    Fiber glass gaunts...

    I had just picked up a nice pair of gauntlets from a TDH member a little bit ago & they just need a little bit of tweeking to fit right.

    So my question is, can I heat up the fiber glass alittle to just carefully bend it just a tiney bit?

    I have. I just used my trusty heat gun. Be careful when heating. You don't want to melt them or not get them hot enough that they don't bend.

    yeah, there's a VERY fine line between just right and cooked.

    it works great as long as you stay on the just right side of the line

    Just right...gotcha!

    Would a hair dryer be better than a heat gun then?
