    I just finished up my ruffkins, but I didnt use metal parts... however, I did see metal brass fittings at Lowes that match the connections for the 2 hoses. near the plumbing section.

    with metal laser cannon things , which at first I wanted... saw some of those at lowes also... it was not large enough to put in the LEDs I wanted. the resin ones I have look like metal now that I am finished, and I was able to drill them out through the middle and add LEDs that turn on using the switches.

    I have some left over momentary switches, the ones that people recommend ... if you need them and will be at Mega this weekend I can bring them there. Just a few bucks was all they were.

    Would you please post some pics of your modified gauntlets? I'm about ready to buy some of Chuck's gauntlets and would like to know what the possibilities are.
