    The best advice I can give you is not to treat them as the expensive items that they are.
    I am not saying to handle them all rough and stuff but make sure that you gather some confidence and take a close look at them.
    You will want to do test fits as you go along with your trimming. GO into the boba reference cd area and look at it frequently.
    Print off a bunch of the pics for reference while you are working on the pieces.
    There are many ways of attaching the pieces together. Some will use pop rivets. Others will glue one side and use velcro on the inner forearm side. ANd then there are others that will just use velcro entirely.
    I myself will be trying a method of taking a piece of fabric and gluing it to the inside of the upper and lower shell on the outside of the forearm and then using the industrial velcro on the inner forearm enclosure.

    I just got my glass gauntlets and I'm gonna try piano hinge on the inside and high str magnets to close them together. I'll let you know how it goes.

    Boba cop, you can add a bridge in them to extend them That's what I did and it works. I can email you some pics if you like.
