    So i bought an xmetal juliet off Ebay for what to me is a reasonable amount of money, sent her for a tune up at oakley Singapore, sanded and polished some bits, and now shes sporting what i coin an "XP" finish (xmetal/polished). Lenses are jade polar cut by IH awhile back.

    i left the inside of the nose bridge and the tips of the earstems in xmetal just to have some variation. Earstems just for the contrast, nose bridge to minimise reflection from inside :)
    and of course the serial A little diy juliet project - DSC_0527.jpg

    Good job on doing the custom work yourself. It looks nice with the jade lenses also.

    Yeah e jades are awesome.. Pretty decent to look thru too. Neutral colours with just a subtle touch of blue. @InfiniteHero cut them from Flak xljs. the frames are a good match too. The jades were loose in the plasma frame they were previously in. Snug in these :)
