Re: RUBIES BEGINS BELT MOD....


[sign in to see URL]'s the tutorial with pix...
1. First off, of course you need the Rubies belt and the Kids DresS Up belt that you can find at Target or TRU
Rubies belt
--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--

Target / TRU Dress up belt
--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--

2. As you can see on the Kids Dress up belt, the "metal" pouches are detachable. There are a total of 2 pouches on the Kids [sign in to see URL], they made one slightly smaller than the other for some weird [sign in to see URL] no [sign in to see URL] ahead a leave off the pouches and the GPS/phone device so that you can see all the pegs on the belt with the screws.

--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--


3. Go ahead an unsrew all 3 pegs from the belt. You'll end up with the peg with the screw in it and the backing that holds the screw in place (the backing isn't really necessary, just for reinforcement).
--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--

4. Go ahead and take 3 links from the Rubies belt (i'm sure all of us have extra links from the extra belts we ordered). For each one, you will make a small hole big enough for the screw. I used the point of an exacto knife and just twisted until the hole was big enough and then attached the pegs with the screws to the holes you just [sign in to see URL], you dont have to use the [sign in to see URL] up to you

5. Now go ahead and reattach the link back to the Rubies belt any place that you like and clip on the pouches / GPS device
--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--

6. Paint it with the Krylon Gilded Brass Spray paint like everyone is suggesting in other threads...(i still have to do this step too)

7. Presto chango, you know have a Begins Belt with two functional pouches

"CoverTec" Clips on the BatBelt?? Great Tutorial! I wouldn't have looked into the kids belt otherwise. Is that tracker based on any known PDA?

Would it not make more sense to use the adult sized belt?

It would, but is it out yet? Weren't people who all done this used child size because it is more readily available?

You could use the adult belt also since from what i heard the only differece is that it's just longer but it's slightly more expensive and i believe it only comes with one pouch and one pod like the kids [sign in to see URL] in order to get the a closer resemblence of the actual belt, a bunch of peeps like myself, bought few kids belts to get the extra pods and pouches. The mod would aslo be the same.

Ok, so the adult one is just longer? I was gonna order some online, I guess I'll do the kids if it is pretty much the same thing.

Let us know how it turns out when you paint it. Do you need to use a primer? Will the different colors affect the color after painting? Stuff like that.

Thanks again. I would have never thought about this. I’m thinking about buying two and having 4 usable pouches. They don't fit ID or ATM cards though but they're perfect for car keys, mini lights, lock picks and other little things.

Excellent tutorial.

I think the kids belt and the adult belt are the same except for the size. So since you are going to need to kit-bash two belts, may as well be the cheaper kid's belts.

That looks like it might be made out of the same kind of waxy looking plastic that the soapdish was that I used for my belt buckle. I had trouble getting the paint to stay on until I used a primer. You might want to do the same, or you might find that you can strip the paint off with just masking tape.

Ok, Im going to get the Krylon gilded brass today. I also read that Mr. Bats suggested "you prime it with fusion". I'll try to find that at homedepot. My question is will the differnce in color of the belts make a difference or is the Krylon Brass thick enough not to show? Should I spray the belt white first then brass or just brass it first.

Sorry for all the questions... I don't want to screw this up.

Thanks guys,

Pretty cool tutorial man! I might just do the same with my belt (just detach the pouches from the kid's belt, paint 'em, and attach to my belt). That would be EXCELLENT to use at the Halloween parties on Halloween (money keepers, a lot easier than digging through the costume for you wallet :guitar ).
