ALTERNATIVE TORSO MODS


Hi gang, thought I would share my torso mods I did with you as it seems to be the thing a lot of us have to do if not lucky enough to get it on first time round..
The problem I had after buying the larger torso was that I struggled to get it to close near my armpit area. My profile (latts) stuck out pinching between the joints of the torso and was @#€$ing painful to say the least. After a lot of thought I decide to play around with the idea of of taping my latts together by wrapping tape around my chest under my arms this solved the problem of the pinching so my intention is to attach to straps to the under suit that I can pull around my chest and secure with Velcro on my back, thus giving me the T shape chest instead of a Y shape if you get my meaning lol.

The next problem was he torso was very tight and would not close together at the bottom and needed extending if it was ever to be wearable, I lost half a stone and now weight in around 11.5 stone and are aiming for 11 having said that the mods I have made I can fit into so any weight loss will be a blessing.. Ok pictures .. I can't find the first ones but basically I put torso on and measured the gap it was 45mm so I took it off fastened together at
Top (neck) then pulled torso apart to the 45mm and hot glued some wood in the centre to keep it at the distance.

Now the next thing to do is to apply some heat across the back of the shoulders straight across the torso to relieve the stress on the neck and whilst its hot dunk it in a cold bath this will set the fibreglass in place. then you need to make some cardboard templates to get the profile of the torso back looking something like it was before.

This bit I forgot to take pictures, but you need to make templates then get some wire matting and cut the shapes out, then you hot glue those in place, I then used p40 body filler (fibreglass) paste to the wire matting to form the body..

Image

Image

Once you have achieved the shape you need to fill with body filler and sand till you go crazy lol

Image

Image

You will need to sand back the torso profiles so you can bring them back into shape later, I did this with milliput..

Image

Image

You can see the shape taking place the profiles are the next ball ache but you can see it coming together with a lot of sanding trace coating and milliputing and more sanding lol..

Image

Image

Tried it on before I finished it off

And there you have it, iv still got to love it some more but its there..now YOU WILL NEED TO CHANGE YOUR RESIN RINGS AS YOUR OLD ONES WON'T FIT.. This is due to the hole size on the torso being that bit larger, if you look in the parts section there are some iv posted for a friend who made mine you will need to give him dimensions as you you may make your torso bigger/smaller than mine and that will effect the size of the rings. The outer dimension of the rings are the same as the old ones its the internal dim that change . I will post pictures of my torso with new rings on soon as they arrive... Hope this helps guys it did for me emoticon

Re: ALTERNATIVE TORSO MODS


That's some great work this is what I thought of doing,I have the larger chest size as well,still a bit tight even though Ive lost weight.the last time I tried it on.I could move around and it didn't hurt having it on,until I tried putting the rubber matting on underneath it would fit.so I went into a charity shope found a mini skirt size 12 it is ribbed.and it fits under the torso.but I might try yours method if I find it too tight again.

Yes well that's the other thing the rubber mat iv bought the stuff but iv seen girls dresses ribbed that they can also use as boob tubes that work really well and may go down that route. Never thought I would ever say that lol not to mention iv bought girls gold and silver bloody leggings, my wife thinks I'm on the turn lol..
