    Dec 17, 2005, 4:57 PM - shaping the backplate #1

    To those of you who made your own sintra armor, how did you go about shaping the backplate? It's too large to fit in a pot or pan of water, and I don't have a heatgun. Any suggestions?

    you need a heat gun or something that can bend it into place maybe a blow dryer would work.
