So, I picked up a spare Al Ross uniform with a pair of boots, and I get them on the figure, but, to get the boots on, I had to undo the top two grommets on the boots, and now I cant seem to get the laces back through the grommets, anyone know how to fix this??

The key is to keep the tip from fraying. When the ends fray, it's near impossible to get the laces back through the grommetts. Using a lighter on the tip can sometimes remove the fray. If that don't work, you don't have a lighter handy, fabritac works well to glue the fray back together and mold it into a point. It dries pretty quick too.

Had the same problem with my DiD jumpboots. Used a little super glue and the tip. When it dried I used and exacto to trim off the excess. Worked like a charm.

Good tips, both. I prefer the lighter method myself.

Ditto. Sometimes, I have a nice froo-froo candle lit. Serves a dual purpose, smells good and a ready source of flame for instances like this. :bag
