    Hey Guys,

    Here's an update for those still patiently waiting for your pre-ordered set of gauntlets..

    I'm at a stand-still until the temperatures get at or above freezing here

    I could manage a few weeks ago with the temperatures at or around the freezing mark. The resin took several hours to cure between each coat and I apply six coats and follow up with two reinforced coats. With the help of electric heaters and such I slowly moved along but now it's in the teens and has been since last Thursday. I can handle the cold weather in fact I like it but grinding away at fiberglass in 12 degree temperatures makes the fiberglass extremely brittle and as a result has caused a lot of chipping and breakage which sucks !

    I'm hoping by the end of the week the temperatures will have gone up some and I can resume work but for now I'm SOOL

    Sorry guys,

    p.s. This is me in my garage 2 days ago, just look at my freak'n workbench !

    And I thought we had it bad. But in your right hand, why on earth do you have a shotgun? I mean neighbors can be hostile, but that hostile!?
    /I hope everything turns out well for you!

    So did you have to go searching for that screencap or did you already have it saved on your computer?

    Wow, Christian, has anyone ever told you that you look just like Kurt Russell?

    Maybe you should install a functional flamethrower in a gauntlet and use ir to melt the ice.

    I think that pic at the top would make a great topic for an 'insert the caption' game.

    It's from The Thing (John Carpenter's Remake which ROCKS by the way)
