Jordan you just said the same thing in both posts.. :unsure:

Yes, return the stuff that you didn't mean to buy, and go buy the stuff that you were supposed to get. :oops:

Chitown doesn't have a Lowes, or a Home Depot, or a Pep Boys, or an AutoZone, or an Advance Auto Parts?

Good Jordan, thats the right stuff.

If I were you I wouldn't be so worried about paint right now... you're going to have to put in a lot of time sanding before you're ready to do any painting...
but when you do get to that point.... just regular spraypaints will do... with a coat of sandable primer first.

You know that you don't need to buy all the items before you start right? Buying it all at once adds up fast... it might be a little more affrodable to buy stuff as you need it... and that way you have more time to decide on color, and such...
 
ok so i was glassing yesterday and saw this crack on it, i think my brother did this any way on how to fix and is the glassing ok for a beginers and do i glass the inside??!!!!

Okay, well, at least you didnt make a new topic for something thats covered in almost every single sticky that lives at the top of the section of the boards. But, using someone elses topic to post questions reguarding your own armor building in is not nice either. This is considered off topic from the original thread. There is also a Search button. Just type in a few key words like, Material, Pepkura, Cardboard. Easy stuff I know.
 
ok so i got my tools ready and want to know is this alright
and one more qustions wat do i need to make detail on the armor ( i know dermel but wat little thing is it can i see a pic please)
and for the sander is 60 grid ok to use when i sand???
