Klwl's P2 V2.0

Firstly I want to thank the community for helping me with my dream of owning a real life movie style Pred suit. There are a few members who have gone above and beyond to help with donated parts (seahunterr graciously offered up some hands), an ear to bend  and advice given by A Hunter's Moon, Tuac, Brian, Lee, Rob and many others.  I won't go back in time to where my version 1.blah suit ended in ruin but will move forward to my new improved version 2.  I had to purchased new parts including torso, legs, feet and had to good fortune to hear from Colm (Tuath) and Chris (Neokazama) who both offered up to paint my suit for free!!! Yes you heard right free.... In the end I had gone with Neo (again sorry Colm I really did think you had other commissions in the works).  I will add more commentary as the thread progresses.  

This is where we were 8 months ago:

And this is where we are as of today:

Needless to say I am quite pleased how things are moving along and Chris is doing a beautiful job, I can't wait to get this home and go strutting down my street to get some milk at the local convenience store.

I shall add more updates as they become available.

cheers

This is GREAT to see Steve!  I would be $hittin' myself waiting to get a hold of this!  I'm glad things have worked out for you better than the first go, and that you found a reliable and honest member to get it done for you.  It's been one helluva ride, and I can't wait to see this it done!  Not sure exactly what the thanks is for, but don't mention it my friend!

I'm really glad to see this horror story finally turn around.  Chris has done an awesome job here.  Faaaaaaaar better than the look of the previous suit and less likely to fly apart at the seams as well.  Happy to have been there for moral support at least.  Look forward to seeing you strut your stuff at every con you can get your hands on.  Enjoy it man.
