    anyone know how to straighten out Radar frames?
    One arm is raised when laying flat on a table with no lens in them

    I thought maybe some warm to HOT water before trying to reform them.

    I just trim my sideburns to make it look like one ear is higher than the other and it all balances out.

    Cool
    Thanks

    I scored 2 new polished black frames on the bay for $39 shipped each.
    he showed them as being twisted and out of shape.
    I was sure warm water and some patience would fix them.
    Prob gonna paint these custom this summer
