For putting the armor together, both hot glue and super glue gel work great.

I like black silicone/gasket sealer for the visor because it sticks great, has a little give like caulk, and fills in any imperfections along your cutting surface.

If you're using hot glue and working with a plastic, like say for the visor's face shield, be careful and try to avoid melting the plastic with the heating element of the gun.

Has anyone tried slitting the tabs half-way in opposing directions, sliding the tabs together, and gluing them down that way for a little added strength?

I've never had two tabs that had to go together. You should have one tab and then a straight line with a corresponding number. Like this:

_____1______

/------1--------\

hmm when i tried super glue. it must have been industrial strength cause my paper started smoldering.
maybe it was so that the 2 pieces got like burned together?
or it was very acciditc cause it burned my finger.
