    I just got this nice and brand new pair of 1.st generation Minute FMJ Violet - but, and I knew this when I bought them, the frame has some birth defects.
    Can any of you custom paint guys work some magic on them ?? :).
    Thanks

    Better take a closer look. Do I see cracks in the orbitals?

    I think it's only superficial ...

    I'm not 100% certain - but it doesn't seem to be cracked through - there is no flex, which I would assume there would be.
    Would you recommend carefully sanding of the paint to check if it protrudes deeper ?

    Are you going to do a 100% repaint on it?

    I assume I have to - though I don't know enough about the process to estimate...
    But it depends on the cost - since I'm in Europe the shipping alone is a bitch. And I don't know of anyone around here who can do it.

    OK, if your going to do a complete strip and refinish... your going to lose the print on the bridge. However looking at your frame that appears to be what it needs. Cool thing is you can go back with any color combo you want. Marc2040 had a thread on how to strip the finish off of OMatter frames and leaving them like new. Its on here somewhere. I hope your not in to deep on these already as its gonna take some time and $$ to bring them back.
