    You can look in my thread and see my completed kit. What i did first was drill holes in the flamethrower for the buttons, and then three holes in the side. Then I drilled 3 holes in the side of the gauntlet and screwed the two together. Then I picked up some speaker bezels from Radio shack and made the flamethrower emitters and cut a piece of plastic with two holes, glue the bezels in, then blued the bezel holder in the flamethrower box. Then I epoxied on the bottom of the flamethrower. The halves attach with velcro.

    For the right gauntlet I just drilled 3 holes in the side of the gauntlet and back ofthe whipcord housing. Then I epoxied the back of the WCH and the screws. They were then screwed together. The top cable holder I used two screws (one top and one in the "front") with epoxy on the bottom of the piece. I used velcro for closures again.

    If you need anything more or less detailed, PM me.
