    Hey all, if this is in the wrong area, please accept my apologies. I have been reading this site for a while now and have finally decided to refinish and old pair of night camo monster dogs I have. The frames are great, but the original gunmetal icons lost there finish and turned almost blue. So after reading , I decided to take them off and refinish them. My luck, I broke them taking them off. I have contacted Oakley about buying a spare set but the don't have this option, does anyone have an idea or can point me in the direction of a spare set?

    Didn't realize this was gonna be like finding Bigfoot .......never fails
     
  3. Best bet is either finding someone parting out a frame, or sourcing a pair that uses the same icon. I know o-review used to have a database of what size and style of icon each pair used, maybe do a little searching around there and see if you find something that looks close.

    Based on what I found on the site , the only other type that uses the same icon are the eye jacket 2.0. So I have been searching ebay and elsewhere. Hopefully I'll come across a couple.
     
  5. Icons are often harder to find than lenses. If Oakley ever offered OCP on the frame there is always a chance someone somewhere has icons. If not, you either have to wait for someone to scrap out a pair with good icons, find a cheap donor pair for icons, or source a suitable frame to pull them from. None are really very good options, and I wish Oakley had done a better job of seeing people's desire to have more custom color combos including icons.

    Of course you could always do the sensible thing and abandon your O-matter pairs in favor of X-metal ones that don't have icons hahaha.

    I appreciate the info. I apart would scrap these if they were not the first pair I ever bought and the frame that they are. The glasses have been through a lot and I wanted to breathe some new life into them.

    My main pair that i just sold had a custom swap to orange icons, if i am not mistaken the previous owner who was the one that did the custom job said they were from pitbulls, i know there were no monster dogs with orange icons that i remember.
