Thanks guys, i'm really proud to read your comments!:thumbup
Actually, Dark-Side already had them separated, wrapped, marked, etc.
I just threw them in boxes with some rocks and sharp pieces of metal and sent them off!
U.S. Customs did seem to give up from tearing them all apart after one set though.
Awesome guide! Just assembled mine about 15 minutes ago.
Loving the knee armor, Dark-Side!
Great guide. What glue do you recommend for the strongest hold? I had an issue with the right knee snapping at the glued joint because it was right on my knee. Also, do you know of any way to make one a bit wider, like with spacers or something

I have big legs myself, so I was worried about kneeling and them breaking or cracking. With Dark Side's, I haven't had that issue yet. If they were constantly cracking or whatever, I'd take a heat gun to either side and bend it out a bit more.
Just my two cents.
well, I recommend to use cyanoacrylate glue, any brand.
Do not use epoxy glue. It's not the best because the knee are in polyester resin.
About make them wider, you can use this fast tutorial(for both sides):
I suggest you use the second method just because you use the glue only one time.
Btw, when you add the straps, don't glued them on the lateral pieces. Just glue them on the frontal piece.
So, I know the real knee armor are just in 1 piece, but I also saw they were cracked.
In my knee, at the most you can break them where there is the glue. But you can always use the glue again and they are fixed without any evident crack.
