    I used pieces of foam I bought at WalMart and hot glued them to the inside of my gauntlets. Since I have small arms and my gauntlets were quite big, I had to use a lot. Fit great and you can't even tell there is foam inside!

    I use self-adhesive weather stripping. You can find it at Home Depot. It's a roll of foam that's roughly an inch around on each side and has a self-adhesive back. Just cut small lengths of it and place it where you need it.

    Works great for gauntlets

    To anyone else interested, it can also be used to pad a helmet, or to make Stormtrooper armor fit more closely (in the arm pieces. It also can be used to reduce pieces rubbing against each other, chipping paint or gloss-finishes, and helps cut down on that clacking noise from the pieces hitting each other.

    Great stuff,
    Phil

    I also have a pair of highly modified RA gauntlets & I used spray contact cement to adhere a thin piece of foam to the lower half of the gauntlet shells. No problem with slippage at all!
