Looking good, i'm going to make my own gauntlets aswell i think, been looking around for prop makers, but i guess i would learn more if i would make them myself.
Saw a tutorial where a guy took an empty plastic bottle and used foamies, can't remember the name, maybe an idea for me to try, but your Halo gauntlet surely will work for a predator suit, no doubt.

Solid use of the bicycle light brother. Per the gaunt, another great idea for a base. Though, if it were me, I would have kept the scratches in the BONDO coat (HA! See what I did there? Eh, **** off...) to make painting a little easier. Black wash would have filled right in...
