead of giving me version 1, which he knew would shortly be outdated, he sent me the first set of FPv2 chest armor!
I believe I am correct in saying that he will not produce any more of these just yet. He has other things to do at the moment.
I was very lucky to get this and I hope this explanation will stop this thread from earning FP some undeserved “FP plays favorites” feelings.
I am not a FP favorite…
Chris cant really count me as a favorite when I am new and barely have met anyone from these forums can he?
I am however, currently cooler than all you “version 1 people”
So indulge my newbie like joy in having something no one else (besides RS) has yet..

Thank you, thank you to FettPride who has saved a financially challenged youngling from longing for the next best thing and cursing his bad luck for narrowly missing out on it.
I will keep this updated with slow progress photos and hope that you all will critique it for me.
Also, would someone please PM me and explain how to improve my picture posting quality?:o
*Stits in corner and pouts*
I say we take Keegan behind the ol' woodshed and give him 'what for'.
That armor looks like it was made from a deranged set of sprinkler pipe, just because you own it....
All seriousness aside That looks really good, and the vest it's going on looks great too...you lucky devil you.
YOU SUCK! J/k color me jelous.
(Gives evil laugh and goes to sleep with a grin on his face...)
So how close to me do you live again? Hmm....
Show off! :moon
That armor is awesome man! You are lucky Bro!
I'm looking forward to when FP is ramped up and in full production!
I messed around with the Floquil Bright Silver on the abdomen piece. The dimond is like my test piece.
I'll finish the silver tomorrow.
Now all I have to do is wait for the Yellow Zinc Chromate to come from testors.
I still havent learned to post high quality pictures. Help?

Finished the silver paint tonight. Sharp-eyed viewers may notice I layed it on more thickly in some places than others. Though not really recommended I'm sure, it saved me some paint.
looks real nice! FP does some nice work.
Still testing colors...
Here's the Yellow Zinc Chromate on.
And I still hate you...Originally Posted by kbrosseau
I've been working out how to do the bumpy looking paint around the dents. I finally settled on just torching them and now I'll repaint that part
Nevermind all the yellow and silver; I've reworked most of it since this was taken. There is still alot for me to learn (by messing up). My only regret is that I have to "learn" on a FP product.
Lets just say I took the 70's ILM thing to heart and am treating this armor paint job like ****
