    You've got a point man. I lived in Minnesota for a short period of time so I know what you mean. Today was the warmest day in a while so I decided to try to paint some. Last week was in the teens to the negatives and I didn't get a whole lot done. Oh well. I'll get it done sometime.

    Re: Another gauntlet progress thread.

    Well, I'm not going to post pictures of this because it's gross. But last night I should have just gone to bed instead of busting out the dremel. I was working on a piece to hold my flamethrower nozzles together when the dremel slipped and cut deep into my index finger. Blood everywhere! But let me tell you, I'm sure glad I had some superglue in my toolbox next to me! Works like a champ on cuts.

    Here's the flamethrower attached without the bottom and the nozzles just sitting in there.

    This was after the movie, but before the chocolate milk and toast.

    Superglue fixes everything!

    I've done that before too. Works better than a Band-Aid. Glad you are OK though!

    Coaxial connectors which you can get from Radio Shack:

    Re: Another gauntlet progress thread.

    had a minor mishap while working on the left gaunt. the silver paint marker i was using "exploded" while i was doing some detailing, there's now a little more weathering on the flamethrower then planned. just about done tho, pics in the next couple days. i hate working full time.

    I live somewhere at the south, where it's usually sunny. it's really rare to have rain at where i live, about 5-6 showers per year, if that's a long time. thats why i love rainy days. I guess i'm lucky!

    Couldn't sleep. Wired up the nozzles with some super bright LEDs.
    The right gauntlet is wired up for a RC RF. I'll take pics when the install is clean.

    Re: Another gauntlet progress thread.

    Oh yeah, and speaking of the RC RF, if anyone has found a site with a good servo for the helmet (other than what's already been discussed) please let me know.
