    I got the gauntlets darts and rocket in the mail today, but the 6 small darts on the right gaunt are a little on the big side and I am scared to drill larger holes in the old MOW gauntlet. What do you guys suggest?

    It's been a long time since you posted on this progress. Curious if you're in the 501st as well? I'm sure there are a lot of events up your way.

    UPDATE! Sorry I haven't been updating recently, just been really busy with the holidays and seeing fam. GOOD NEWS! Thanks to my lovely girlfriend and Cruzer's awesomeness I got the last bit of armor I needed to finish my Jango!!!! Totally the best xmas present of all! I have finished rnb on the shins and gauntlets and now I need to trim the backplate and rnb that as well. I just need to wait for the weather to calm down a bit so that I can spend a good amount of time outside doing that. More progress pics coming soon!

    Here's what you need to do if you want your knees to fit snug.

    Attach a pair of female snaps to the knees. I made a slight hole in my fiberglass knees, then glued down the snaps, then added some bondo for support around the snap. as seen in picture one.

    Disregard the snap right in the center of the knee, that was during my trial periods. It's not in use, but that one clearly shows the example on how to attach the snap.

    Then get some elastic and sew the male snaps to them. Make sure to make the elastic nice and tight so that it snugs your knee tightly.

    Then offcourse add the holes in your jumpsuit to slide the elastic in.

    Make sure you have all your armor on before you make the hole in your jumpsuit. make sure its lined up correctly where you want your knees.

    I hope these pictures help.

    Thanks Seeker, I really appreciate it. The knees are a pain in the butt to feed through the flight suit for me. I don't know how it is for everyone else.

    I've got snaps on the sides of my knees to attach them to the flightsuit. I leave them attached so I only have to do up the straps at the back of my knees.

    Helps to keep them from shifting around too much as well.

    I've been working on these knees for hours trying to attach them to the flight suit and I can't seem to get it right. I must have like 8 slits around the knees and still having issues with feeding the elastic thru the slit and out the other side. Does anybody else find this particularly difficult?

    Is there a spray paint color that works for the copper/bronze of the left gauntlet rocket?

    i went to art supply store and got Montana Metallic Copper which looks like a pretty decent match. I went to home depot to see if i could find some black plastic buckles for the hoses but no dice. I did however get around to dyeing the hoses and they look great!

    Great news everyone!!! I FINISHED!!!!! well, almost. I still have to attach the hoses under the sleeve and attach the rocket to the gauntlet, but other than that I'M DONE!!!! WAHOOOO!!!! It's been over a year in the making and it feels SO good to see it come to an end.

    It was incredibly gratifying to finally put everything on and see it all together in the mirror. I owe so much thanks to everyone here at TDH for your support, help and guidance. You are all an amazing group of people. There are too many to thank personally but I definitely want to say a special thank you to BKBT, CRUZER, SEEKER, JANGO 5204, ASOK, JANGO72, JDFETT, FOXBATKILLR, CAPTJONO, JIMMYBUFFETT and whoever else I might have forgotten to mention. Also want to thank my wonderful girlfriend Tiffany (the pink mando) for putting up with me working on this thing for so so long and helping me when i needed another set of hands. Also for keeping me sane!

    This was a trial run so I'm sure there are a couple things that will need tweaking after my first troop at the NY Comic Con coming up this Saturday. I think i am definitely going to need to upgrade my gauntlets and jumpsuit first. But until then, Here are some pics!

    Very cool! It's nice when it finally all comes together isn't it? It's been a long road for you and this whole thread really gives people an idea of how much time, money, and sweat goes into creating a great looking, accurate suit. I just have to dye my jumpsuit this weekend and I should be just about there. Always tweeking though.
