    Does anyone here ever experience a broken hinge on the leg stem? I want to know how did you fix it? Just apply superglue? Thanks in advance.

    Actually, i sent it out for a custom paint then received it yesterday. Noticed the hinge area was a bit unusual. So I removed the leg. I thought it was because of the paint, then it was actually because of the broken hinge. I sent the sunglasses out with everything and remove the lens and stems. I didnt expect the guy to put it back together. I assumed he must have been installed it by forcing the stem a lil bit much. I could see the awkward fixing. Since its a custom paint, I must be broken before he painted them over. Ill post pics later. And now, fixing by glueing it back together is the only hope.

    I would think a super glue or clear epoxy Os the only way to do it. But that might not even work.

    I'd build it back up with epoxy and then form it after it cures.
