Alright, so yesterday I got my AMAZING Cruzer Gauntlet Kit and I couldn't wait to get started on it today.
So, having not held a file in my hand since 8th grade shop class, I went out and bought a set of large files and a set of hobby files after work today. I immediately went to work on cleaning up the edges of one of the gauntlets and here is my progress.
Advice, tips, criticisms EXTREMELY welcome!
My main question is, how anal should I be about these edges? They're fiberglass gel coated and the gel seems to tend to glom together, especially at the edges so it is very difficult to file down. (This is especially visible on the rear view in the corners.) Any advice? Or am I trying too hard on a space that in reality, no one will ever see (as its jammed into your elbow all the time.) ??
Pics below. Enjoy. (Sorry the focus is bad in a couple of these. I was excited. I will try to do better next time.)
My new toys.
And because I just had to see how it looks on my arm.
Anyway, thanks for looking.
