Hey everybody, I am kiiiinda new here so I know that there is a thread somewhere around here or post, but as you all know there is just so much ground to cover on here. I have a pair of Oakley XX FMJ 5.56 with the Ice Blue Iridium lenses that I am in the process of restoring. They are my first ever pair of Oakleys that I acquired, and from what I could remember, you were only able to obtain 'em through the catalog as when they first came out were like limited editions for the time, so they kinda mean dear to me, so I am not much into looking into buying a new pair of the same through ebay and such. I'd rather utilize my money on something I already have if that makes any sense. Well, I am looking into stripping down the paint that's on em right now as they are turning black in certain areas such as the earsock, nosepad, inside nosebridge, and pivots, and repainting them to, well not their original color but something that is very VERY close to it. Can anyone point me in the right direction on where I can obtain such information and whether this can be done on my own, or if I would be better off sending them to someone around here as I have seen that there are someone folks here that have amazing talent in restoration and customization. I would like to continue to wear them on a regular basis, so a pint that is very durable, even to maybe sweat is what I am kinda looking for as a final output. I have obtained the original earsocks and nose pads, which is the first big step as they are hard to come by now-a-days. Thank You so much everyone, as all of your opinions, suggestions, and knowledge has been very helpful.
