 Belt/pouch/holster WIP - and my first WIP thread at that

I picked up some used speedloader pouches and some larger nylon pouches from a surplus store today.  I had a nylon duty belt at home and was eager to see how it looked.

The pouches (ignore the leather belt for now):



Pieced together at home.  Ignore the cat (because she's ignoring us, anyway).







I think the holster will hold a Westar 35, which is its intended purpose.

Things I need to do:
- remove the label from the holster.  It's old (but a veteran of an actual war), so I don't mind modding the heck out of it and painting if necessary.
- hide/remove the numbers from the large pouches

Do I need to alter the leather pouches?  They're definitely weathered.  Is the belt itself okay?  It's largely covered by the pouches.  I could always wrap cloth or some sort of cover across the buckle.  How about the holster?  Remove some strapping, spray it black?

Thanks.  This is all new for me, so your input is highly appreciated!

Yours in violence,
Slor
