    Yeah, there's a tube, I haven't really figured out how I'm gonna do that yet either Seeker: The parts you used for the hose connectors and the assembly going acros the bottom to the dart.

    yes i see that tube for that second hose- is that the "real" way? what does the other end of the tube (the end that does NOT have the hose attached to it) look like?
    I didnt get a good shot of it at the SWCII. Any info would be apreciated!

    Re: Official Thread - Gauntlets

    my guantlet is not accurate to the real thing but here's a picture of one that it is. the parts you could get them here www.mcmaster.com and look for this part number 50915k101 then select catalog page. But they are called compression tube fittings

    Re: Official Thread - Gauntlets

    Does anyone know what to use to make the flame thrower nozzels?
    I would guess that they would be some sort of fuel line tapered connectors
    or perhaps some sort of plumbing hardare. Maybe even the end of a butane
    torch?

    Please help since I'm at a loss here and would like to try and find the parts
    to finish my gauntlets maybe even this weekend.

    Thanks!

    Do you eman the nozzels at the end where the flames come out? These look close:

    Merged: Black Gauntlet Hose?

    I'm sure this has been covered before somewhere but I'm too lazy to look around for it. I know a few people have had problems finding the right kind of tubing in black color and I'm finally to this point in my suit. For those of you who've got this far or finished, where did you get your tubing, what kind is it, how much, ect.

    Merged: Re: Black Gauntlet Hose?

    I bought some fuel line hose off the roll at an auto parts store. I don't remember the price but it wasn't that expensive. Depending on how you attach your hoses to your jumpsuit, you will about 7 1/2 feet. 1 1/2 feet per hose should be adequate.

    Hey guys I just wanted to point out that the tubing displayed at celebration II was actually a braided translucent blue tube. I have done a few searches and have not been able to find a manufacturer of colored braided tubing. ANyone had any luck with this?

    Merged: Re: Black Gauntlet Hose?

    I used stainless steel braided hose...the kind
    used on washing machines...and colored them black using
    a permanent magic marker. It looks pretty good,
    and they have the couplings already attached that you can
    screw onto various brass fittings (which made
    attaching to the gauntlets much easier!). I bought
    them in the plumbing section of my local home depot.
    Not exactly movie accurate...but pretty close.

    You could always buy some clear hose and dye it blue (which is probably what LFL did). I had to dye some hose yellow for my Ghostbsuters uniform and all I did was run some brown leather dye through it and washed all the excess out. Worked really well:



    You can see the hose on my left leg in that pic. So if they make a dark Blue leather dye, which I'm assuming they do, you might try that meathod out and see how it works.

    All you did was run it through once and it stuck to the inside?

    I had to run it through several times, but it started to dye the hose almost instantly.

    Merged: Gauntlet hoses...how far do they go???

    Just finishing up on my gauntlets and I'm debating on where
    to cut them off at...the middle of the upper arm...the shoulder...
    or further up and into the jumpsuit body itself???

    What is everyone else doing with theirs? I'd appreciate some
    advice.

    Merged: Re: Gauntlet hoses...how far do they go???

    They go in under the outer sleeve of the jumpsuit. I am attaching the ends of the hoses together and they will have a backpack type snap system to attach it to the flightsuit underneath the outer sleeve.

    Re: Official Thread - Gauntlets

    I'm just finishing up my hoses tonight actually and that's the same method I'm doing, the backpack clips. Just using lots of tape and Goop to hold them together.
