Step 1: Remove Labels & Glue From Bottles

1. Take three empty plastic soda bottles and pill off the labels.

I used one clear 3 liter Coca-Cola bottle and, two clear 2 liter sprite zero bottles. 

Remove the two green cap rings.

Spray on some Goof Off to remove the label glue and lightly scrap off the gunk. Rinse the bottles inside and out, then let dry.

you say to spray BOTH bottles gold, but you show 3 bottles. It looks like you mean spray both Sprite bottles gold and the other bottle bronze. Am I right?
kangel11 year ago
Thanks, these look really cool. BTW, it can be regular Sprite bottles as they still have the cool dimples. And you should double check your grammar. Makes following you easier.


NOTES:
you useD a lighted TO bevel the ends

your is possessive, you're = you are; if YOU'RE good at cutting, etc.

Where does the fog machine go when you wear the jet pack?

I'd love to see photo or videos of it in action!

This has defintiely inspired me to add special effects to my rocket pack.

Well, for now I have to hold the fog machine but, there is a cool fog machine that can be placed in the backpack. The tiny F07 is battery powered and cost about $1,825.99!!!

I will get one . . . . one day . . . .cry . . . ='(

Further to my previous comment, found these things which should be pretty easy to hack for a cheap, portable smoke unit. http://tealco.net/zero_blaster_fog_gun.html
How about this one?

Hey!!!! thats way too cool! thank you and stuff!
xenor aeshem3 years ago
No idea if they still make them, but I do recall seeing some type of fog wand that was quite cheap. Basically a miniature fog machine powered by batteries.

A quick google search found a now discontinued item called "The Wizard Stick", but you may be able to track down something similar.
Yes, I'd like to see a video too - not forgetting the sounds effects...
aeshem (author)  Cabbages and Kings3 years ago
I was tying to find rocket sound FX online and it was junnky. so, for now I just added cool songs that like . . . . . . "ROCKET-MAN"

I will try really hard to have the vid up soon. =D
I was sort of thinking of the actual noise the fog machine makes (but I didn't realise it doesn't fit inside at the time).

Nice work. Voted for you
aeshem (author)  ZoDo3 years ago
Aww thank you :)
Nice work, but If I could make a suggestion, covering the cap of the soda bottle would go a long way, it still comes off as a soda bottle. Maybe put something dome shaped over it like a decorative bell, the scoop cut off a ladle from a thrift store, the cup from a broken metal flashlight. That part just makes it register as a golden soda bottle when I look at it, fix that and you're golden :P sorry about that one.
aeshem (author)  PaulMakesThings3 years ago
No, your right. This is my first time doing anything like this and I made a lot of mistakes. I felt really rushed to just hurry up and post because of the new change in voting. So, I hope next time the jetpack will turn out the way I had intended to look.
That's understandable, I've rushed projects to make a due date. It looks good overall, I'm just talking about little improvements.
