Hi all

So i got around to re painting my armour that had a bad paint job when i bought it, reason why is because i want to try and match the boba maker paint job.

The collar is apparently boba maker yet it has fibreglass inside for reinforcement

The kidney and cod is boba maker and does not have reinforcement,

Do people add reinforcement ? Or is it better to leave it as is for a lighter troup ?

How safe/durable are these non reinforced peices

In regards to the cod/kidney plate I wouldn't do any reinforcing on them. If they are vac formed ABS they should hold up okay. Even if they were Sintra it would be okay. You want them to have some flex for ease of movement & if you reinforce them it will become rather rigid & restrict your already limited movement.

Depending on what Bobamaker armor you have, he produces fiberglass armor and he just recently started making ABS. So it may not be reinforced it may be how it was made.

I have Bobamaker armor and it is all fiberglass.

I Believe the Cod and Kidney are Vacume foamed, can you tell from the picures ?

Thats sound advice thanks :)

The kidney and cod have lables that say V3, they were bought reciently

The Collar armour is over a year old

Bm stopped doing fg a while ago, probably at least 1 to 2 years.

Yikes so my collar armour is over 2 years old

I wouldn't worry to much. I had my set of RKD armor, which is made from ABS I believe, squashed during a move and it held up to the pinishment no worries.
