Hello All,
My name is Nick and I've been bit by the proton pack bug! I got this pack on clearance from Spirit and have begun modding it. Here's what I've done so far. I took it apart, removed the electronics , masked it off and painted it flat black then added weathering with metallic silver paint. I purchased a sticker kit and a spongeface part kit from ebay and installed both of those. I also added a couple 3d printed parts from Thingiverse. I have a Frankengeek light kit in the mail (arriving tomorrow ), and will be adding a Spengler Neutrona Wand to replace the kit one. I also plan on making a larger motherboard from MDF and I really want an ALICE frame, but they are really expensive right now, so I may build one from PVC and add the ALICE straps.

I installed the light kit today, cut a motherboard from 1/2 inch mdf, painted it black, and 3D printed some more add-ons. I also ordered an ALICE pack from Amazon using reward points from my credit card, so it cost me nothing out of pocket. I ordered the Spengler wand from BestBuy last night and should have it by Friday. I can't wait!

Here are some pics of the hose connectors, 3d printed exterior parts, 3d printed motherboard mounts, and my alice pack mounts. Just waiting for the alice pack to arrive. I wanted the hose to pack connection to swivel so I found a hose repair connector that I painted black. The hose to wand connector is 3d printed and sanded down to fit the spirit loom. I'm sure most of the 3d printed parts came from forum members, so thank you all!

Made some more progress. Replaced the small, molded in resistors with 3d printed ones, and added the KLS Ghostbusters Spengler wand v-hook . Also cut the blue hose and inserted it into the brass fitting instead of sticking directly into the pack.. Still waiting for the Alice pack frame to be delivered, should be here Monday hopefully.

I used a dremel with a cut off wheel on low speed and then a sanding drum to remove the molded in resistors. My ALICE frame showed up unexpectedly this evening, so I was able to get it all mounted and buttoned up. I know the pack is mounted a little high on the frame, but I wanted it to stand up by itself:
