A couple of more detailed shots of my jetpack in progress. All the aluminum components ( vent on the bottom, stabilizer, jet thruster round parts, and the to be acquired beacon) are from Quest Designs of Canada on etsy.
I also was able to fit the Canon itt plug port on the bottom back recessed area, it took a little creative dremeling but it fits. I just made the quick release port too, found an air tool hookup that looked appropriate, colored it with Tamiya clear red to give the anodized look then screwed on a double threaded nut from some extra rotj gauntlet hose hookups. I then drilled a hole and super glued that bad boy in. Worked pretty well.
I will most likely replace it with the appropriate Kuhnke part but this works for now. I have my Big Dane harness rigged up with real US divers belt ( what a pain to rig, omg). I ended up using rivets and e6000 adhesive as sewing is not my strong suit. The rivets will hold plenty well. I was able to cut and sew the cutouts in my vest though, before my cheap sewing machine bit the dust.
Pro tip, invest in a quality sewing machine, stay away from the hobby lobby or Walmart brands as they have very poor instructions and threading them is a nightmare. I wish inbound have dropped 150 bucks on a quality singer machine and that would have been it.
