i was wondering what is the best way to pad your armor and keep it in place. I was thinking about cutting my pieces of armor in 2 after i fiberglass them and putting small hinges in them then have thick padding like blue camping pads cut up to fit in it tight and a latch on the opsite side . n e sugestions are aprecaited

ok well my plan was that i was gonna do pepakura models of the armor then fiberglass those 2 times to make them thick then paint, add my electronics and then pad them.
