1. Benches cleaned off and shed reconfigured for some serious bog work.

2. I'm making a heap of knives this weekend, but now I need a specific tool to continue with them so I have to pause. The Iron Man electronics are still on hold, so now to spend some time with prep for finishing. Very thin applications of bog, sanding off all but the low points. A little bit of build shaping in the cracks, welds and hard-to-reach places, trying not to add too much weight.

3. Trial paint. First a coat of gold, then an anodised red to go over the top. Shoulder bell is probably the easiest to fix if I stuff it.

I've decided to paint it myself purely because of cost. To get it done professionally it will cost me around $2K and if I fall over and damage it, that's an expensive hit. If I paint it myself I can certainly fix it in the event I have an accident.

Finish colour.

What to do with leftover bog when working on a piece and it rapidly starts to harden? Jamb it in the cracks of the next piece.

I've had more than a few people suggest that I appeal to the charitable types out there in the name of a good cause and intent.

While I have had a number of amazing people step forward and give, we must realise that there are limits to what we can reasonably ask for and realistically accept.

There are endless worthy causes out there that many give to and mine is just one more. Making sick kids happy for a couple of hours is nice, but perhaps not as important as giving for children with no clean water. So, I must mush on and give from my own pocket to see it through and that's absolutely fine, just a bit slower is all.

I visited a pro shop to get a price on painting the whole suit. Around $1500 to $2000 AUD. I then asked around for LOCAL painters as I want to have hands on the process and am not willing to let the suit out of my sight. No one stepped up. I got an interview on local Canberra radio asking for a painting sponsor with no response.

I can guess that businesses get people at their door all the time with their hat in their hand, begging for something for nothing. As a pro-photographer, I used to get people all the time asking for free photography with the carrot being, "lots of great exposure for free." I tired of it quickly, realising that exposure doesn't pay bills.

So, I can hardly expect it from the majority of businesses as I know EXACTLY how they feel.

With a cost like that I thought if I fall over or get caught in an elevator door or something stupid, that's an expensive little accident. If I paint it myself, I can also fix it myself.

That all sounds reasonable to me. You seem to be doing a fantastic job of it too! :D

I think the best part of this build is how much of this whole process is done by just you. Very inspiring!

Thanks very much gang. :D

Work continues late in the night.

You have an way of making ugly mechanical stuff look beautiful. I'm really anticipating how the kids will react to your finished art. Please have someone go along to take pics.

Now we just need somebody else to design a nemesis character/suit, should make the hospital visits even more interesting. :D

Also, I wonder how long before the flight pack is designed and working, that would be phenomenal!
