    Any idea of future pricing for the service? Rough ballpark figure? I wouldn't mind getting my XX refinished with some bead blasting. They're quite dull at the tips of the earstem. Looking forward to your upcoming pics of the process!

    here are some pics i had taken of some really loose xx,the finish was blasted and new rubbers installed.the front of the pins are smooth but flat and they are pressed in without expanding the original hole diameter in the bridge.the finish in the photos seems rough but they are smooth.these glasses were unwearable before but they should outlast the rubber that oakley uses by 10x.hope he gets some new lenses and a rubber kit and these will be like new again.the other blasting media i use will make them more of a lighter color .i have some pics on here of my juliets to refer to that used this lighter media.

    How much just to install pins or rivets for nose bridge? did you just reuse those old rivets from this pics? or installed on pics are new pins?
