    Well folks my gloves are done! Finally got them back from the Chrome Factory LV. I was kind of upset about how the glove pieces turned out but I guess because of the type of plastic used for Artyom glove kits there was oil rising to the surface and the chrome didn't want to stick to the surface the best, so they are far from perfect but for my purposes they will work fine. From a distance you cant even tell!








    I attached the glove pieces to the glove fabric via super glue. I know, I know... not the best solution but it gets the job done. I did add a foam piece underneath the largest pieces that are on the back of the hands and that helped with those specific pieces but for the rest I just applied the glue straight onto the pieces and then stuck them on the glove exactly where I wanted them. One time shot haha.

    Looking good though!

    The gloves could've been sealed with primer before the chroming.

    What a great build! Both look so slick. The helm is perfectly shaped, looks like the real deal.

    If it was cold and I was outside, it fogged up a lot, especially if I was breathing a lot. But indoors at normal temperature it did fine. Would definitely like to add fans in there though! Will be tricky with my helmet but I know the artyom helmets from eBay come with the holes under the chin like the real GM helmet so adding fans there is easy-peasy.
