I decided to have a crack at making my armour today:

Open to comments/feedback.
Your armour is looking good, I've also made a set of Aluminium armour, it's great to work with. I made the blaster dents in the armour with a 22. rifle, you should try it. Keep up the good work.Attachment 47424
Ha! It would be great to be able to make the dents that way but I'll just have to bash them in with something I think.
Thanks for the comment.
looks great bill, howd you shape it pics would be good to see if you have any, got that same jigsaw in that same case ,go the ryobi:thumbsup
Thanks. I just put it in the vice and bent it with my hands
The trick is to open the vice so that the armour is resting on the bit you want bent.
