Well, I'll admit it. I'm overwhelemed with this stuff. I finally broke down and glued the 1st shin piece the other night. So far it looks like it worked. Yet, my calf is just big enough where it will not close in the back. Looks like I'm going to have some extra modifications to do on all pieces for it to fit me. I will post up pictures as I go so you guys can see what's going on. Talk to you soon.
