I recently purchased two of the Terminator 4 battle fist gaunts and have decided to mod them. I have taken them apart, removed all of the electronics and have cut out holes in the front for my arm to fit through. In order to get these to fit properly I'm definitely going to have to pad them. I've thought of using layers of craft foam, but if anyone has a better idea I'd welcome it. Also, I'm not sure how I'm going to keep it together. The top and bottom shells kind of snap together, but it isn't completely secure so it was held together by many screws. Not sure If I should go the hinge route or if I should just add some velcro strips to hold the gaunts together when I put them on. On the one hand, the velcro strips would be much easier to do. On the other the hinges would be cool, but would take a lot more work and there is of course the chance that the gaunts will be permanently damaged increases. Not sure, will have to give it a think. I'm open to suggestions.
Posted pics below of the progress so far. Sorry for the low quality of the pics, my camera is crapping out on me.
