    after reading several times a few threads in the forum, I went for it and tryed my first customization.
    the "old" black Holbrook became white and after that I choosed a VL Fire Red Polarized lenses to finish the work.

    I'm pleased with the final result and here are some photos (sorry for the yellow light). I will bring some new photos in the next days.

    during the process I ended up ruining the lens a bit because I insisted on putting them in the frame despite it was very tight because of the paint.
    I hope the mirrored lens not start taking off.

    to avoid painting the chrome pin put a little fat (butter) and so the paint did not adhere during painting.


    hope you like.

    greetings from Portugal

    I have another polished black frame and I don't need 2 black frame sunglasses so I prefer to do this way.
    and it's cheaper...

    well, it's not really the regular butter we use in bread. I don't know how you say in english: we call it "margarina" and is thicker.
    the icon was painted with a small brush.
