Final Details!

I took TDK apart into his 3 main sections to finish up assorted details:




Seatbelt end with grommets (one screw already in place)
The seatbelt is so TDK will stick with me while my hands are busy manipulating assorted appendages. I took a too-short military belt that had lost its buckle, cut it in two pieces, and put grommets into the ends so I could screw it onto the base plate for the saddle.

Seatbelt other end, screwed in place
The left end is shorter so that the buckle (a plastic latching buckle like for a backpack) will not be in my lap when fastened

Buckle!

Handle for inside of gun.
That's a 1/8P lamp pipe union jammed into a piece of bamboo. It just screws onto the lamp pipe where it comes through the ball.

Bamboo handle for telescoping arm.
The first handle worked so well, I scrounged around for more bamboo for the innner end of the telescoping arm assembly

inside of the arm handle... you can see the brass lamp pipe union buried inside it.

Coconuts netted together
Not only does stringing them side to side keep them from flipping over, it controls the raffia skirt so the shells stay on top of the raffia

All that's left now is the soundtrack!
