    thanx for the idea. i will look into that and see what length looks good.

    Wow. I guess its been a wile for progress. well good news. When I last posted my progress i just cut out the armor in metal. Well I've since bent them up and painted them. Still needs work in the weathering department. But here they are. Let me know what ya think.

    I'm not a 100% on this but i think it was 16 gauge I think still have all the scrap. the label was on it with the size. Ill check it out and get back to ya. It was defanetly the right price. OF course now i gata go out and get some more so i can do my shin and thighs.

    Ya I thought it would not only dent it but chip off the paint. It was a blast. Cant do that with plastic!
