Process

I used the DGX Ultimate Hogarthian Harness13, Halcyon Secure Harness14 and GUE's Equipment Configuration Guide15 to determine the necessary components and to act as templates for the final configuration. I used the DGX Hogarthian Harness Assembly Instructions16 as the basic steps for assembling the harness, backplate and bcd. The BCD and backplate were borrowed from a friend, Cheryl Mitchell. She machined the backplate so only the BCD was commercial!
