Boots done.

Now all I have to do is click my heels together and say, "There's no place like home".

Nearly there . . . the result will be worth it, the suit looks amazing so far.

My mysterious engineer benefactor has brought the helmet mech back for another progressive assessment and function/fit consultation. Shave here, tweak there... Getting real close now.

I have to give my fingers a rest for a day or two. Sandpaper has rubbed all the tips of them off.

Spray putty after bogging and sanding.

A productive day of tweaking mechanical components today. Moved the front micro-switch closer to the rear pivot point of the hinge and made it adjustable as it was pressed up against the skin of my temple. Much better now.

The geared hinge needed a bit of a trim to allow further rotation on the down-stroke while keeping the worm gear in alignment with the motor.

I re-made the top hinge above the gear to pass over the gear instead of under. Now the faceplate is closing all the way down without the top hinge hitting the gear.

Unless I missed a larger purpose, this appears to be a "do it just for fun" project.

Which is pretty cool.

What does something like this cost?

I think the original kit cost $39.95. But the rest is labor, band-aids and paint.

It is for children's hospital visits. It's cost lots.

That's everything painted and clear-coated with the exception of re-doing the helmet and adding a couple of gold accents here and there once the clear coats have hardened.

Now into the nitty gritties of getting it all finished inside and the under-suit sorted out.

Also picked up 1x speedometer, (Bowden) cable to drive the helmet gear. Ten bucks at the wreckers.
