Thanks, although I didn't do this one with the foam mats lots of people have been doing lately (although I've seen some pretty impressive results thus far). From what I hear, the mats aren't that expensive. I think a few guys have made the majority of their Reach suits with ~$40 worth of those foam rubber mats?
Duh, I get it now. mats = materials You can start saving now and buy a little as you go. A pack of card stock at Wal Mart cost me ~$5-6 bucks. Cheapest but good method I know of is the hot glue method. Go to 405th.com and look up a guy named Pooper. His latest suit is fiberglass, but his first one was hot glue. Looked pretty kick ass after paint was done.
