8/24/11: Pepping complete!
First off I'd like to thank Roadwarrior for his pep files, as all of them in this project are his. Anyways I completed my first pep and I wanted to know what you guys think I'm doing right and wrong.
So I was planning to build all of the pep first and then fiberglass it and all that all at once, I noticed not many people do that so is there a problem with it or is it just personal preference? Also, I made the usual noob mistake in the scaling process as I was too excited to build it to do serious measurements. After building and re-measuring I noticed I made it anywhere from 20-50 mm too short, lol, luckily it now serves as an extra piece to test fiberglassing, resin, and bondo on so I ruin that and not the real armor. So I really am so confused with the scaling that I'm doing sort of a trial and error approach and its not working well as each piece takes like 4 hours to make. Hopefully I'll figure this mess out soon.
Hopefully I'll have most of the pep work done by the end of spring break ( like 3/4 of it) as it seems like all of my friends are going on vacation so I'll be bored out of my mind. Clearly that didn't happen by a long shot, lol.
