Armor Construction / Re: WIP with Some Small Changes

There are a bunch of different ways you can close your neck seal. Some use simple sewing hooks that close the gap. I use for my neck seal two velcro flaps that are attached to the end of the neck seal and are simply pushed to the side after connected. Some permanently attach the neck seal to their flight suit. It comes down to what works best for you.

I didn't even think of using hooks.  I know exactly want you are talking about.  I feel so dumb, back to the cloth store.  Thanks again!

A cliffhanger? Seriously?! How does it turn out? I need to know!

I like your earcap magnet template idea. Definitely going to use that in the future.

With the Gorilla Glue Epoxy for your visor screws, do you have to sand/rough up the helmet contact point at all to get the glue to adhere? We are an E6000 household but the wait time for it to cure can sometimes put the brakes on momentum. A fast setting alternative would be nice to have.


Muahahahahaha.  Always a cliffhanger.  Gotta leave them wanting more!

Thank you for pointing out sanding the inside.  Absolutely! Rough up the surface a touch before applying anything!  Primer, glue, epoxy anything.  Always always always rough the surface to give whatever it is your applying a roughed surface to stick to.

Try the Gorilla Glue brand 5 minute Epoxy and you will toss that E6000 in the trash where it belongs. :)

I love watching buy'ce builds. These are what makes us... us. Each one is a separate, unique work of art. Can't wait to see this when the latex is stripped away.
