    Hey everyone!
    Just wondering if anyone may know of where it would be possible to look for vacuum formed ESB gaunts? I may be in the market this summer for some so any help I can get would be great. I have fiberglass ones currently but would love to get vac-formed ones. Thanks for any assistance!

    RKD has vac formed gaunts that you can get just the shells for. You'd have to source the remaining bits. He's the only maker I know of using vac formed for both top and bottom halves....

    Ah yes I've seen those. I thought Fettpride had a whole kit going but I could be wrong

    FettPride haunts have cast resin tops and vac formed bottoms, I think. You get the whole kit, but be aware of the materials, seeing that you're in the market for vac formed only.

    Yeh FP/Chris does Gaunts for both,it's getting hold of him though he's a busy guy,but worth the wait as he's the leading pioneer in fett related parts and a true gent:-)

    FP gaunts are currently fiberglass tops with vac-formed bottoms. He will do all FG for an up charge. I figured the split was best of both worlds. Good sturdy top, and I'll fasten to my arm with some elastic strapping. Then just use Velcro to attach the bottoms to the tops....

    I like the half/half idea better i think. less weight but the more important parts are sturdy. thanks for the help everyone
