I'm having a small problem with my left gauntlet. I have it hinged on the inside of my left arm with velcro on the outside edge of the left arm. When I looked at it today, I saw that the hinge had pulled away from the plastic - thru a layer of epoxy and JB weld. I examined it a bit closer and it looks like there is a slight warp in the top section of the gauntlet where the hinge attaches to. I'm thinking this is putting pressure on the hinge and causing it to come apart.
My question is how do I fix it? Could I heat up the plastic and try to straighten it out? Do I bolt the hinge on? Or do I replace the hinge completely with velcro? I'm not sure what the best way to proceed is.
Ultimately I'd like to just get a new gauntlet. But until then I have to make this work. I'm open to anything.
