    Got an email today that Oakley has finished re-assembling my frame I sent in pieces and installed the Emerald green rubber. Crossing my fingers everything was put together correctly. Will post pics once I install the Emerald Iridium lenses which are in hand and ready.

    No. That was attached. But I've had them send frames back from tune ups that had swinging loose earstems that they didn't put new washers in etc (and had them over tighten not loose earstems to the point of trashing the washers).

    I agree you its not rocket science, but there's no accounting for laziness or lack of proper training/experience.

    It'll be interesting to see the green set on the X-Metal finish. I've only seen it on polished and my own Plasma.

    haha thanks! Kinda have to.. with each tuneup costing almost one O-Matter frame these days, and considering how many X-metals i have (and some still on the way), i'd be down alot of $$!
