As long as the duct tape mannequin is a good representation of your shape it should be fine.
Looking at the belt your options are few as far as I can see. If the buckles weren't there would the belt just meet or would it overlap?

To be honest it is safer that way :up

Don't forget to put saranwrap/Clingfilm around your body before you glue.

That is looking great so far, good job.

On the problem of the belt? First, I must say I didn't have to do this, nor have I ever did this. But here is a suggestion.....

This depends on how much you have to cut out. Why not cut it down to size where the straps are and glue new straps across the belt, to close up the the gap? It should be ok, cause it's at the back where no-one would see. The other advantage might be a better looking join across the belt, depending on how much you have to cut. If ya want to go all the way, you could even cut a groove out, so the strap sits flush.

I repeat, I have never tried gluing urethane to other material (assuming that's what the belt is), but there should be plenty products in the UK for that job.

Hope it helps :toocool

Hey bro thanks ands the belt is fixed already.I cut the 2 tabs along with the straps that were molded into it off ands glued on my own black straps from a north face book bag along with its buckles and looks great. When glueing urethane definitely use gorilla super glue gel or loctite super glue gel.stuff bonds instantly.

Thanks for the tip. I do have a small tear in a urethane cowl that I have been meaning to fix - just never got round to it yet.

I teared the bicep behind a tad and the glue bonded it right up. Just make sure you do our best and let it set. I realized the less glue the better and shake the gel out of the bottle.

Re: My 89' suit progress (nothing you haven't seen)


Ok well I'm officially done mounting the suit ands it came out perfect except for one little miss happen which I'll show beetle that's getting me so angry.

And then one taking out of of the stupid duct tape dummy I see this. Probably from stress/weight or actually now to think of it, pulling it off of the plastic wrap while on my body to hard to start a little something. Is there anything I can do?I tried to add a very small admit I'd glue but I don't know ,I just don't want it to get huge and
 have to remount. So questions...

1.) What should I do about the minor tip on the waist line of the leg armor on the spandex man undersuit?

2.) How do you store/fold the suit?

3.)
What is a good mannequin (affordable)
You display the suit on?

4.)-I have the dark wear 89 gloves in medium , and they are a very high grade of leather if any one wasn't aware.my question is...Is there a way to attach them a tad to be able to slip over my fore arm armour that's already mounted to my suit? Their a but snug ands was wondering if you could well I could do that?
Thanks again guys
