  1. Apr 29, 2011, 7:29 PM - MOW Preproduction Gauntlets #1

    Hey Guys,

    Wanted to start a new thread on the Preproduction gauntlets progress.

    The upper and lower sections are made of gel coated epoxy resin reinforced with 3 layers of fiberglass strand clothe. The epoxy is very strong and far less brittle than traditional polyester resin. The dry time is hell but the end product is worth it!

    Lots of metal fabrication here!

    The metal work is laborious, time consuming and expensive but the overall assembly is fairly easy.

    A limited run of these may come available soon but I gottah warn you guys, "It's gonna hit the wallet"!

    More to come..

    Christian

    Darn nice, a thing of beauty , Ive never seen the 2 hose attachments on any b4 , that really finish's them of some,
    When you say "hit the wallet" Im guessing it must be there,, any loose indication on what we are expecting

    I want a set of these too
  15. May 18, 2011, 7:05 AM - Re: MOW Preproduction Gauntlets #15

    Hey Guys,

    I'll be auctioning off a fully assembled set of these on eBay in the next day or so to get a general sense of interest in this version?

    Due to overall cost and fabrication time a kit version seems unlikely...I'll wait to make a final decision after the auction?

    Thanks for the thumbs up guys...

    Best,
    Christian
