Gauntlet assembly and jetpack placement

Hi all

more noob questions

1. Gauntlets - is the flame thrower supposed to align with the front of the gauntlets or is there a gap ? Mine were painted by bm

I noticed there's a mix of different placements

issue is mine is pre painted - there's a damage in the middle if I match the damage then the flame thrower sits further down

if I line it up the damage is inconsistent - not an issue since there's damage all over the gauntlet

2. Jetpack I notice that depending on where you place the hooks it digs into the armour , armour is boba maker and the pack is dvh

What are people doing ?

High placement = hooks don't dig in but pack sits low you can see the groves or slots and the webbing
low placement = sits perfect but the hooks dig into the back armour

For the gauntlet, double check in the gallery, but I believe the forward placement of the flame thrower, with the edge flush with the gauntlet is correct.

I think that is correct also. You can touch up the damage where it lines up if you like.

For the jp, probably the higher placement is correct, but hard to tell from just a description. Mine hangs with almost exactly 2" of strap outside the back plate (not counting the rectangle "ring").

I notice you don't have the lower bracket on the pack -- does your harness have a cross bar? That would help support the pack at the right height. My straps mostly hold the pack steady and pulls it closer to the backplate, most of the weight is on the lower cross bar.
