No, I'm not going to become more accepting. I'm going to make things conform to me. Got a Crosshair from member btr, polished chrome frame with VR28 black lenses. I thought I'd be ok, but the polished chrome frame just feel gaudy. It took a little while, but I stripped the frame down. Just look at it, sitting there and just shining. Bleh. SO pretentious. A few hours with some 1500 grit sand paper, and the finish is toned down quite a bit. It's still chrome, still shines. But it's a lot more pleasant. I didn't get every spot 100%, so some of the nooks and crannies still have a polished finished. But they feel and look more like natural metal frames. I'll get some better pics if the sun comes out.
