Elastic to Plastic on armor/knees for Jango.

    Elastic to Plastic on armor/knees for Jango.

    Hey...

    Does anyone have any suggestions for what sort of stuff to use to attach my elastic straps to the inside of the armor for the leg and knee pieces for my Jango?

    JB Weld? Friendly Plastic? Hot Glue gun?

    I am new at this, so be gentle.

    Thanks,

    JP in ATlanta

    Are they fiberglass or sintra?

    if they're sintra, you could countersink a rivet and fill it over smooth. If your using fiberglass and strengthened the inside with an aluminum strap you could attach it to that before you epoxy the aluminum in. You could use a snap and epoxy half to the inside. Plenty of ways.

    Actually I had a brain fart.

    Sticky back Velcro solved my problem.

    Blargh.
