I dunno that's one of the last two peices I need as well ( for my custom) but it seems a bit more challenging to me

I've made a couple of back plates using the WOF templates using sintra and you have to have a heat gun or another way to really heat it up to get the right shape on the sides..boiling it and holding it above the boiling water to catch the heat coming off of it will make shaping it very difficult but it can done with a lot of re-heating...unless you have a very big pot

Well heres mine made from the templates. What i did have to do is trim the neck area a little as it pressed against my neck too much

I guess we need to know what you mean that your backplate didn't work? You trace it, and cut it out. You then have to heat and bend to shape. That is really the hradest part. Hope this helps

Yeah, the boba backplate has a tab that comes up behind the neck. But you said you were getting another one right?

I understand now :lol: :p

I cut the tab off and trimmed mine further into the neck area, it pushed against my neck too much once attached to the collar plate. I will be getting another set soon, just waiting to see if a locally sourced set will become available first.
