Crosshair 2.0 OO4044-03 Frame: Lead Ear Socks: Black Lens: OEM - Black Iridium Polarized (scratched) Lens: Replacement - Ice Iridium (43-315) Well, ... this sort of came out of an "inner" forced necessity rather than a "want", as the frames were A-OK. So a week ago I decided to tear down a few that needed it before I leave for vacation this Tuesday. I bought these Crosshair 2.0's on the Exchange, & absolutely love them *! !*, but I have wanted to tear them down, along with others, to give them a full cleaning, etc. before leaving for vacation here on Tuesday. Well upon backing out the first orbital screw, I see some corrosion on the threads, ... then it felt difficult to pull the frame apart so I could remove the first lens. So on to the other screw. Same, only a little more corrosion. Ugh. Carefully I use the tip of a very, very small, flathead screwdriver to pry the "joint" apart without scratching the back side of the lens, nor the frame. The loosen up, & pop out to reveal a horror of corrosion in there - I regret not taking a photo of it. Then, looking at the frame itself, some of the actual "Lead" coating, on the underside of where the corrosion was, & a little under one of the orbitals was actually flaking off. Needless to say, I was annoyed, & my OCD, ADHD, & a touch of my Tourette Syndrome kicked in. I knew what I had to do! I grabbed a wad of steel wool & the best metal polish that I know to exist, Killer Chrome, by Surf City Garage ... & I went to town! I was a polishin' fool! Nothing but elbow grease, little pieces of steel wool, the Killer Chrome, & perseverance. The intention was to rock these Crosshair's all polished out like a chrome bumper on a '55 Chevy. Well, ... here goes nuthin'! Here is a photo I found online to show the "Before" ... ... & my finished results ... So, ... not really a modification, per se, but definitely a change in appearance that I felt I needed to do to attack the issues I found. Eh, .. What do you folks think? Does it belong here? Was it worth doing these glasses? Go ahead, let me have it!
