    I believe he's referring to the people who come take trash from our garbage cans every once in a while.

    Looks like you are off to a good start! I did a trash can set too so if you've got questions, ask away. Good luck with your kit! I'll be watching your progress.

    lol yeah i was talking about the guy in the trucks that get the stuff off the curb So far so good on things just a few bumps but I have figured out a few things from the trial and error(mostly error, lol) but I figure thats what "from scratch" is all about right. Biggest thing I have had a hard time finding is template of some kind of the upper(thigh) leg armor and shin armor. I do have some more pics i need to put up. Works picked up some and my nephew saw that I was making my own armor and now he wants some for halloween, lol. So I'm trying to ballance my time for all those right now, lol. Yeah the trash can method seems to be a good choice starting out but there's not enough trash, lol.

    Yup, I'm in the middle of soccer season so my life is insane as well.

    Check the "Jango Armor Templates" for leg armor : http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/f28/w...mplates-23194/
