    Oct 6, 2015, 7:05 PM - My 98.6% Finished build #1

    So, after a good time of staying up until the wee hours of the morning sanding painting and gluing things together I am at the very end! I just put everything on together the other night, and I am going to have to adjust or tweak some things (I guess I never read on ANY post that it was going to be comfortable.) Anyways I thought I would share some photos. And use this post as a sort of online notes of the stuff I have remaining to do.

    The wooden stock for the EE3 is sitting in the garage to let the stain dry as I type this.

    I can't find the clear acrylic piece for the Range Finder or the circuit board for the back... Im sure its somewhere but I do have to glue those in

    The Metal Darts for my knee weren't threaded to fit, so I put some nylon bolts in there and the glue is drying to it now, then I just have to replace the resin ones as soon as that is done.

    My gauntlet came sans Darts of any kind, I am not entire too keen on waiting for another metal order at this time, so I found some 3d printed ones that should do the trick for the time being.

    I also have yet to attach the toggle switches to the side of the right gauntlet because I would just like to do that when I get the darts.

    QUESTION: the Boba Maker flak vest I got comes with a little compartment for the battery pack for the chest panel display... that pack is big and super uncomfortable as it also pushes the left panel forward.. Does anyone have any suggestions for where to wire it to or how to correct this to make it a little more low profile?


    Aside from that I am super happy with it all... Here are some pictures!
    I am always happy to hear suggestions or things you notice by looking at it!

    Are you using an accurate jet pack harness? If you are you should have enough room that you could place the battery pack between the two vertical poles and tape it to one of the side poles. I know mine would fit there if I didn't use the pouch on the front of my vest. The trick would be to make sure you have a long enough cord to your chest lights, but knowing how long mine is I know I could do that if I really wanted to in my outfit. Another option is to put the battery pack in your left pouch attached to your ammo belt. There are a few pictures where a cord could be seen dangling through the left side...I suspect that is what the cord was for in the movie.
