I almost feel bad for bringing it up, I just know it got caught after I got admitted and was a suggested fix since they missed it on my app. Im just trying to think how I'm going to fill the dents with Rubber knees :(

No biggie, I didn't think about it. It was easy fix.

Dents are gone.

Straps are on.


I just gotta some 2" sticky Velcro tomorrow for the knees fronts to hold on to the suit.

Gauntlet closer's done. I used 3/4" rare earth magnets and epoxied them to the gauntlet shells and then I put Ave's Apoxie sculpt over them to make sure they won't ever pull off. These hold the shells together strong. I only had enough magnets to do one side on the left shell, but it is holding together strong. I may get more magnets just to make sure it doesn't bounce open, though I doubt it will now.



Right shell is almost done. I gotta start to drill holes for greeblies.

Greeblie's added to left gauntlet.


Flamethrower holes drilled for mounting to gauntlet, switches, and wires.




Magnets attached for easy bottom removal of flame thrower plate for easy access if I put electronic in there.

Thanks!
Gauntlets are slowly getting here. The new hose is bigger and stiffer then the old hose and is causing problems of the gauntlet opening up when under pressure. So I got to add some Velcro to help keep them closed. I also made a new hose restraint system under the sleeve to help hold hoses in place and it works good so far under tests.


I got metal darts from Shapeways coming this week. I hope to add two LEDS to the right gauntlet as well.

Gauntlets are pretty much done except for adding the LED's.

Fantastic idea with the elastic band. I'm having issues with my hoses right now. I will try your method.
