well it's been a while since I've done anything to this pack, but I thought it was finally time to update this a little.
so the main detail I am focusing on with this update is the "towel rack" greeblie

I guesstimated the size of the bar and decided to use 1/2 inch schedule 40 PVC, it may be a little thick, but not at the level that it would bother me. I also decided to make the mounts out of sintra

the start

a dry fit to check size

mounting plate and filled in the gap between the two outer pieces with heated, bent, and trimmed sintra

and finally some bondo.
next step is sanding then paint. I still have to figure out how I want to mount it, I am thinking about using pop rivets and epoxy then covering the rivets with the fake bolt heads I am going to have to make, or just using epoxy

More progress!

sanded and primed

and main color. I went without the silver coat because last time I did the silver coat under this paint it had quite a bit of crinkle. so now I just have to wait for the paint to dry and then weather it

weathered, matte coated, and finished!

complete with fake bolts and everything. Now all I have left is the vents on the sides and this thing will be done, however that is a project for another time :laugh:
