Got my set today. They are definately masterpieces. I got the pieces trimmed and have glued one side of the hinges. I should have them ready to RnB in the next couple days if I get a good working on it on Sunday.
This is definatley one upgrade Im going to make!
The Gauntlets look AMAZING, when do you think the next run will be mate?
Here is where I am at right now with these awesome gauntlets!
Assembled except for the hoses on the right gaunt. Waiting for the darts to dry in place first. Getting close to complete. All RnB'd Hinges assembled. At this point I just need to get the saber darts and the spike. I am loving them!
Those are looking sweet!
Small update: The weekend was just way too busy with family to get any work done. But I did make some new pulls before, so today I'll be trimming those up and preparing the rest of the orders for shipping.
I love them! They fit great. Oh, I am taking that little container of black liquid is a weathering liquid? Because I haven't really looked at it.
Yep, it's charcoal paint for weathering, if you need it. I just sent you a PM about your slider switch and red LED. Glad to hear they fit good.
i just painted my green light with testors tail light red paint...lol i tried putting the other red plastic thing in there and gave up...figured i dont intend on lighting it up anywho...
You have to trim the LED housing just below the threads and then all of the internal stuff will fall out. Then you can push the green lense out through the bottom and insert the red LED I included.
Ok, I'm getting there. The first post has been updated with more shipping updates. Each package has been shipped via USPS Priority mail insured with delivery "confrontation", so a signature will be required for delivery.
I received mine a few days ago along with the holsters and they are both fantastic quality. Your a real craftsman.
Thanks very much.
I feel the need to send you more money for your shin pieces soon.
Any updates on these Cruzer?
No, not really. I spent a good 10 hours yesterday making two new holster molds (4 total)...so that I could get the holsters out asap to the people who are waiting for both gauntlets and holsters from me. So now today I'll put in enough leather for two sets of holsters, and chalk up the rest of the day to setting hinges. The hinge work is now the priority since the gauntlet kits have all been shipped. But there's a catch, I only have enough hinge for 3 sets....so I'm coordinating with Dark-Side to send me more asap.
I'm hitting the gauntlet work hard this weekend since last weekend I didn't have time for any work due to the fact I was playing Jedi at a birthday party most of last Saturday:o and had too many family committments that Sunday.
Tonight I'll be finishing the first two pairs of gauntlets that needed to be hinged. For those members who asked me to hinge their gauntlets, I also decided to finish trim your shells, spot fill any larger air bubble holes in the gelcoat, sand, and apply a coat of primer.
I have about 3-4 sets of shells left that I have decided are too rough to ship because they were damaged or just plain "beat up" as they were sitting around. So, since I'm waiting on more hinge anyway, I'll be making new/fresh shells this weekend for anyone who is still waiting for their gauntlets.
Tonight I'll post some pics of the gauntlets I am currently working on since I haven't been able to create a tutorial thread.
Now I have finished my gauntlets,and i think they looks good,or?
BTW,Thanks again Cruzer for the awesome Gauntlets,and Dark-Side for the great parts !!!
..great work jabo !!!
They look really clean.
You did a great job on them!
Small Update for those still waiting on their gauntlets:
Illandriel, SoulAssassin, & TB750, your gauntlets and/or hinge work is completed and your holsters should be finished by this weekend.
Darksaber212, your gauntlets and hinge work is completed and will ship out by the middle of this week.

Wow Cruzer! these gauntlets look incredible!

Stink, this thread is eight years old.
I have one, new in the box that I am going to be selling soon with my entire kit. Just trying to decide if I sell it with the kit since my gauntlets needed this upgrade, I just didn't do the work. I'll be posting it soon.
