It's been over 8 moths since I did anything on getting this done, but here I am! I have to get it done and become an official member by August. Can't go to CVI without being official, now can i?!
I got ahold of the ol' heat gun and did some re-shaping. The back pieces are the most dramatic change. It now conforms to my back. I have a vest but I am going to be completely remaking it. I found a better design now I just have to get some fabric.
I need to completely repaint the shins and get some industrial velcro and then get everything mounted.
I also got some kevlar lined leather gloves for super cheap. They are the best I've found yet!
So that's where I am. More to come soon!
