Excellent! The mods on the vest are easily doable. Thanks for the link!

Alright! Got the stuff from costumebase today. The jumpsuit is a little tight, but fits well enough once on. I see how cheap the zipper is, but I think it'll work ok as long as I'm careful (at least for now).

The vest looks pretty good, although the velcro fasteners came off the very first time I tried to pull the attachment apart. That was expected, so no biggie. I picked up the wire and tubing from Lowe's today and will at least get that in there soon. Then start working on some of the other mods to make it better.

The chest box looked "ok", but I also got the kit from TK560 (thanks for the link, Wolfie) and saw how small the costumebase one was compared to it. So, I'll have that to work on while I wait for the helmet kit to arrive.

Working on the leg flares now (using a dowel rod), but got the mini flares, arm tools and a piece for the chest box from elvistrooper. As soon as the harness, belt and leg flare holder get here, I should be ready to start flying!

Guess I never did post the finished picture... Embarassed



Still waiting to hear back from the powers that be on whether it's approved or not. The way it's all set up, you don't really know if the application got through or not. I wish there was an automated e-mail or something saying if it went through. Oh well, it's only been a few days. The first thing I'll be wearing it to is ConNooga.
