Pressure Restraint Garment Modifications

The capsule hatch is 55cm in diameter, so I need to slim everything down significantly. Tonight I grommeted two straps and sewed them as a corset to the back of the suit; this can be adjusted to pull the suit in at the torso. Also added new metal fasteners to the helmet hold-down cables and adjusted placement of the stirrups that fit under the boots to prevent the legs extending with suit pressure.
