    What sintra is/where to get it:

    As for what it's attached to, depending on which piece it is it's either attached to the vest or strapped on. Snaps, magnets, glue, elastic. Lots of different ways to attach armor. Use the search feature, browse threads. That'll help.

    Not sure how helpful this is, but for people just getting started with armor and things, i found rigid expanded pvc foam board (aka Sintra) at a national chain called Fastsigns that does displays and signs and was a 4x8 sheet for $45 bucks plus tax....don't know how the price compares to other sources, but in my neck of the woods, it was the only game in town, not to mention it seems like more than enough to handle any project

    I'm currently making mine out of 5 gal white plastic buckets available free at most grocery stores. 5 min epoxy glues them great so long as you scuff the surface up with coarse sandpaper.(cake frosting comes in them)

    When I bought my sintra I had a heck of a time locating the stuff in my city. I found mine not at a sign shop, but at the most unusual place I never would have thought of. An office furniture store that makes acrylic see through desk and chairs. You know, that fancy designer furniture. they supplied just about everything in 4 by 8 sheets only. They offered any color and thickness for about 40 dollars. A word of advise....where ever you find it, ask them to tape up the corners because I sliced up my headliner on my minivan when I was loading it in.
