    Feb 5, 2011, 6:54 PM - Jango Hoses #1

    Hey Guys,

    Had a question about the hoses the connect the Gauntlets to Jango's shirt. I have a clear hose (with the white lining in it), that would be more suited for Boba. Do people buy a blue hose or do they paint the clear hose blue. If they buy them where can you find the Hose? I've looked around Home Depot, Lowes, and Ace Hardware. No such luck. If people are painting the hoses, How are they painting them? Thanks

    Izzy

    I used denim blue liquid RIT for mine. Yeah you are correct about the procedure. Get a bucket, fill it with hot water, add the dye, mix it up, and put in your hoses. Make sure you have some gloves because you want to pull the hoses out severaly times to check to see how they are taking the dye. You don't want them to stay in too long because they will just come out looking black.

    Don't mean to hijack but I have a question for some of our Jangos here about hoses: I was wondering what some of you do to prevent the hoses from popping out from under your sleeve when trooping? It looks like I may have to modify my jumpsuit for my right sleeve. I'm very animated when I troop.

    I have a parachute clip sewn under my second sleeve and the other end is attached (glued for mine, but somehow afixed) to the end of the hoses... you just run it up the sleeves and clip them together.

    I'll try and take pictures (if someone else has some, please post yours)

    Mine is like that too Tony but when I get active, it sometimes pops out of the sleeve while still attached to the parachute clip/buckle. I was considering moving the buckle up and using longer hoses but that risks pushing my shoulder armor up.

    If you have a jetpack, why not use a longer hose attached to the back (hidden) side of the jetpack, and run it under your overshirt through a buttonhole-type opening hidden by the jetpack? I would have to assume that the fuel for the flamethrower is shared with the jetpack, so it would be appropriate to attach the hose to the pack anyway, and running it over your shoulder and to the opposite side of the pack should keep it more or less in place when moving your arm.
