    Aug 16, 2004, 2:52 PM - Anyone have photos of the Jetpack interior mounting system ? #1

    I am building my new GA jet pack and need some info on how to build out or attach the straps inside the jet pack. I would like to get them done so I can cut the backplate out and get it attached. I searched though the posts and could not find 1 single photo of anyone posting a picutre of their mounting system. Can anyone help me? This is the back of mine:

    That's the inside. Unfortunately, it's rough and needs a lot of trimming but it's not noticeable when you cover it with a plastic plate.

    Could you screw in hooks of some sort into it and then run the straps through? Maybe secure a bolt that holds a piece of metal that lets your run a strap through it? Maybe 4 of them, two on each side and attach plastic clips at the ends and attach them to the vest through the back armor? Just a suggestion. I have no pics of what I'm talking about.

    On my jet pack I connected a piece of wood to my rocket. Then I connected that piece of wood to my wooden dowl that went through the entire jet pack. Then I attacked two other pieces of wood. One where each of the tanks are. I attached them with screws. The I screwed my straps down and I screwed my back plate on and glued it. That worked for me, I will try to post pictures tonight. I could not post them yesturday because I had to do my Calculas.

    I bought metal hooks and I fastened them in the jet pack with several layers of fiberglass and resin. There’s no way that they accidently come off.
