    Interested in ESB if you use thicker, smooth-grain leather.

    Also interested if you offer a white vinyl version I could paint brown!

    I would be interested in an ESB if its color is accurate as well as all the sticking and such. My belt now is good but a big too light for my taste.

    How can leather be "accurate" when the screen used belt was not leather?

    Thats why he asked about the white vinyl belt...the screen used belt was not real leather.

    That's exactly why I asked if white vinyl might be a material option. You did mention a prototype style option; I assumed you meant a super trooper style belt by that.

    If you use a smooth surface non-textured non-grain leather, I'm still very interested. It would look like vinyl...

    How do you think the white vinyl was painted to leave the stiching still white?

    The vinyl has a slight texture btw.
    F4R; wiser men than I have proposed it had to do with the thread type. I just supposed it didn't take well and the thread, being the high points, easily had the paint wear off

    Very carefully.

    Keegan, when you say that the vinyl has a slight texture, do you mean the screen used belt, or vinyl 'fabric' in general?

    The actual screen used belts had a slight pebbled texture. However, not any striations like most faux leathers do.

    Looking at pp2 pics which seem to be the earliest pics of the belts used after they were painted. As the pp1 belt isn't the same to me...its thread was white. And esb it was white so Yeh the paint and the thread may not have interacted well...Deffinately need to figure it out though if you go white vinyl you want a thread that won't take paint. And a paint to use and all can't just throw this together and not have a plan.

    Well im not trying to throw anything together. I'll leave it to others to figure out. Some people have the skills and if people want it closer, I may have some input. But sourcing actual materials is not my strong suite.

    Maybe the stitching was pulled from the belt, painted, re-sewn and then reassembled???

    I dont THINK so but possible...If I could disect the belt Id know lol....but its possible I guess...depending on how they were made they could have hand stiched the belts with waxed thread...which wouldnt take paint...Im going to stare at alot of pics tonight at work while Im bored out of my mind...

    Yeah iv'e been there, before i started work on mine i looked at every image of belts between pre/pro 1 and 2 plus ESB, i'm happy with what i ended up with, vinyl is the way to go IMO.
    Also the belt i made was stitched after i had painted it with a humbrol mix, then lacquered.
