I’d think you’ll probably need some support at the sides for you attach your bars/poles to

Well made a order for mesh but it seems way to stretchy. So 7 m of it gone to waste :/ stretchy more one way than the other but still seems alot .
Thats the black airtex mesh 3 to 4mm holes .. Was given a link but it seems the material is completly different now .attached pic . I did do a vid but unsure how to post
so now struggling to find a decent mesh .

I have got a sample coming that has holes at 3.09mm

https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre ... 3117799790

But struggling to find anything else that could be suitable .

Any suggestions in the uk ?

Thanks in advance .

Hi Dave.

This could be a possibility for you. The listing is for only 1 meter but is Ava in other lengths and other Wookiee’s have used similar. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Polyester-Me ... 0012.m1985

There’s also a good thread on the main forum that could help you

Mesh will be here in the morning 

https://toughfabrics.bigcartel.com/prod ... esh-tf-102 

Made a small video ro show sample . Similar to the collins nets but alot cheaper . Got for just over £8 per M x 1.5m and free postage 

No stretch . Does seem to pull slightly more one way than the other but thats the way nets are made in fairness 

This should do the trick 

2 small vids

Mesh arrived soooo

Back to lifts.
Once i get these right ill put the wooden uprights in line with the poles .
Attempt 3 .
Bit more forward .
Using a strap to hold legs inline with poles .
Strap sitting below knee and on calf .
Maybe move up to knee so strap is directly behind knee .

One pic shows strap tight . Other shows strap a little looser

Line on pic depicts bottom of knee

Small vid of me walking . Right leg strap came off but get the idea

Add webbing to front that i have spare from tk build ( across poles )

Strapping on mine is a bit higher, above the calf and my webbing is more to front than the back.

No progress as yet.
Have some high steppers on order along with some s2 stilt leg bands to accomodate twin supports
Once these arrive can get my undersuit made and make some progress

Know someone in the states who are sending me a set of these

http://www.steppinupinc.com

Pic shows them modified by a wookiee builder in the states which ive had some info on modding them etc

Itching to get started now ImageImage

Fun times ahead :)
High steppers have arrived along with the surpro leg bands so hoping to get these modified asap . Prob be after mcm london though which is this weekend . 

Looking to take them down to 14inches so any advice links and info more than welcome 
Find out what is the best way to attach toes to the high steppers

Also. When done can i have some help with where under suit / mesh should sit . 
Take a pic on the steppers and get a guide as to how low to take jumper and arm length etc

Hi mate.

You should have a look at Keith’s wip as he used a lot of similar stuff such as the high steppers. Link is included below.
