    So I've seen this many times, people break or loose gaskets for there oakleys, and there out of luck when trying to call HQ. So i was thinking, since I have my laser cutter.. I should be able to cut these out of rubber material. Does anyone have an interest in this project? We could do the Romeo 1.0 Kits and also I was thinking of the rubber inside the nosebriges of the X-Metals..... What I would need from you guys is a set of all the gaskets we would want to duplicate (don't worry.. no harm will be done to the originals!) Whoever sends me the originals to use for measurements, I will send them back along with a free extra set I cut. we could do these in different colors as well! Lets make a list of what gaskets we would like to have recreated and you guys post who can help with original gaskets for measuring!

    Ill start it small... I will also post this on o-review. I will edit this list you see with the updates from both sites...... Lets try to do this!

    - Romeo 1.0
    - Juliet
    -gaskets
    -Nose Bridge Gaskets

    the nose bridge gasket for the X Squared would be nice..:biggrin: since the XS has screws on the bridge so anyone can replace it with out sending it in for a tune up.

    I'm not to sure yet. Going to try diff materials, rubber, that hobby foam even. See what works good. I want to stay with rubber though as close to stock as possible
