How do you plan on mounting the plates to the vest? The ab plate really could use a bit more of a curve on the sides. But as Van said once it's mounted to the vest the material will be puled close to the plate and it will be fine.

I'd suggest snaps or bolts for mounting. Velcro might work but because of the ab plate you run the risk of the ab pulling away from the vest and driving you nuts.

If you wanna carry the lightsaber hilt, it has to be as a trophy. You're gonna have to make it look REALLY damaged, like cut in half & blown up damaged
The hilt is already semi weathered and I am actually working on exposed wiring and a lot more char I will post an updated picture as soon as I get that and the weld on my plates painted up. The plates will be mounted with button snaps to make sure they won't be going no where . do you think a little hit with the heat gun will mess the paint up ?

You could get some interesting weathering with a heat gun

You could get some intereting weathering with the heat gun, and if you don't like it you can always repaint.  I would suggest heating from the back of the piece, that will probably damage the paint job much less than coming at it from the front.

THAT IS PRETTY.  If I didn't know better I would say it was welded on.  Glad the blue suggestion worked.

Heating the plates to get the bend in the ab....move the plates up first as Niabi said and see how it looks. Once the plates are positioned properly and secured to the vest everything might look fine. But have one last look at the plates before securing them to the vest. Measure twice, cut once, so to speak.

If the ab still looks like it might need some bending I'd recommend always heating plates from the inside. This will help prevent unwanted distortion and unplanned weathering. I learned this lesson the hard way  :-[

The little notch looked like a mess up at first, then I saw that it's part of the shape. I dig it vod,  it's coming together nicely.
