Hey guys, I've been off stilts for about 2 years now and I recently got back into it (yay). But I'm thinking I need new springs and all that and new hooves (allstars for hooves, who knew). And I'd like to give my pair a touch up.
Now, I'm around what, a good 6 foot now and I probably weigh more than I did the last time I did (2 years ago, yay!) I bought my brother's old bocks (may remember me or him some of you, i dunno. doubt it!) from him and touched them up a little at that time (I was what, 12 back then?) so now I've gotten back into it and my bocks look like this:
Foam guard has been removed since I took that picture and I could do with the knee bar replacing.
Now, since I'm stupid I'm not sure if taping the springs counts as modding and I'm considering taping it black and yellow - not sure what type of tape to use. I'd also like a colour to spraypaint the metal of the bocks with and I'm not sure if bronze of copper would go with it. The allstars make good hooves (yeeaaaah.) and I'm not entirely sure if I need to replace them but I'm thinking I'd need to take them off for the spraypainting and I'm worried about not being able to put them back on properly.
So, I need some suggestions - how do I improve this stuff? Should I get new hooves, how would I paint it, what are all of these mod suggestions like and I don't suppose some people could recommend me some improvements based on I usually run through Richmond or Kingston on them, occasionally through Richmond park, I get dehydrated easily and I need an easy supply of water, I have larger than average legs and I find that the straps holding my leg in don't fit around. I like making them stand out with a personalised colour scheme or original tweak to the bocks. (Showoff is me?) So I'm thinking what can I do to make them a little more fancy?
Thanks! Driniad/Ben (I think I might have posted this in the wrong place. Oops.)
