again, not much progress but i attached a another piece of leather to the arm brace. then i realized i attached them with the buckles on the wrong side lol.
i'm using some chicago screws at the connection point on the arm brace. it looks very clean and it's removable but i think they might loosen as it's worn. so i don't know if that's going to be final.
tomorrow i'm going to attach the rest of the leather on the lower belts and adjust a few things here and there.
