    Ruffkintoy gaunts- FINISHED

    Updated 6-11-06

    I repainted my gauntlets!! I decided that the original color I used was to dark. I used Wisconsin Central maroon for my first attempt. On my second attempt I used Rock Island Maroon and I think it turned out much better.

    Check out pics below!!


    I wanted to thank RUFFKINTOY for a great set of gauntlets. He also put them together for me including metal hinges!!

    here are some pics of them after my paint job!! All I need to add is the hoses and switches to the right gaunt!!

    Those look really great! In the first pic they almost look black, but when you scroll down they look much better!

    Those look awesome! Nick work DM. Was there any additional cost for the thicker material? I would be interested in getting another set that was thicker.

    Ruffkin - top notch stuff for sure!

    yes...additional charge for the hinges, thicker plastic and for him to put them together. It was worth the money!!

    PM him for details

    Looks really good! I definitely agree that it was worth the extra $$ to have the the hinges put in ... must make it pretty easy to put on and take off.

    Can you show some pics of the closed gauntlets with the hinge? I am wondering how much of it you see.

    Your gauntlets look awesome!!! Could you sell me an unpainted pair? I'm making some Mandalorian armor and your gauntlets are perfect and I definitely couldn't make any as good as yours.
