    Sep 13, 2006, 2:51 PM - I FINISHED MY GAUNTLETS #1

    I GOT THIS FIBERGLASS GAUNTLETS LONG TIME AGO ON EBAY IN A GOOD LOW PRICE, BUT THERE WERE IN BAD SHAPE, I HAD TO SPEND LONG HOURS TO MAKE IT LOOK LIKE THIS. THEY ARE NOT THE BEST OUT THERE, BUT THEY ARE GOOD TO ME.
    PLEASE ANY SUGGESTION OR IDEA LET ME KNOW.

    It would be interesting to see what you started out with. Looks like you did the best you could with them. Congrats!

    Russrep makes an aluminum one.

    But for a suggestion, I think I know who your gauntlet maker was, and I had gotten a pair in what is probably similar quality, and had to make do. One of your best friends will be Bondo Glazing putty.

    That helps to fill in all the seams left from the brushing epoxy in. that will make them nice and smooth, then get some of that rub n buff stuff, and it wil work wonders.

    They look real good though, nice job you did with them.

    They do look really good. Question though ... are the hoses long enough for you? Just kinda hard to tell from the picture.

    Slight suggestion, you may want to take the CAPS LOCK off when you type. When a message is writen in all caps, it is usually read like the writer is yelling (which I don't think you are doing.)

    Yep some body glaze and some filler primer those would look even better! After you get those on them sand it down with a 600 grit WET sandpaper. Keep them soaked in water when you are sanding then switch over to 1000 WET sand paper and you will have a fairly smooth surface then slap a little gloss gray on there and then go to rub n buffing!

    coffee crisp? I have to order them in bul fron canada. as for the 3 musketeers, its supposed to be milky way and milky way is supposed to be 3 musketeers. thats why milky way isnt milky and has 3 parts and the 3 musketeers is milky and is..well thats it. the first day they were made the wrappers were on the wrong machines so they just left them that way.
