    Thanks for the great tutorial. I understand the hinged side but how do you secure the other side?

    The hinge is reversed and the "pin" is used to "latch" it when closed. Look at pic 36 to see it. See how the hinge is reversed? And the pin has a bent arm for grabbing?

    I got my gauntlet kit from him two weeks ago. Contact him and see, but I'd say yes....
    i thought they seemed a bit pricey at first, then I got my kit and wow. I think I ripped HIM off. Outstanding quality and terrific kit, comes with all you need except the rocket and darts.....

    ^^^ Yes, great kit. I bought the gauntlets and thought I was just getting the gauntlet shells, but was all giggly in my little sarlacc tummy to find out on opening the package that it included hinges, dyed hoses, and other little parts too.

    And if you are going for completes screen accuracy, contact Dark Side for the aluminum parts, rocket, darts, whip cord bolt, and Kamino darts. You can see his thread in the cargo hold and view the items. Put these with the Cruz gaunts and you got perfection.

    Anyone that's built these....would you recommend hogging out the inside of the gauntlets to allow the switches to be installed? Or grinding down the switches and glue in place?

    Definitely carefully grind out the areas inside the gauntlets using various dremel bits.
