Dude well done, now all i need is the time to do it...lol

Also the rough cost for Australians will be in the 600-700 range depending on where you buy some of the stuf. For example the bondo can be bought from any hardware store (Mitre 10, Bunnings you get it) some of the stuf is going to be harder to find, for example the fiberglass fabric. Is there anyone out there who can help me locate some of this?

Considering I don't own a gas mask, I think I'll go with AquaResin instead so I don't kill myself. Assuming of course that I can find that stuff.

Well, I'm on this thread, and I'm a noob as you would say. However, thanks for posting this up, because I did not realize all the tools/supplies that were involved in making a suit. Very helpful indeed. Thanks again!

Some people may cheat like me (explain later) or you may want to do everything from scratch. If you do here is complete list of what you will need by name and location. Ebay is a place where you can get ANYTHING. I am sure you can find better prices but this is based on needs and not cost effeciency. There are little odds and ends like tape, scissors, pens and knives that you will need but you may have that around the house already so I did not post items like that. Unless a direct link is given then it I searched for it on Ebay. I am posting the exact titles as they were found. Links are usless because auctions and sales end. Be advised you will need variations of some items such as resin and etc. When you look at the prices also look at the quantity of the item. Some things I went with the better deal, obviously you don't need 2 sets of eyeware and so on. If you need further guidance please veiw the well written tutorials on specific areas.
