    Homemade leather ZULU (using existing hardware)

    Hey folks,
    Just wanted to share step-by-step pics of a leather ZULU that I made. I had hardware from an old nylon strap, wish I could buy hardware separately. I'd make more straps if I could, anyone know a source?

    @nokie, Thanks

    All,
    I've just been googling around and found a source for NATO and ZULU hardware: http://www.vintasso.com/vintasso/Home.html

    Thinking about making a few more 22mm ZULUs and maybe some 20mm NATOs now that I've done my first one
