That's a pretty snazzy pack actually, and a great use for old spray cans. How does it mount?

Thanks for the comments, I use a back plate from strormtrooper armor,  this Jetpack simpli fits on it, only use 2  screws, but itīs unfinished, I will use other stuff to hang it.

looks real cool. I would still add to it as you can readily see 3 rattle cans, a rattle can cap and a plastic tool box. ;D

They're better when they have the hose mounted in, but yeah... spray cans.

Pretty much what has been stated, but off to a great start. Maybe some form of funnel to diguise the spay cans? Also where you are using three cans, I would loose the cap.

Thatīs the real problem, I cannot hide the central spray can because the boxx will not open well, iīm thinking to go forard and finished, (without the cap of the can on the top jaja)

Very cool Idea Vod , I like double duty gear ......  ;)

You could always just put a small cover (flat piece of plastic/sintra) over the top of the centre spray can. The funnel idea for the side cans is also a good idea.

I love that you have all that space. Very cool! How much does the whole pack weigh?

Great idea using the toolboxes and such, with a little bit more disguising on them this is going to be a superb pack.

scrounge for a couple of different color wire, the thicker kind from inside an old stereo or something.

make the wires connect the can and box , circle around the domey part, they will help break up the visual and draw the eye away from the can ;D
