    Hello fellow Oakley addicts :) Long time member here but have been inactive for a while. Recently purchased 6 sets of the newer gen X-metals (O-aluminum? :) ) and would like to inquire about options to swap parts for the following items:

    Pewter Frame
    Plasma Frame
    Black Iridium Lens
    Ruby Iridium Lens
    Fire Iridium Lens

    I think black iridium would look OK with the plasma frame. What do you guys think? Thanks in advance.

    I did some part swapping with those same pairs, basically just swapped the o-matter. See this thread...
    A madder madman?

    And then I later had the bottom pair customized further.

    Thanks for the link. For some reason, I like the clear bridge on he plasma. The darker one is too much of a contrast for the plasma frame, IMO.

    Polished frame looks good! Did you do it yourself?

    If you mean the polished frame on pg.2, those were somebody else's. The customization I did later to the ruby pair was coloring the o-matter and icons, work done by chop. There's pics around here but not easily dug up.

    Doing what you like should be what matters. When you finish you can ask how much we like the finished product. ;)

    I'm trying not to mess with the painted T6 screws as much as possible. Already scratched it a bit with one lens swap. Trying to get more ideas prior to tackling the task. Thank you.

    I polished mine out. Love the way they turned out.

    Exactly! It really does. Not sure why Oakley didn't offer this lol. I've been considering different lenses for it but can't decide on a color. Was this king G26 could be cool. Not as usable though.
