Pictures of a BIB starter with padding removed.
Several people over the years have asked if it’s possible to make xeno’s mods using a BIB starter by removing the padding, including myself. Well I had an old starter circa 2013 lying around unused, and the gel padding gets slimey as the years go by, so I cut it all out.
As shown, there are some structural cavities and weaknesses in the BIB starter’s “gel skeleton” whereas the BIB HC is more solid. A couple points on the fingers might need to be sanded down as well. Overall though, I think it could be modified successfully to xeno’s recommendations.
