    Was looking for some feedback and/or opinions on the frames I had dipped this past week. I have a friend that owns a shop and does dipping. I do some powder coat for him and asked about doing some oakleys for me. These were assembled a day early so I could see his work before I go on a trip next week (clear not dry). I asked him to do a different finish on each and I really like the matte finish on any digital, but its nice to see what the finish does to each. Best part is he will spray/dip the icons. So, what says the forum?
    On a side note, I will take better pictures when I find the battery charger to my Canon.

    I had him paint the icons the base primer he used before dipping. What should I be looking for in quality? Seems nearly impossible to make them perfect.
