Modified Safariland 3A body armor carrier to accept plates

I decided to modify a very old Safariland 3A body armor carrier so that it would accept hard plates in conjunction with the soft armor inserts. It was a simple mod, to see how it all fits in preparation for the woodland camo prototype that will incorporate some ideas I have. I simply sewed up 3.5 inch webbing with velcro to the carrier; so that it will fit the hard plates. I may add side to side retention straps with elastic, or simple webbing to retain the plates from shifting side to side.
