its like $4-$5 a can its worth it if you dont want it to collapse
its not recomended that you use it on all the armor
the helmet is the best suited application
mabe the chest
keep in mind you dont want to pump it full
the stuff expands

i see, btw do u think the triple layed paper will keep from warping when i apply the resin to it, or should i spray it with primer first then resin or what?

id probably spray with clearcoat spraypaint ON THE INSIDE to stiffen it up
after applying hot glue to evry seam
id still go to lowes or try walmart they have it too

1. If using posterboard, print on the dull side

2. I double-layered my paper and cardboard reinforced and it still warped, that took many extra hours to fix. Use cardstock or something similar, it will save you a lot of headaches.

Oh and please use the edit button :lindsey:
