    Yep stuck on like most of the Icons. Easily removed with a little care.

    The batwolf are a different type of fit. Apparently the are the same size as a Hijinx & antix & can be fitted to theses glasses with some modification. Don't believe they will fit a Fuel Cell though.

    That's what I did with my Radars.

    I boiled some water in a kettle and poured it into a bowl. The with lenses removed I dipped the glasses in the water for 10-15 seconds and the icon easily popped out with a little coaxing.

    After I had the icons out I used compressed air to blow any water out of the frame and hinge.

    easiest way is to use a pyrex glass measuring cup, boil the water in it in a microwave for like 2.5 minutes, drop one side in for 20-30 seconds and pop off (adhesive will remain intact) and repeat...Trust me, it works like a champ

    I would like to know this as well I am making it easy and want blue icons for my batwolf so will be buying white or black and painting those. Is it easier to paint on matte than polished?
