    Hi,

    Just a quick intro, from Loughbrough in England. Only 3 pairs in my collection so far. A pair of Cheetah Eye jackets which i bought when i was much younger with a Vault case at the same time. only just started collecting really. I bought some gloss white frog skins last year which I have a question about. I also Bought some sea foam frog skins a couple of weeks back.

    The Gloss white frog skins I bought from ebay last year, the guy had a receipt for which oakley uk confirmed, the lenses have delaminated and they were great in sending replacement lens but they were to small, only just. I sent the frog skins to Oakley and they said they are 2nd gen or something along those lines and they don't make they lenses anymore ! can i buy replacement lenses for them else where? you can still see through them ok but Id just like to get them replaced if possible.

    I have a feeling i could become addicted to collecting these. I MAY NEED HELP!!

    Cheers peeps

    Brett

    Welcome to the forum from Hants. I'm not an expert but 2nd and 3rd gen Frogskin lenses should be broadly interchangeable - maybe you just fell foul of tolerances, frames on the large shade, lenses on the small.

    We quite often have to shim lenses in the x-metals with small pieces of paper or insulating tape. Tougher when you're snapping a lens into an o-matter frame, but might be worth a try.
