Until I can get a more screen accurate plate I've decided to make trashcan back armor. The back plate is a bit tricky but I found a can that has the right basic shape. It's more of a rectangular trash can which works better for the curve of the back.
- I took the template and cut out the plate on the trash can using the same 'score and break' method in the "Trash Can Armor" thread.
- Heat the plastic, wear gloves so you don't get burned, press it to the can and as it cools it will hold shape.
- The lower portion of the back does not need to be heated and shaped. The trashcan curve is perfect for this fit.
- I'm waiting to cut the holes for the harness until I get it shaped just right. That way I'll be able to ensure that the straps are in the correct place on my back.
