Incredible conversion on the wand! I've been itching to pick up a second Spengler wand to do a 84 conversion but it looks like I've waited too long! Since the announcement of the Haslabs pack, the things are sold out everywhere!

You can preorder them again from most sites. I picked up two more to play with. Should be shipping in the new year. Def don't pay scalper eBay prices.

My loom hose finally arrived, so I'm getting close to finishing this up... drilled a 20mm hole in the pack and used dremel to open it to match the hose size:

For the vac hose, I taped a pvc pipe to give me something to glue better into the vac tube:

Drilled another hole into the bottom of my shell (decided not to cut all the way to the edge as I figured this will give better grip to the hose:

I taped another pvc tube piece into the hose (on the inside of the pack) to keep it from slipping. You can also see my temporary red film I taped in until I get my lighting set up:

I connected the hose (about 3.5 feet worth) to my wand using Hasbro's connector piece and added some tape at various points of the tube:

Looking good!

I finally decided to do the final aging. I started by spraying some silver chrome spray paint onto a palette then dry brushing the pack with a 2" brush. I added additional distressing using a brown acrylic wash (just brown paint with a little water) and brushed it into all the nooks and crannies:

And here is my nearly final beauty shot (just need to add lights, which will include cutting the window for the blue LEDs):
