    Finished the inside of the bucket. Added some fans, installed the visor, and added padding. It took quite a few iterations of pad placement to get it to sit so I could see well out of the visor and still be comfortable. I know most people don't put fans in but I love them in my TK bucket so thought I'd give them a try here as well. They are a bit loud where they are placed. I'll remove them if they bother me with the noise due to placement, or if I simply stay cool enough without fogging due to the entirely open bottom of this bucket. Will post finished bucket pictures later.

    I ran them on a test for ten hours. They were still going strong at that point. Can't imagine I'll ever be suited up that long. ;)

    Excellent SS !! That's great for them to last that long. What are the lipo batteries, and where did you get them? I like the compact size of them !!

    Got them from Amazon. they are meant for charging cell phones hence the 3000maH rating . These were about as cheap as I could find for quality ones.

    Final bucket pictures below. It will be a while before my next post as I currently don't have any of the other parts to start working on. I need to figure out which parts I want to go after next. Will probably go for the gauntlets and body armor pieces. Any recommendations on the best vendors to check out would be very much appreciated.

    Did your kit arrive? It looks like your rangefinder LEDs are on with the stalk in the up position, it shouldn't be like that.

    Kit arrived and works great. I temporarily bypassed the switch so it is on all the time. Thanks again for the quick turnaround time.
