    I made a custom suit of armor out of 16 guage steel sheets, but I am having some issues. The back and chestplate are separate pieces, that attach over the shoulders and under the arms. I bought some clasps from amazon, but they can't handle the stress. Any ideas on how to connect the pieces?

    I made a vacuum formed PETG visor for my MK5B helmet. What would be the best way to add a mirrored tint?

    I was considering using the Ipoly dye, however, that would only give me a tint and not any reflectivity. I've need other posts here saying I could use an airbrush with a specific paint, however I don't have an airbrush. What is a different way I could get a reflective 1-way finish on the visor?

    Pepakura Gloves That Don't Stick To Superglue

    I've been working on a suit of Reach armor, using the Pepakura method. As I'm sure any of you who have built this before are familiar with, some of the pieces you have to glue are very very small, So when you are super gluing the cardstock tabs together it is not uncommon for glue to get on your...
