Recently my group and I met one of the newest members here, ovwthrillseeker. He had recently bought a pack from eBay from b*b's prop shop. It was one of the Matty wand versions and he was having propblems with it after only 3 months of ownership. The ion arm was falling off, one of the filler tubes was loose and about to fall off, and the Matty wand was malfunctioning as well. He bought a new wand from Matty Collector and replaced the one that came with the pack and after attaching it the same way BPS did the new one started acting up as well. That should be a lesson to anyone who wants to intergrate a Matty wand into their pack. Tampering with them causes them to malfunction. Anyway, ovwthrillseeker decided that he wanted to upgrade his pack and he commissioned me to do the pack body while he builds a Throwing Chicken thrower for it.
Here we go........
The pack as i received it:
Lets open it up, shall we?

The rechargable battery set up, aka rechargable Duracell batteries in a Radio Shack battery holder:
I can't be 100% certain, but this might be a TV speaker?
So with that I set off to fully dismantle the pack to begin the refurbishment.
