Well, after a trial run using the previous gaunts in this thread I decided to scrap them and redo the gaunts from scratch using PVC pipe (see pics below). So far I have cut out the gaunts from a single 2' piece of PVC pipe, not sure what size. I have cut them into a top and bottom for each gaunt. I have shaped them using a dremel tool, hacksaw, and sanding blocks. I have also installed a piano hinge so they open and close with ease. Now on to the greebiles. To the left gaunt I've added the start of what will be some blasters. To the right gaunt I haven't added anything yet, I'm wanting the right gaunt to have a holoprojector/tranceiver unit or some other communications equipment. I have a broken calculator that I can scavenge for buttons, etc to use, but I need a few other components. I'll try to update this a bit more regularly since I've started working on the gaunts again. I also need to figure out some sort of closure system to keep the gaunts on, any suggestions? Temporarily the gaunts are being held closed with painter's masking tape until I figure out what I'm going to use.
