Both seals are 100% done one is wrapped in duct cloth and the other just has Plastidip on it. I like em both and will probably swap them from time to time. Now to finish the other to projects I'm working on

I' am now on the road to T3 with this suit. When I submitted it it came back to T2 which i was super excited to see and asked what I'd need to do to get it to the next level and now have things to do. I have made some edits and additions already to the chest already, I did end up taking clonely bear off for now but can and will go back on and I've added the flaming unicorn for being featured. But the main thing is making a full ab wrap instead of my partial one. I'm hoping in have it all finished for C2E2

WOOO lets go! Get that tier 3!

I made that mk7 ab wrap last year, lmk if you need any reference pics of what I did. Best of luck!
 
Ok so putting it on my mannequin kinda gives me a littler better visualization. I'm thinking on bringing the hip pods in a little bit and extending the top of the back upwards more.

Progress seems really slow in this due to fighting a cold, but work must continue for C2E2. I need to take off the front section on the chest and figure out secondary mounting points to make it more secure. Hip pods and the ab section need to be wrapped and it needs a zipper. I'll eventually make a v2 of this in due time

Well it's finally finished and it's been a learning experience for sure. My mk.1 ab wrap is done and will definitely make another one in the future. I do need to make the bottom straps on the chest a little bit longer to give it a little extra space for the ab wrap. Time for redeployment for this suit fingers crossed for T3

Well I was shooting for T3 but I put on hold for a hot second while I get an actual mk.7 helmet, we'll it's happened. I got it about a week ago and since it's been super slow at work I was about to knock it out rather quickly. Painting is just about wrapped up then the fun stuff like visor and padding. I do plan on adding electronics in the future, but for now I just cut slits in the cheek & chin vents. Going to add some wire mesh and intake and exhaust fan on either cheek but leave the chin with just mesh

With that being said I guess I've never posted a picture if the helmet mostly complete on my thread so here is it next to the mk.Vb, I also but some epoxy inside the helmet to strengthen it so it's not as fragile as it was. Still need to mount fans and battery pack and eventually I'll add the speaker and audio systems inside
