    Hi, im putting together a set of fuel cells that are going to be matte black with the grey tonal american flag icons and a pair of matte black batwolfs with the american flag icons. Im trying to decide which lenses to get for them. Emerald, violet, or ruby iridiums. Thanks for the help. Im leaning more towarda the violet or ruby but not sure which i would like better. Not leaving out the emeralds tho.

    I'd go for black iridium in the tonals to stay in theme, and ice or ruby to fit in with the colours of the flag in the other pair.

    I put Chrome Iridium Polarized in my Fuel Cell Grey Tonal Flag. I don't do crazy colors or polished frames, and I wanted to put chrome in something.

    Krylon fusion camo ultra flat black. I wet sanded the frames with 1500 to remove the polish then washed them with dish detergent then wiped down with mineral spirits then wiped down with ammonia based window cleaner. Then painted 3 light coats. Let dry for 3-7 days without touching them. they look great now intrested to see how paint holds up to sweat and body oils.

    Its got good reviews from people using it on gunswith very little prep work so we will see. The frames were cracked same with my fuel cells thats why im deciding to paint. If this doesnt hold up well may look into hydrodipping.
