    When you set the snaps you will want the CA glue as has been said, but I would highly suggest to get some accelarator too. It sets the glue instantly and allows you to put the snaps on very precisely.

    You can get some at trooperbay, and he delivers very fast.

    One thing to remember with hot glue is that while trooping, the temp on the backside of the armor gets pretty warm. The troop that I did in December for the Snowball Express was in 40 degree temps outside and my armor was still damp from sweat when it was over. If you are trooping in higher heats like we get here in Texas, your body heat plus the heat of the day may be enough to weaken the glue.

    I have seen several guys use hot glue on visors, and they fail at the most inopportune time.

    Just a heads up on that.

    Since we have ran down the glue rabbit path..........here is the stuff I use, and recommend

    2 Ounce Zap a Gap CA+ Glue | eBay

    Zip Kicker Accelerant for Zap a Gap CA+ Glue | eBay

    I have ordered from trooperbay several times and he is one of the few ebay sellers that I trust to order from, he is a 501st member and has fast service and delivery.

    Dynamic - That seems to be the builder's motto: "Slowly but Surely." Anyhow, I had to do a couple of "tweaks" on the Girth for you. I should be able to get it in the mail by this Friday or Saturday. Like the vest, it will be a passable placeholder until you get your hands on a leather one.
