I need your help regarding guantlets. I just got mine and cut them to size, reformed them, and secured hinges on. All that went fine and dandy.
Now, I need help securing the open end. I don't have time to order magnets, as that would normally be the way to go. I need your advice! I would post a picture but I cannot right now. I'll try to get one up soon.
Anyways, I was thinking maybe use two "parachute clips" (the things with the tabs on either side that you push in to unlock) on each gauntlet epoxied on the inside, so they can clip together. If I don't get any responses soon that's the way I will go, as I already have the clips and I need to start painting these guys.
Also, I have a question about attaching armor to the flak vest. I made my armor and would like to attach it ASAP, but I don't wanna ruin my very decent vest for some temporary armor. What's a good way to attach the armor? Should I attach it using the snap method and just remove the snaps from my armor when I'm done with it and attach them to better armor when I get it?
I'm in a pinch and would absolutely love some feedback. Thank you!
