Hi All,

I've been working on some metal boot spikes recently for my CA Boots. Let me know what you think.

I'm offering these through my website too so if you want a set give me a shout. I won't be able to get any out before Xmas as I'm backed up with Clone Trooper boots at the moment!

I'd really appreciate your opinions though! They are just held on with double sided tape at he moment, but will be held in with screws.

Cheers

Dan

You trying give me a relapse?!:lol: It was this time of year I got mugged outside my house before!:p

Don't worry buddy I have your pair just about ready to go. Just a bit more cleaning up, and all that's left to do is wrap them up with a pretty bow!

Hey I like those! They look real canon. Just outta curiosity, how did ya attach the spikes to the metal piece that attaches to the boot? Screws? Welding?

Hey,

I'm yet to update the website. It should be up in the next day or two.


The plates are held onto the boots in this picture with some double sided tape, but only for the picture, The actual spikes are going to be held onto the boots via screws.

Smart move. I've seen and heard of the spikes coming off when they were welded on.


Sorry, totally mis-read the original question!

The plate is going to be held in place by screws, but the spikes are attached to the plate with epoxy putty and 2 part epoxy. The two faces where the metal meets on the spikes and plate are roughened up first so that the putty and epoxy have something to grip to. They are very strong and I've tested the durability too.

Hey ppl. I now have a pair of these spikes and they are brilliant. I am going to be putting them on my boots this weekend and will take some photo's once done.

I really can't stress how beautiful these spikes are. Thanks for these Dan and well done on producing such lovely pieces of work. (y)
