  1. After taking everything apart, deep cleaning the pads, replacing every rivet with 3/16" or 3/8" Chicago screws (can explain which ones where if needed), removing the awful chin/neck billow and adding my new Umplife Rayflex harness I'm very happy with the process overall. However I am having a hard time finding a paint that I'm happy with. I first used plasti-dip and wasn't happy with the "rough" finish and with the "sticky" finish it seemed to scuff and scar. I then tried a Rustoleum Universal Advanced Formula spray paint and its seems that it will also chip very easily. Does anyone have any other ideas?
  2. I am considering doing some modifications to my West Vest Platinum as well as a good cleaning and possibly paint job. What is the best product to use to deep clean the pads for both the CP and the shins? Too many seasons of dirt and sweat. My my first mod will be to cut the oversized chest/throat pad off. Any particular reason I shouldn’t? Second mod would be possibly repainting the plates grey or black. Any advice on this? Also with color in mind, anyway to revamp the color of the padding since it has faded over time. Lastly before anyone suggest it, I have just ordered a new UmpLife harness and it is awesome!
  3. Silver FM4000 with tan TW pads, black LUC pads, and navy LUC pads (with navy harness, of course). Black +POS ZRO-G with black stock pads and tan TW pads. First real upgrade since the good ole Wilson Hubcap.
  4. I have found a pretty good deal on an All-Star mask on baseballplusstore.com. Has anyone used this site before? Is it legit? Does ordering from them affect any warranty issues?
