The Product

My sample arrived in Eduard’s trademark clear poly envelope enclosing a piece of card stock, Eduard’s Knight standing at parade rest at the top right-hand corner. Inside I found one small photo-etch fret, one small textile fret and the instructions.

The Build

First, the instructions are very clear and easy to understand. However this is where I ran into a bit of trouble. Following the instructions without consulting the internet proved to be my Achilles heel and I totally screwed up the review sample. I would like to apologize to Eduard and IPMS for my lack of foresight. It’s the result of living under a rock according to one online reviewer. If you’ve never used this type of product and are not familiar with it do not rely solely on the instructions. You will also need a online course in fabric seat belts textile. I’m sure this is a great product when properly done. The problem I had was not being able to discern if or how to remove the layered backing. I found it difficult and confusing. In the end I followed the provided instructions as directed and still managed to screw it up. I wish I had more to offer because I feel this product is owed proper merits.

According to Dave Morrisette

The Bottom Line

I would like to thank Eduard and IPMS.
