    update #3 on my jet pack project

    so i just got this jet pack i got it for $100 but it needs a lot of work it has holes in the top and bottom cuz of the old harness but i took it off and it needs to be sanded down and painted to but here it is what ya think


    those are the holes on the right and left side

    more holes on the bottom

    and thats the whole thing lol

    Where did you get it? $100 may not be that bad for what you have there. I just might suggest some silver weathering.

    Not bad for 100 beans....looks like an old vaccd' Golden Armor pack. Just some repairs and a repaint will have it looking fine

    You really turned that thing around!

    I made a very comfortable harness from the straps of an old backpack that I had last year. It took about 15 minutes and it was easy. Play around with things, and you won't have to pay a whole lot for one.

    You got a Camelback? So do I! It's a real lifesaver ... especially out here when it breaks 110F! I thought about rigging it to my jet pack, but 2 things:

    1) If you use the entire backpack as a harness, it will push out on the back armor, and make you look like a hunchback.
    2) Water weighs 1kg per Liter (which is 8.32 lbs per gallon.) Be advised of how much weight will be on your back when you fill up the water container.
