    I need to replace my lenses in the frames. What's the best way to go about doing this? I'd like to use Oakley lenses if at all possible.

    Thanks!

    Plenty for sale in the xmetal exchange. Custom cuts can be done by members. @Chris A Hardaway @xmetalmaniac are two off the top of my head.

    Welcom to the forum.

    Still some original Oakley lenses on ebay for the Juliet: Items in GreatDealz365 Sunglasses N Stuff store on eBay!

    For Penny lenses custom cuts are probably the way to go. The custom cutters recommended above are great and can get you most types of Oakley lenses for both frames.

    Thanks! Once I buy the lenses how hard are they to put in? Do I need to send them to someone to install?

    You need a good quality Torx 6 screwdriver (Wiha and Wera are best) and just unscrew the orbital screws. The rest is easy. Just remember to not use too much force when unscrewing and tightening.

    Also when changing out the lenses, do it over a flat light colored surface. There are very tiny gaskets that you don't want to lose. Plenty of vids on YouTube if you need them.

    I really like the silver mirror lens on my penny X Metals. They make the frames look really good.
