So, this is my right Ruffkin gauntlet, after 3 months of epoxy and sanding. I would have progress pictures, but until last night, I thought the entire project was a lost cause. One of the last things was to decide how to keep the shells closed, so I decided to use styrene, epoxy and magnets. It fits together perfectly, and when it is primed, you can't even see the seam. A word of warning, however, do not use 6 magnets. It closes very forcefully and unexpectedly.
