    What are these pieces used for?

    I have an ESB gauntlet/armor kit from FettPride and have a few pieces that I am not sure what they are used for. The two pieces with two holes and the green plexiglass.



    There are also two pieces missing from my gauntlet kit and I was wondering where I might could find them.

    Gauntlet Piece 1
    and

    Gauntlet Piece 2

    Also, if anyone has any good ESB gauntlet reference pics I am having a hard time finding them.

    The green welding visor material goes behind the chest armor slots after you cut them out. Between the armor and LED's if you use them.

    The resin pieces are part of the knee armor. You would drill holes in the knees for the knee darts and use these resin pieces as retainers for knee darts.

    Pics of gauntlet pieces are too small to make out...

    Ah. That makes sense now. I ended up screwing the pieces to my knee armor. I may go back and drill holes to use with the resin pieces. Is that what they did in the movie?

    Here are the pieces outlined.

    Sort of. If I remember, I think they were just bolted/screwed to a plate that was then glued inside the knee armor in that position. FP's method is more secure and professional.

    The guantlet pieces flamethrower pieces should be included. One is the top button from the rear and the other is a tip. If you got them directly from FP I'm sure he'd send you the pieces. I was missing a tiny part once and he sent it no problem.

    Just keep at it... I'm also trying to get in touch... eventually you will get him. You gotta realize he's one guy (with a job and a life) doing work for probably hundreds of members here. So don't worry.
