    Ah nice - I'm doing something very similar for a first custom but wanted to paint the indivitual pieces first. I like how you used the original forearms as bracers - how'd you pull that off?

    I used a dremel and cut the hand off then removed the treads on both parts supper glued the original forearm in-between. they fit amazingly well like that.
