« on: Jan 23, 2014, 01:16 PM »
Hi gang,
Here is the start of my kit. I cut some pieces out of foam to check size. I used the large template to start. Should i drop down to the next size or does this work. What do the pros think ?

that is my tshirt hanging out the bottom not my gut lol.

thanks for the input.

Looks big to me, but it also looks like you didn't tape it all the way on. Remember to tape down the contours, so we can get an idea of how the plates would lay against you after shaping. :)

I would say shave about 1/2 inch down on all sides of the chest and stomach plates and keep the collar where its at.

Yep. Basically, trim the chest to line up with the collar and trim the gut plate to line up with the chest (after it's trimmed of course).

I will. I'm excited and nervous all at the same time. So happy that everyone is here to help point me in the right direction.

Here is a paper version. I trimmed off a half inch on the chest and belly plate. I also put some tape to hold the sides down to see what the plates look like contoured to me. The spacing is about a half inch but ill adjust it more with the real plates. I put a little white square where my bellybutton is as a reference.


thanks for the input gang.

I would take a half inch off the outside of the plates, spacing is good  ;)

I agree with Kyp, about half an inch of the chest plates on the outside.
