    These have been in my hands since last year. Was hit by a truck on my motorcycle so project sat for a while. Friend wanted red and black and I thought it wouldn't look good. I think it turned out stunning and the pictures don't do the anodized red powder justice. Started as a carbon juliet that was well worn. Sanded up to 2000 grit to get a perfect polish and began powder. I used a matte finish black on orbitals, tried flat and didn't like the contrast with the anodized powder. I'll try to get more pictures up with a camera other than my phone with good lighting and lenses installed.

    I have worked in a powder shop for close to two decades and have never been brave enough. Nice work .Prismatic has some really custom colors

    Me neither! When my friend offered them up I was very hesitant, but just took my time and did a couple tests with flow out and cure on the titanium. I use Eastwood powder as of now but have seen some really wild new powders out there. Thinking of trying the gold metallic for a 24k look. I also have some pearl dust in a few different finishes that are supposed to be powder friendly.. will try it out on something other than metals though!

    may be @xmetalmaniac could cut a custom pair for you if you get lenses.. you would need to send frame in thow . That's how he makes such great cuts, one custom cut pair of lenses at time to perfectly fit your frame. his prices are very reasonable

    I have a pair of ruby and black polar lenses, just been slacking on assembly and I didn't want to give up my ruby lenses because I think it's going to look too good to remove.. Guess I'll have at it. Just finished new rivets and rubbers so, might as well complete the assembly.
