    I'm thinking of starting a full iron man foam build. I found some great foam, which I already used to make an IM helmet, I think it was Sharkbeetle's pep file which I found last year on this site.
    My question some in two parts:
    First, how do you put all the separate parts of the armor build together? Do you use straps, elastic? This is one of the those questions that simply stop me from getting started.
    Second, and just as perplexing (to me) as the first, how do you wear the armor? Dis the guys who made them put them on one part at a time and if so, how do the parts stay in place?
    Thanks for the help in advance.

    Hi mate not sure about the others but this is how Ive done mine, OK forearms and biceps are connected together at the joint with Chicago screws so the hinge also the same with the thighs and shins, The abs and cod are glued in one piece and cut down the side a foam flap added and then Velcro used, The chest and back are glued at the top of the shoulders and flaps added at the sides and more Velcro used, and the shoulder bells Velcro to more flaps at the top , And the neck seal is cut down the front flap added and Velcro used.

    hope this helps good look :)
