Cut the gauntlets in half to get rid of excess space & add the seams.

How are you keeping the two halves together? We used magnets for my dad's, but they kept coming loose if he gestured too much.

That’s still not 100% decided, but considering something out of the Mandalorian playback. Adding piano hinges to the other side as well and making the hinge pin removable. I was also considering the magnets, but I may have trimmed a bit too much to have space for the magnets to meet face to face.

I’ve also decided not to fight with wiring in the LEDs right away. I don’t want to rush the electronics over the next few weeks getting ready for DragonCon. Will go ahead and glue the LEDs in place and do the electronics later.

Oh yes, the sanding of 3D prints is essential, but a pita. Razz Still have to be done, even on the backside.

Using a but of the extra piano hinge I had left over, I attached with E-6000(24 hour cure time) and put some electric tape on the hinge pins for grip and an extra layer of paint is currently drying.

LEDs next and looking to wire them up down the road. With 15 LEDs per gauntlet, really need to look at battery costs for doing that.

That hinge idea is really clever! I'll pass that along to my dad.
