Looks good. You might want to think about adding a draw string to the neck. I found through time and experience, with the weight of the hair and bandolier it stretches the neck so it’s good to have something to hold it in place. I add it to all my new builds.

Been there but don’t worry it will all be worth it in the end. Just ask Dave how much he enjoyed himself at Lfcc this weekend.

Sorry . Just seen this
Ive got the high steppers and love them .
Had no problems atall .
As paul said i had a great time at lfcc spring as my fist big outing .
Check out my build thread on how i made the high steppers stable to prevent ankle rolling etc


For yours the high steppers may make u way too tall.

Cut them down and what you cut off slide back over and bolt / glue / adhesive .
That way you keep the integrity of the lower half
