    Hi all

    I have a few pairs of Minutes that i'd like to have changed colour - one to match my car (cause i'm sad!) and another that i would really like to be pearlescent. What's the best way of doing this? do people paint them, have them dipped or anodised?

    Also, do the ear socks come off easily enough and more importantly, are they easy enough to get back on?!

    Thanks

    Kevin

    ok, thanks.

    that's what i thought - any particular type of paint or is anything that's suitable for plastic going to do the job?

    You can always send them to one of our painters to be done professionally;)

    not all kinds of paint would work. You'll need extensive prepping and trial & error and follow the instructions carefully of your paint system. Some paints dry within minutes but aren't durable. Others take DAYS to dry (i've had 1 frame taking a whole week because of adverse weather conditions)

    good to know, cheers.

    Where do people get modern polarised lenses for older models of glasses?
