I was cleaning out some suff earlier today and came across and older project which I had not finished (among the many others ) For some remember I was making a set of chest armor for paintball, I got up to making a vest, but I grew a bit after its completion, so It didnt fit.
ANYWAYS...I had used that "industrial strength" velcro you see at craft stores and such. The armor and everything stuck fine, and I thought It was holding good. I picked it up today, I left it sitting in a corner of my room, and I notcied that the armor pieces had slide down out of place, and the velcro left a trail like a snail. This glue gunk stuff is NASTY! Got some on my favorite shirt and sticks to anything.
I am merely warning anyone, cause I never subjected the vest to any heat or what not, and this spontaneously happend. So for now on, I think that I would stilck with the snap method for anyone doing chest armor to a vest. IMO, industrial strength velcro is more like crud at this point. Im sure someone has seen this before.
By the wat, Im thinking about doing something with the armor, not sure yet..
