    Hello all

    I have a damaged pair of Oakley Mars sunglasses, of which I am rather fond. I cannot get them repaired here in South Africa and so was wondering of there is somewhere in the US that would be able to assist please. Any suggestion? I have uploaded two pics showing the damaged section.

    Thank you in advance.

    I must have drank too much for dinner. Where's it broken?

    The little tab that the clip goes around to hold the orbital together.

    ah yes. I knew I should have stopped after my, err, 2nd drink? :D

    That's going to be tricky. I'll see what I can do... if all else fails you're lucky that I have a spare orbital lying around my place. You're also lucky that I'm in Australia....

    Fistly, thank you very much for the reply.

    Secondly, I suspect that I am even luckier since I have family in Sydney who also happen to be arriving tomorrow for a two week visit. I can send the glasses back with them to forward onto you, along with payment. I am very chuffed, thank you once again!

    Don't you just love coincidences :)

    Btw you may want to consider making the most of the shipping and send in any other pairs that need servicing or restoring. Details on X Metal Workshop

    Can you give me an address for shipping purposes and confirm the cost of the repair too please? I have a pair of E-wires that I will be sending for a bit of refurbishment - nothing broken, just need sprucing up.

    Some people can weld titanium, you can ask locally? Altough I don't know X metal's specifics on welding possibilities
