    Jan 15, 2012, 3:59 PM - Attaching a Jango classical jetpack help needed #1

    Okay, I'm going to start this project again.
    NOTE: I thought I had pics on my jetpack that I needed but I didn't. COMING SOON.
    I have a MOW classical Jango jetpack.
    I have SEEKER's jetpack harness.
    I have a new Jango backplate.
    How can I attach the jetpack harness to the jetpack? Thanks.

    you cut holes in your vest that match up with the slots on the backplate. run the black straps through the holes with the male side of the side release clip, i suggest using 1 inch webbing and clips. on the jetpack cut a slot and run some webbing through there and the female end of the clip, cut the slot up kind of high, around 3-4" above the hatch and out to the side of it a bit. attach the webbing inside your jetpack how you see fit. i personally used some 2-part epoxy to attach some cheap drawer handles in the bottom then ran the webbing around that and secured it with a 1 inch slide buckle.

    side release clip on the left, slide buckle on the right.

    Step 1: Get Rivet Gun (here is the one I have Amazon.com: Stanley MR100CG Contractor Grade Riveter: Home Improvement)

    Step 2: Get Rivets. I used Diam: 1/8" (3mm) - Grip: 1/2" (12mm) Amazon.com: Arrow Fastener RK6120 Rivet Assortment Kit, 120-Pack: Home Improvement

    Step 3: Cut straps to roughly where you want them and line them up on your jetpack. I used Seeker's photo for reference:

    leatherharness17 | Flickr - Photo Sharing!

    Step 4: Poke holes through your straps for your rivets.

    Step 5: Use a Dremel or other tool to drill into the spots on your jetpack for the rivet placement.

    Step 6: Set your rivets.

    Step 7: ???

    Step 8: Profit!!!

    I just did this to mine and it works great with Seeker's harness and feels very comfortable and secure. If you want step-by-step pics, lemme know and I can send them to you.

    Hope this helps!

    I got asked for some pics so I'll just post them here on this thread. Sorry for the blurry pics!

    All kudos go out to Seeker (because I copied him). But it works for me...Heh...
