Looking to Update TK Bucket

Post by TK Wolf » Sun May 27, 2012 10:52 am

I have an FX bucket with my original kit, any suggestions for type and/or maker of TK bucket I should consider?

Thanks for your help...

I hear ATA helmets are nice, and the price is right. :wink:

Definitely screws/bolts and nuts to make it servicable should you need to take it apart.
If you rivet it, this will be more dificult to take apart.
I'm glad I did this to mine, as a couple of times I've had to disassemble it to make modifications.

Screws and bolts are the best so you can take it apart if you need to. I have some riveted pieces that had to be adjusted and it was a pain. Removing rivets can be dangerous to you armor if you don't know how to do it.
