1 inch crack down the bottom of the front face plate. the plastic was too thin in that area.

Ok bro. I think don't bondo that crack area yet. After you complete the helmet, the last part will be to cut the hole for yr head to fit through so you'll probably cut away most of that area where the crack is...the rest you can bondo and finally cover up with the rubber liner for the circumference.

You know, you can join in the armor party to assemble the TK armor. We usually throw parties and we should be able to get the suit up really quick.

I'll let you know bro. I'm moving house this coming weekend. In the meantime, you can start trimming out the parts first. I'll help you with the assembly of the armor and helmet. I'll sms you the date once I can confirm.

I had a great way to putty those cracks and holes, CA glue them, touch up with paint marker on the gap, sand with 2000 grit sandpaper then novus polish it. You wun be able to tell the difference. Keith can testify to some of the repair work i did on my helm. :wink:
