Where do I buy these parts for my FP ROTJ gauntlets???

    Where do I buy these parts for my FP ROTJ gauntlets???

    Where do I buy the following parts for my FP ROTJ gauntlets? I've circled the different parts by different colors for easy clarification.





    Darts (red circles) - ????
    Hose connectors (purple circles) - ????
    Nozzles barrels (yellow circles) - ????
    Small buttons (orange circles) - ????

    If anyone can designate to me what these parts are and where I can buy them at, it would be a great help. Thank you for help.

    At radio shack
    You can get the buttons there,as well as the flamethrower nozzles.
    The nozzles are coax cable connectors.I think tk-409 has the part #'s in his site

    Here is what they look like installed

    Do you have the actual part names and part numbers? I'll go today if you can supply them. Thanks!

    Did you attack a switch to turn on the LED or do you just plug it up and go?

    No I have a basic understanding of wiring just wondering.

    I had to order those parts from Radio Shack since they didn't have them in stock.

    How do you attach the flamethrower nozzles in place?

    I cut the tips off of the resin ones,dis-assembled the coax cable ends, Filed down th resin ends so that the coax cable ends would fit over the resin.
    Sound hard ? It's not after you start the task

    Slave1pilot,

    I have no knowledge of wiring and such. I usually just run the battery straight to the light. Can you post the info on how you ran the switch?

    Switches from radio shack usualy come with instructions for wiring. If not ask the man/women behind the desk. They should know.

    The kids that work at the Radio Shacks here can barely tell me where or what a part is, much less how to wire one.

    Hope this helps.

    They also sell led lights(for the left gauntlet)
    I just received my parts in the mail from Radio Shack. The pushbutton switches seem a bit too big though compared to the one pictured in reference photo. Is there a smaller size for these? The model #275-609 looks too big.

    Kapitein Iglo found the real black buttons a few years ago. I can't remember the brand and such, but he had to buy a ton of them in order to get them. He may still have some left.

    Here is some info on the hose connectors:
