    How can I successfully strap on my ABS shin guards and mount a cap on my vader costume? Shoulders are fiber glass.

    Hey Clay,

    I know one of our Vaders is having computer troubles so he wont be online for a bit. I will let him know that you are having some issues.

    Do you have any pictures of your Suit yet? Even if you aren't wearing it. I'd like to see what you got.

    Talk to you later,
    TX-338 Out!

    Hi Clay

    As far as your shing guards go I have 1" elastic straps that has velcro onthe ends that attach to your shin guards there are there is a total of 4 for each shin they clip together with quick release snaps. As far as a cap Im not sure what you mean there????

    I understan that I need clips, but the straps are attached with velco? Maybe 4 would do it, the 2 don't do it for me, constantly thinking they are going to fall off when walking.

    Clay, you have a good start on your vader from whjat I saw at the game. Still needs some work to get it up to 501st spec's but you've got most of the important stuff. If youd like some help with it Id be willing to give you a hand finding the proper parts. Vader is ALWAYS a work in progress...It's never done..lol..always something to improve. Your first attempt puts my first one to shame. Pic attached. Took me three years to get mine to where it is now and i still have room to improve it. Let me know if your interested.

    Lee
