I really love the chest plates as well, it's great to finally see that concept of yours starting to take shape! Will be watching this for sure. (And maybe I can sweet talk Arch into just laying out those templates and taking a picture for me...)

Thank you!

Ill make up some new ones quick and send them to you later today after work when I start my sanding. The more people who start to use this style, the better! ^-^

Vira, do you mind if I take your template and make a PDF to share? This way, people can print their own!

Nah, Vira does for figuring this out. ;)

Here's a PDF of her template. It should be pretty darn close to 1:1 with what she originally made when printed at 8.5 x 11" without page scaling. :)

Just printed it out, and it covers my plates perfectly. You did awesome in uploading it Arch! (and saved me tons of time! <3)

Finally got around to taking a picture of me with the plates on. I dont have the pieces bondo'd yet, but their sanded and I plan on getting to it at some point XD

What do you guys think of my spacing? (keep in mind their held up with scotch tape in the pic)

Dont mind my Derp face, my father made a joke and I always derp when I laugh XD

seeing it bigger then just from the cell phone the spacing itself looks good that one edge on your left side (bookshelf) seems to be out im not sure if its just a lack of adhesive or if you need the heat gun?

Now that you pointed it out my bookshelf does have quite a bit of lift when compared to the bed.

I think it might just be the lack of adhesive though, since I had tape on the other side, but not that one.

I don't understand the term bookshelf, but things are looking good!

Your spacing looks pretty good for a rough fitting, but I think your ab plate might be a hair too big. I think you could lose a little off the bottom, but it might just be the angle of the picture.

Great progress!
