Well for starters if you are going to do your armor in titanium you had better be a billionaire like myself. Second why not go with platinum instead of titanium? Oh and I don't think that bullet proof glass is going to stop a laser from blasting you in the face. I would hire a robot to bend the metal for me. :eek:

Glad to read you've rethought the "bullet proof" thing:lol: And you might want to go aluminum on the armor if you desire metal....

You can use a nice 1/8" thick welders sheild lens for the T-visor like most if not all use.

You'd stand a better chance at walking through hell with a snowball than getting that much titanium and shaping it into armor.;) The government has some influence on where it goes to and has even been complaining on all the marketed razors with titanium.....Boba Fett armor might not get their vote.

the closest your gonna get to real armor is using steel itll take a blow from a baseball bat the other one is the visor why not just use shatter proof glass i had a sheet of it in the back yard you could through bricks at it all day i even hit it with a sledge hammer it didnt smash eventually it did but it took about an hour and thats using the sledge hammer

Can I ask why you'd need a titanium, steel or what have you type of armour with a bullet proof visor?

It's not exactly gonna be light and easy to move in, especialy after a few hours trooping or at a con, impressive as it may be. There's also little that can be done in metal that can't be done in plastic or fiberglass. Now if you want a set that can be used to rob a bank... well that's different, although your getaway vehicle will need some serious grunt to cope with the weight of you in armour!

What i reccomend is to use a lightweight sheet metal of some sort. The best way to get that for very cheap, is to go to a local school that has a welding class. They're boundto let u go through their scrap yard for free. :)
