    This beauty showed up yesterday. I couldn't leave it alone though. Went ahead and polished out the orbitals... Kind of a Ti02 look. Lots of sanding and polishing but I'm very happy with the results. I should post in the DIY section too perhaps.

    Looks like it was in good shape to begin with. I think I would have waited for a beater pair to polish, but it looks cool. Congrats on your new R1.

    Oh yeah... it was in great shape... I have no need for two identical frames though haha. Honestly not real concerned with originality.
    Thank you bro!!

    Lol, thanks bro! Appreciate the encouragement and tips. It was harder than I expected but I think next time will be a lot easier. Learned some tricks along the way.

    Thank you @thisguy ! I need to get some better shots of the polished. It looks so much better in person.
