    Oct 3, 2013, 2:20 PM - Helping attaching Hard pieces to soft. #1

    Hey Guys,

    I am working on my Pre-viszla build and have the hard pieces finished:

    I have begun to start looking into how I can attach these pieces to my flight suit and vest. Any suggestions?

    Thanks for you help!

    One of the most durable methods is to attach short bolts to the hard parts and then put grommets in the soft vest. You can then put a nut or a pressure washer to hold them in place. You can see pictures of this method in my build thread. Others have used rare earth magnets to great success and of course the old standby...velcro. Look around and you will see alot of great methods. Find one you like and run with it!

    I checked out your post. Are those bolts just glued directly down?

    No worries, I am starting to figure it out! The holsters are from P.R.o.P.S. The guy there is super nice and helpful.
