    Who can I buy some raw gauntlets from ? I bid on some on ebay yesterday and they took it off today.*@!#$% LOL!
    Are you talking the shells by saying raw or meaning in kit form? If you're looking for something on a budget, I may have some seconds shells, but not parts.
    Let me know if I can help.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Thanks,
    Cruzer

    Hi Cruzer,

    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.


    Thanks again

    Tony

    Re: Cruzer Jango gauntlet run!

    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.

    Re: Cruzer Jango gauntlet run!

    Small update:
    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.

    Thanks,
    Cruzer
