I have an opportunity to get a complete TK. The guy who is selling it says it does have some yellow on it. Here is the latest pic.
I am 5'7"..and the guy is 5'9". The armor is 5'10". The guy said it should fit someone who is 150 lbs or more. It is AP ESB armor. The guy has trooped in it a year ago. Is the armor too yellow...in which I would need to paint it.....and I have no painting skills (other than model car building for 20 years). And no one to contact to paint it.
Thanks for any help.

Too hard to tell in the pic. I'd imagine someone would have to see it in person...

Doesn't look to bad. You could definitely take it back to white, but your going to have to disassemble the armor. Like take off the straps and belt and ab buttons. Or you could just dirty it even more and do a TD. That's what I would do. ;)

I passed on it. The armor has significant yellowing due to trooping in the sun. It is also for someone who is a 5'9".

Thanks for the comments!

Well that's a bummer. With alittle work you could have made that a nice set of armor again. :)
