measure once cut twice... aww crap


so I purchased one of tk409's chest light display things (is there an actual name for it?) and instead of putting 8mm b/w the upper and lower boxes, I put 4mm.


so, my armor is all fiberglass... what can I use to widen the 4mm gap to 8mm?

How about a small strip of 1/8" sintra? That is about 3mm. Use a gel type super glue to set it and more glue or automotive spot putty over the seam and sand it smooth.

Or can you glue a piece of the fiberglass part back in??

I have used a dremel tool with a small high speed cutting bit. It works wonderful. Just becareful and take your time.

I'd second the epoxy putty.
I've used it to correct cutting errors and to smooth out joints in poorly made components with acceptable success...
