    Is that lens cracked all the way across? That's some serious frame flexing to cause that.

    yes it is, it's really loose. i already ordered kits from LG and T6 hopefully I can restore it back to original fit, talked to exmetalmaniac and says r1 doesn't need any tuning I guess Ill have to do them myself. wish me luck.
    any tips will be helpful

    I've got some disassembly pics around somewhere. Nothing too serious with the R1.

    is it just a matter of tightening the screws? thanks by the way

    while the other one on the right is super tight maybe because I only wore it a couple times and put away unlike the one on the right was my daily beater.

    Ok, so one screw per orbital, the top side by the nose. You undo that and the bottom is a stud that sticks into the nose bridge.

    Undo the screw

    Orbital pops off

    The lower gasket has a portion that goes into the nose around the orbital stud and stays in place without too much hassle. The top gasket just sits in place and can fall out easily.

    When reassembling you'll have to get the lens aligned and push the orbital shut to get the screw started. Tighten until you feel the resistance change, check to make sure the orbital can flex a bit under pressure. You shouldn't see the upper gasket bulge from being squished.

    Ei bro, you can wash those xmetal parts out mild dish soap, a soft toothbrush and a non abrasive pad to get it back in shape, dry them out with a towel, and qtip, some use a hair dryer. Not sure what kit you got from LG but i would not recommend their lenses, get a member here to cut you some OEM ones as you have probably already heard. As far as the kit, take apart the frame first so you know EXACTLY what you need so maybe you can get it all in one place and enjoy the instant gratification of putting it together all at once. Looking at the wear you may need some orbital screws since it is the fulcrum of the force that broke your lens. Its probably crooked and/or compromised now strength wise. You will almost certainly need some washers for the temples too, when you take out the arms/stems, some plastic washers will come out (if they are still there) usually HQ puts 4-6 on each side (2-3 above and 2-3 below the stem) this prevents the metal parts rubbing against each other when you open your glasses, but also makes 'em feel smooth but not floppy.
