    You can check the oakley website or give a call to their warranty department. Linegear also makes multiple colors.

    +1... they're relatively expensive but made of silicone and will last a long time.

    Linegear's in Japan and ships worldwide.

    They're very easy to do yourself. I haven't done that particular frame myself, but I'm sure if you use the search feature of the forum for "replace Juliet earsocks" or "replace Juliet nosepiece" there will be plenty of previous discussions.

    You can do it yourself, it's pretty easy. Sometimes the earsocks can be a little tough from friction (your polished Juliets are probably the easiest) but a trick is to use a little gel hand sanitizer as lube.

    For the temple shocks, just close the hinge a little way then push them out from the inside. Nose bombs have little flanges on top and bottom you just move the rubber around.

    For the orbital gaskets (and replacing lenses), you need a T6 driver. Don't go too cheap on the driver, a poorly machined T6 can strip your orbital screws and then you're in real trouble...
