    I was wondering if the straps that attach thru the backplate are going to have these two rivots (not sure what to call them) on each side? Thanks http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/galle...g2_itemId=6919

    I think I can help with this. Quite a lot f research has gone in to ALL aspects of this rig, not just how the metal section looks, including fabrics, weaves, all the additional hardware that is required for the straps to get this as close as possible, including rivets through the "white" webbing where the final rings are located. In fact, I think the rivets are the only parts of hardware that have not been custom made to replicate this harness.

    I spoke with the awesome guy who makes up the replica stainless steel buckles and jetpack hooks, who is currently working on prototypes of the additional hardware for this project too, which includes all the webbing buckles etc and the lower jetpack hooks too. He tells me they will be with me within the next day or two. I can then produce the first finish rig

    More updates coming soon.

    Is there anyone who can make the bottom jetpack hooks that are screen accurate to go with this rig? The ones that DragonFett supplied with his rig work fine but are not screen accurate. I can't find anything in the hardware stores that come close. Has anyone found anything? Can these be made?

    As Gavs says, if I am correct the DF ones had a hole to acess a screw fixing the back of the clip to the pack. We did not want this, and the prototype bottom clip/hook will no have this hole and hence look like the screen used ones, I can not be sure of the fixing method for the ilm ones, but we have come up with a way to fix them and achieve the correct look. Again, this was not the easiest way to do things, but adds more accuracy to the finished piece. This was a detail I particularly wanted to get right.

    I hope to get a completed rig out very soon so you guys can see the work that has been going into getting this made.

    Hi dented ones, I got some hardware in the post today (totally awesome Geoff!) I now have every thing I need to get one of these finished.....so tomorrow morning around 11am GMT I should have photos ready

    Here are a few to keep you going. As you can see the bottom clips are solid fronts with fixings on the rear, again with a back plate as supplied with the hooks. They fit perfectly over the retaining bar too. As I am using an ordered pack to give an example I have not drilled the holes, but I think you get the idea.





    It is intended that a kit would include the back plate (metal 'U' frame) bottom hooks, soft parts, and harness hardware (fixing rings & adjusters). Top hooks and replica buckles may be optional as I know many of you have them,

    Now, to get sewing..........

    *Update*

    Well Rob has been a busy bunny and proved his sewing skills...

    This is the set up with the soft parts of the harness along with buckle and rings to ensure total comfort for the wearer. totally adjustable...
    We still need to add the white webbing to suspend the JP and the stitching will be black rather than the white shown.
