Back to the Glue

A pressure test of the suit last night (see above; I've attached a temporary pump hose to pressurize the suit without use of a SCUBA tank; I can pull this later) revealed some leaks at the neck seal -- so I'm back to gluing. The good news is that most of the neck sealing was excellent. Also installed wrist-mount pressure gauge, and have sorted out some issues with helmet overpressure venting.

I have to say it's pretty strange to have a blown-up, human-sized, golem co-occupying my living space for a few hours!
