    How do you attach the glove plates to the actual gloves? Glue?

    Yep, or double sided foam tape. Just put your hand in a latex surgical glove first then that inside the lycra glove so you don't glue yourself in. As your gluing to a flexible surface try something with some stretch like contact adhesive.
    You can always get some cheap gloves from a dollar store and test fit a piece of plastic on them.

    Re: attatching glove plates to the gloves?

    TK-9336 gives a more in-depth procedure, and it's the method I used. In a nut-shell here's the way I did it.

    I start by cutting craft foam and super glue it to the insides of each plate. Then, using 3M Super Weatherstrip Adhesive applied to the mounting surface of the glove, and the inside of the glove plate, apply pressure for a minute or so, and it's not going anywhere. I wore the glove when doing this, over surgical gloves. You don't want that stuff on your skin, nor do you want to stink the house up with it. It's a task to do by yourself, unless you're ambidextrous....which I'm not. LOL.

    I followed Volpin's way of doing it with the foam and weatherstrip adhesive. I must've not put nearly enough of the 3M weatherstrip adhesive because handplates kept popping off.

    CA glue works like a charm.
