I’m calling these gauntlets 98% done. Just need to install the accurate led light when it comes in. And craft a accurate switch post out of plastic to hide the led lamp switch. The led is wired as will.
What I have on hand to work on is Girth belt dye, chest led, toe spikes, shin tools, weathering hoses, range finder led light wiring. Also have collar studs coming this week from MachineCraft. I can install them on the collar piece and cod with the Velcro belt.
So I thought I do a little update to keep the flow going. I have a ton of little things to do. But with the holidays it’s going slow. But that’s ok. Just got my helmet fans from henrysHelmetfans. Also need to weather the hollow stalk from MachineCraftReplicas. Also install the range finder lights from Jc27. Also still working on the gauntlet switch.
Catching up on some little things. Got the new lamp in and wired. Epoxied the round hole and made a slot for the slider switch. Still need to make a switch thing cover extender. I’m happy the way it turned out.
Also I ordered my flight suit today from Carole. So I have plenty of time to get the other things done. 4 months estimated for the flight suit.
Finally back at it. Dyed my Mohair girth belt. I used MinWax Red mix Sedona red. This is soaked onceonce. Squeezed out the excess and blotted with rags. I will see when it dries if I need to do it again. I lost a picture when it has dried.
