Obviously, half of this armor is made from a football shoulder pad. The other half is tire tread, with
spikes attached and half a door hinge to hold the string. I also added some bits of chain mail to the tire tread side.
A wide belt completes the straps to hold it in place. Working with tire tread is very difficult. It is almost impossible
to cut, with the thick rubber and the numerous steel radials. Then once you do cut it, all those radials become sharp
needles; not a good thing to have on your skin. But, a sawz-all with the correct kind of blade will cut it, but you may
also need a large vice to hold it when you cut. I've shown the armor with a large, oversized belt for stomach protection.
