    I was sent this frame in the first shot from a fellow Co-Pilot a couple of months back. He saw the chrome postings I was doing and said to to take this frame and see if there was anything I could do to resurrect it? Well, not quite chrome, but considering the steps I had to take to clean it up, the chrome would have looked like crap! But, the alternative I think speaks for itself...What do you guys think??


    Before (mind you I had cleaned off a ton of nasty paint that was on it to start already)

    Here she is all cleaned up and ready to begin it's transformation

    And with the first steps in paint work...Black basecoat with some added fun....

    And VIOLA!! One wickedly cool frame...A new splatter, kind of my take on Atmos, but not quite....

    I think white sox just cuz I don't have access to any that glow like Atmos Jawbone lol...Lens, not sure, prolly black....Or a sick deep G26 might work. It's one of those grey areas...I love loud ass flashy Oakley colors man, luv em, but I think in these frames, they distract from the end product.

    the icons would look great in full blue glow or green glow

    I am getting ready to spray them now. I am thinking neon green glow...or straight black so you don't see them hardly at all. Kind of stealth them out...Or I could do white with a green transparent glow over the top of them...So you only see green when it glows...Will be semi milky looking though, but I think will blend well regardless.
