    So here's my newest addition to the family! A wearable original A-Wire that pieced together from various sources.

    Frames and hammer style earsocks from Oakleyman2424. New OEM lenses from an EBay Auction (25 bucks), and nose pieces from my first pair of Oakleys from 1998 that are now trashed because the now wife sat on them in the car while we were dating. While they aren't my original black color they still bring back memories.

    And here is my complete wire collection including the '98 pair on the far left.

    They are just pressure clamped in there. The stem into the metal bracket is a harder plastic then the nose piece and there are crimp notches holding it in. I just wiggles it out but there is also a slit on the bottom of the nose piece metal bracket where you could pry it apart if needed to release the pressure on the nose pad.

    Just as an aside, I really dig that soapstone counter you have. Looks just like mine :)

    Swanstone countertops are nice too. They look and feel like real rock, but are super durable.
