has anyone else used snaps to attach their armor to their vest? my armor is plastic and JB weld does not hold the second part of the snap onto the plastic. Anyone else had experience or Ideas?
YES, That works well also!Also be sure that there is no paint on the plastic surfaces you are joining. I use Devcon Plastic Welder. They usually have it at Walmart.
First be sure that the pieces line up properly to your body.
For mine, I installed snaps to the armor pieces, and then I put a little paint on the ends of each one and pressed it against the vest on my body. It leaves drill spots for the snaps on the vest.
I cut a small hole in the fabric, and put the female snap in place, and then hammered it in.I am not quite sure I understand how you got the female end on your vest GCN.
