    Jan 13, 2009, 6:36 AM - Metal Armor Project #1

    Hello guys! I've gotten inspiration from guys like Wickedbeard who make excellent looking metal armor. The templates are from WOF. I've started on the right guantlet and backplate. For the guantlet I used 4 " aluminum vent tubing and for the backplate I used 19 guage aluminum sheeting. The guants are glued together using GOOP.

    The backplate is still too flexible so it must be reinforced with fiberglass. I will do that when it gets warmer so I can work outside. I am planning to update as I go along. Please let me know what you think and if you have suggestions. Thanks!
