Well, I got it installed and everything... This took me maybe 30 minuits to do... It's just a rough sketch. I used wood as the materials so that people would be able to determine the difference between the cover and the base.

When I finish the new one, I'll be sure to post it up here.
PS: Its a 3-D modeling program... I could make guns.. but probably not armor, due to the curve in it.

And here we go! Here is the one that I've spent my almost entire saturday working on!

Notice the three Tier drill holes. There'll be a mechanism that'll allow me to lock and I can just twist it. Also notice the glass with holes drilled into it. This'll allow the items on the bottom shelf (see below) to stay airated, while the top will be "vacuum" sealed.

Ok, So you've got the tank down at the bottom holding the oxygen or whatever, And then you've got the Top "thing" That will have tubing running from the oxygen pack, into there, and into my helmet
Also, The almost triangular thing at the bottom is to support the pack, keeping it more sturdy then just a plain square.

Ok, in this notice how well they fit together? The whole point of the shield is to cover all of the internal contents.

Hope this'll give you an idea as to how make it hold items! And if you can, lemme know what you think.

I bought my house around 8 years ago.  I bought it "as is".  In doing so, A LOT of junk was left on the property.  Its a nice piece of property and I am very happy in our nearly 100 year old farm house.  Well, as I was walking around looking for scrap metal, I came across this old Craftsman lawnmower.  And when I mean old, I mean....

OLD


Needless to say, I finally found my base for my back pack.  Tell me I'm wrong... YOU CAN'T!  It is exactly what I need.  Just some TLC, sanding, bondo, epoxy and voila my back pack!  Yes, it is still in the beginning, but my plans are finally coming to fruition! 

Here's some points of view for reference.










Whatcha think?!

Phase I has begun.  Sorry no pictures of this phase.  It's merely sanding down to make it smooth.  This is going to be a long process.  Using 60 grit to really knock it down.  Will be gradually working up to 250 and then priming.  Will take pictures prior to priming.
