Hi guys !


Today I worked a bit on the vest. I need this base ready to continue in the arm.



support a balance of suspension of any car





Soldered a piece of 15x15mm metalon each side to have the support area which will make the holes for screwing in the center of the vest








Marked and made holes for screwing this piece of a plate that will cover the chest





The parts that form the front plate


One covers the gearbox of a VW Fox (I think)





A protective cap from the oil pan of a volvo





Screwing everything together we have it.





Then add a piece of a ratchet to lift car (the one that comes in the vehicle manufactures)








Added a fuel filter








Closing with a metal hose clamp





Continue ...

By this time the set that way














Continue to vest until closing the basics with straps and support to be able to continue in the arm. Finishing the arm, back and finish the vest and hoses that connect the masks and tanks breathing. Then after that I'll focus more on the robes to get away from this mechanical part and give more time to mature ideas together.

Thanks for see my post :)

Hi guys !

Advancing the project ...


Could manufacture and fix the straps on the vest sustaining the basic set, and put what would be the "cardio-mechanical valve" in the vest.





To make the "cardio-mechanical valve" used an automotive oil filter.








Cutting the threaded end of the filter I can remove excess material inside and reduce part weight.





This is what comes out of the filter (reducing the weight to less than 30% of initial)





The lysate is then filter this way.





And with the screw that secures the motor





And one other filter cap (with some reduction to fit the breast plate)





I ele set himself instead.

















Now, making the straps

Leather straps finish without healed (usually used to make belts or harnesses)





A bit of bitumen and the look is appropriate

Some pieces of an old bicycle handlebar








Flattened and placed at the ends of the leather straps

















Holes were made to fix the metal strip on the handle, and pass the pin that pinned the strap on the vest





With that kind of caught the rivet metal handle











And with that attach the strap to the vest













Continue ...

So the result so far this this way.











Next step, buckles for closing vest, close the connection between the exo-arm and vest and then I will focus on the hand that composes the whole exo-arm.

Thank you for viewing my post :)

totally agree 120%! that like something you would build in fallout!
Fallout is my first motivation in this project :D

I have taken this project as a hobby. I like manual labor and tools as a woman likes chocolate. The opinions and comments in the post is an extra motivation. Thank you for the compliments :)

Looks great. Have fun wearing that. My fiberglass and foam armor is tough to wear all day at a con. I can't imagine wearing that for very long.

Sorry, this is the cover of the clutch, not the flywheel hehehe. And asbestos is banned in Brazil :)
just saying sometimes with clutch covers they tend to hold onto the clutch dust, I'd recommend you check it out in case, becasue I know some clutches and brake pads may contain asbestos

Try EPI specific. Long gloves, facial shield, and has a lot of acetone to clean the resin fouling everything. :)

All parts of the piece were washed with solvent to remove grease. Here in Brazil, asbestos was abolished automotive products and construction is about 8 years old. It is possible that some parts still have asbestos, but the bath of caustic soda that apply on the parts, I believe, eliminates these dangerous products. But after the warning I will start checking the origin of the parts prior to handling them. Grateful for the warning :)

LordTosco, Your work is outstanding and I love your ideas!! I have one small question though, As you keep building this suit how heavy is it and how heavy do you think it'll be when your done? I just replaced my clutch in my Toyota pickup last week and even the clutch plate cover was fairly heavy and I wouldn't want to strap that to my back. I can't wait to see this build finished, it has such a "real world" look to it:)

This question really can become a problem when everything is ready. But when I disassemble the parts and I separate them to use, I usually photograph them to see what appears and what does not appear to aesthetic effect. After that I eliminate everything that can be visually useless until plumb small pins are removed. That part you quoted for example, weighs heavily due to hard iron that gets stuck on the inside cover. I pulled out this disk decreasing the weight of the piece to less than 1/4 of the original. I do the maximum to reduce weight but do not do it at the expense of aesthetics desired. I believe that the full set had weighed around 25 pounds with clothes and other items.


The nice thing about this forum is that the questions and opinions keeps me aware of many important details. Out that what I see in other posts helps me understand situations that have no solutions.


Grateful for the comments :)
