    Hey, just got a pair of X-Squared Carbon. I've never owned a pair and it's hard to find pictures of the temple shocks anywhere that aren't walleva or linegear. Were the OEM temple shocks for X-squared hollowish? Also, can the frame be tightened with the hex screws?

    Oh man, thanks for answering so quickly. Safe! Tightening the hex screws doesn't help, so yeah, gonna have to contact him eventually I suppose!

    Oh I appreciate it, but after seeing pages and pages and pages of compliments on all your work I may just have to send them to you with other x metals that need tightening and refinishing someday in the far future.
