ukswrath[Staff] Posted February 9, 2015 Report Share Posted February 9, 2015 (edited) This will be the final installment to the HWT back pack build. Part 3 Part 1 http://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/30034-hwt-backpack-build-part-1/ Part 2 http://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/30036-heavy-weapons-backpack-build-part-2/ 7) Backpack Base: Once I figured out the size I needed for a base, I found and purchased 12.5 quart drain bucket from Amazon. 7a) Remove the drain funnel, fill & pour caps and cut off the threaded spouts. 7b) Scuff up the plastic to take off some of the new plastic shine 7) Installed the rubber radio antenna in the top hole (pour spout) DO NOT install antenna. 7) I slid a flat washer down onto the antenna (seen above) 7d) Took a section of Velcro (hook and loop sides), cut out a antenna top and glued it to the antenna (seen above) 7e) Assemble and install upper and lower mounting straps using 1" nylon webbing and 1" buckles. 7f) After determining how all the pieces we going to paced I drilled holes from the front panel side. Using drywall screws and glue attached each piece until completed. Final pictures. I do apologies for this being in 3 parts.
