I thought it was about time I posted up about my wonderful pack building journey. I've spent the last few months researching the build, and buying the uniform. I decided to take the plunge on a DL4567 shell and mobo and received them last friday Along with my nick-a-tron pack and gun kit, I also scored a MMM Ion Arm, mounting kit and some other bits from him.
I started marking out the drill holes tonight, but ran out of time to take photos. I did have some questions when marking it out though, how many of the mounting bolts should go at the top of the pack, on the Gun Mount and the EDA? I've been following Steffan's plans, but he calls for two bolts in these places I think, most other builds I"ve only seen one bolt in this place. Not too sure if I'm interpreting the plans correctly. Also, where the smaller loom connects to the gearbox, should I drill a hole for this or mount a piece of pipe for the loom to fit over? I think that question is a bit of a noob one, but it's something I haven't been able to decide on. And one more question, the mobo I have sticks out from the shell just a little. I was going to leave it, but then I saw on some other builds that pack was sitting flush with the mobo. What is the general consensus on this? The sticky-outy bit isn't alot, so I'm not sure if a jigsaw will be too much to use, but it's too big to sit there with a file. I'll get a pic up tomorrow to show what I mean.
Hopefully I'll get some pics up tomorrow. Any feedback so far though would be awesome.
