Had me all excited when you showed pics of the car parts, would have been interesting to see the rest of it utilized  :P

Anyways, for the pack itself I would recommend adding some greeblies on the face and side.
You've got a good base, now you just need to add some more details to make it really stand out!

Some hoses, antennas, couple lights and some greeblies to add details.  ;)
Just grab a bunch and place them on it to test it visually, play around with it until you feel like it looks good.

Still looks a bit plain, granted after the paint job if there's some pattern of sorts that will make it less noticeable.
Some hoses and some greeblies on the raised sections (boxes) would add detailing.

Looks good as a base, but for a comm pack shouldn't it have some transmitters? Ie. antenna :P

Wow, looks pretty good. I agree with Thaxos, add a few grebs, tubes and some paint; it'll be ready to wear, ;)

You could use these for the tubes:

Cool! Looks similar to Sandtrooper backpacks. You should check out mepd.net (Sandtrooper detachment). Basically the same fundamentals, simple & effective. I like it!!
