    Does anyone know if Oakley will tune up a Juliet which has the nose bridge rivets removed? I might be getting a pair which needs a tuneup but I would like to see what it looks like inside before I send it in.

    Any info would be appreciated.

    i think someone on here has deconstructed one already, nosebridge et al. i dunno where the picture is though - im sure someone will find it. nothing special - i have my old FC's in a ziplock bag and there are just metal tabs with holes connected to the orbitals in there. the FC's are a rubber piece that wraps/folds over the tab.

    As I recall, someone asked the techs at HQ that exact question and the reply was that they don't mind at all because it saves them time.

    I already took some completely disarmed frames and they put them together with no problem.

    Thanks everyone! I might be getting a wasted Ducati Juliet and wanted to know if I could tear it apart completely and see. Depending on how bad it is I might want to try some different finishing methods.

    That might be a option. The seller hasn't responded since yesterday so I don't know the status of the sale.

    Hey, have you tried blasting with Baking Soda. I know it's less abrasive than other media. I like the look of your work but I don't like the really dark grey look. Wanted to take the pair apart and try the baking soda to see how that comes out.

    Was also thinking of trying the baking soda on the o-matter frames too just to get a different look.

    What do you think?
