    This was the most challenging part. The new pack has a mess of wires around the Clippard valve running all over. God only knows what the thinking was here. No one has any idea how the wires are run in the dark channels of the pack, so I did the best I could. I'm mostly happy with it.

    We even have a couple running up on the top of the booster tube:

      So, the two red wires are now run. The bottom one has tape wrapped around it and two clamps installed, perhaps to hold it together? At any rate, I'm happy with it.

        Here's the first wire coming off the side tubes. The strain relief things are also a new Afterlife addition. This wire had some yellow tape wrapped around the bottom.

            I'm dressing up as the lesbian. Wait, that doesn't narrow it down, does it?

            Great job, ox. I'm liking the Afterlife project even more than the original. I think it's the weathering, which you're correct in saying is an art.

              The Afterlife pack continues to come along nicely.
