I’ve riveted everything (again) and re-placed all the hardware, without deformations this time. I wish I could have the “triangular rivet pattern” more often but it if I do I’m going to cover this belt entirely with rivets.
I’ve also re worked the shape a little. I might tweak it more, but I believe it is now time to get it all unwrapped properly so that I can put in the grain, stitches and grommets.
I also need to add some bend/crease stuff in the back padding to make it match the cuffs.
