First enhancement, replace the solid resin detonator with an accurate, two piece 3D printed detonator.


The model came from here on the FISD forum.  It is sooo much lighter than the resin.






Painting the tube and the enclosure using the Behr satin black and gloss white:

Completed the new detonator:





Install on the spine plate just using a couple of wood screws:



Been working on some refinements to my suit-up process.

* Put spat on the shin before putting shin on.  This puts less stress on the spat than trying to spread it open and putting it on with shin already on leg.
* Attach leg gasket to thigh before putting thigh on.  This will be much easier than putting the gasket on first, then trying to get the thigh on properly without shifting the position of the gasket.


Here is my suit-up process.  All steps are done by myself unless otherwise is mentioned:

1. Put under-suit on.
2. Put on neck seal and balaclava.
3. Put shoulder/arm gasket on.  
4. Put thigh garter belt on.
5. Put lower torso on.
6. Attach gaskets to thighs, put on thighs, attaching thigh support straps to garter belt.
7. Put spats on shins, put shins on, tucking gaskets inside.
8. Slide up shins, put on boots, slide shin down over boot, position spat.
9. Attach cod piece to butt plate/spine plate.  Hang spine plate on back of lower torso.
10. Attach cod to front of torso.
11. Put fabric pouches on belt, put belt on.
12. Attach shoulder bells to upper torso, put on upper torso.
13. Put on biceps.  Have helper buckle bicep under shoulder bell.
14. Put on forearm.  Have helper attach gasket to inside of forearms.
15. Put on gloves.
16. Put on helmet.
