    I purchased some empty Monster Dog frames (polished black, without even the microbag) from an aussie seller for $95 AUD including postage (a little steep I know but I had an extra set of lenses). Anyway he assured me that the frames were as good as new and he considered buying lenses and selling them as a whole pair. The package arrived today and there scratches and marks all over the frames :mad:. I knew my eBay luck wouldn't last but you live and you learn, I have decided not to dispute it and instead use these scuffed Dog's as my running sunnies since it won't matter if I drop them. Could also be a guinea pig for the water transfer project I guess. Just goes to show even a 100% rating does not mean you will get what you paid for. End Rant

    I would mail the seller and request a partial refund. Threaten to open a PayPal dispute (which most of the time go in the buyer's favour) You never know, they may give you a bit of a refund. Worth a shot since you're just going to keep them anyway

    That's a good idea, the eBay dispute is always in my mind but I completely forgot about a seperate paypal dispute, cheers Mickle

    I totally agree.
    Plus, after the partial refund I would leave at least a Neutral feedback explaining the situation.

    Otherwise the seller will never learn, and keep on getting away with an unblemished 100% rating when he is actually a poor seller.

    yup! and if youre going to water transfer them, you can sand it back lightly so the new finish after transfer comes up perfect!
