Armor Repair

Recommended Posts

I shattered my knee\shin guards on a trail and thought I would post my process for fixing armor that has cracked or broke.  Wear armor folks, this could have been my knee :wacko:

Broken armor pick



I then took a sharp knife and scored the plastic up on the top piece.  Mixed up some instaWeld epoxy and used some dry wall fiber cloth I had lying around.  Came up with this.



Finished up with another coat of epoxy, and a blast of black spray paint.  does not look HORRIBLE, will work as a backup as I already ordered new guards.  patch looks and feels strong!
