Suit Maintenance (Fixing Tears)

Recommended Posts

Don’t know if this has been posted before...anyway, I’m doing my pre-troop maintenance check (it’s a Navy 3M thing) and I discover these on my return edge of my chest plate!

Using my Leather hole punch I put a small hole at the end of the tear to keep it from spreading...

Then I sanded on the inside and cut an extra piece of ABS...

Cut and superglue in place...

Using the ABS Paste I made from my left over trimmings, I pack it around the reinforcement and fill the holes and tear seam on the visible part of the plate...

Once that dries I’ll hit the visible part with some fine grit sandpaper and call it a day!
