Introduction: Fake TNT Chest Rig for Halloween
FAKE TNT Chest Rig , OK FIRST OF ALL ! This is All in Good Fun , Not Trying to Offend or Disrespect Anyone I Needed to come up with something quick , since i couldnt find a fake AK 47 or find the necessary materials for a Rocket Launcher for My Costume which is a Taliban / Freedom Fighter whatever i dont think Being Politically Correct applies Here , so I scrounged through my stuff and got some Tubes from my sister and had all the wires and stuff switches , L.E.D.S. , paint , Glues ETC ... and went to work .......
depending on how Menacing to want to be , you can add the whole box , but i Opted for SIX , for ease and comfort , does that make sence ? :\ so first i cut the tubes in 7" lengths and one other tube from a roll of Suede , with my Trusty Band saw , makes life easy
Paint the Tubes a Bright Red ( APPLE RED from Michaels Crafts for $ 1.49 ) , on the Cardboard it looks just like the matte red from fireworks paper and on an explosive 3.3 sticker
glued all the tubes in place super glue , and then some RTV silicone for flexibility
added a strip of Trusty Duct Tape on the top and bottom of the tubes .
added a Piezo Beeper , What you dont know what it is ?? Remember those annoying alarms back in the 80's you hear a beeping coming from a BMW , a Mercedes , or Porsche , beep.........beep........beep.........beep ...... Yea Those ! you can still find them at electronic shops some are buzzers but still used in alarms but as the siren , they are 12 volts some are intermittent some are constant sound i used in conjunction with a tiny l.e.d wired from a switch and powered by a 12v remote battery whitch i had from a bunch of mood lights a customer bought i in the package was a battery , switch , and a battery holder this is to see the lights at the kiosk when you purchase at Kragens/ O'reilly or pep boys auto parts stores .
wired in the beeper and the switch and led w/ a 522k resistor
top covers i drilled 1/8 holes and added wire and a wire tie to secure them
some military colored 550 paracord
Finished in about two hours , No Sweat well yea lots of sweat was 90 in my Garage with a fan Blowing UGH !!!!!
