    I decided to re-do a pair of my monster dogs since I wasn't happy with the original effort. It was the first pair I did and hadn't gotten the hang of it yet.

    I can tell you that once you dip a pair the stuff is really on there. I tried scraping it off and it wasn't coming off easily. I decided to boil the glasses in a pot of hot water. It worked.

    After letting them boil for a while you can see everything starting to bubble up. I'd then take a piece out while the others were still boiling and scrubbed the piece with a steel scouring pad.

    Here are some pics. It's now ready to prime, paint, and dip.

    wow!! That is awesome. I know blasting them is a tedious process. That seems to be the trick. Awesome.

    Well cerakote has to be baked on. So boiling should not be a problem.

    Yeah these glasses are well made so no need to worry about high heat. Just don't use a torch on them! ;-)

    Cerakote comes in both a heat cure and an air cure.

    Cerakote only requires 200 F for their bake cure, boiling water we all know is 212 F, but Nylon (the main component in O Matter frames) melts somewhere above 375 F.

    My main concern would be the 2-hour bake for Cerakote giving the frames a new set from allowing them to droop or whatever. Not sure if Dr Chop and CCL use air or heat versions.

    I know ccl uses both versions. And i know there was a adjustment from cerakote on the bake time and temp for oakleys. Not sure of the details though.
