    So I am an idiot. Over the weekend I was out of my element and ended up putting my Juliets on the top of my car. Well I forgot about them, and the next time I went driving.. well you can guess what happened next. I was going about 45mph when they flew off my car and hit the pavement. I actually didn't even know what they were, but thankfully I went back to look and found them next to the curb. The picture below is what I found.....

    Sad Story and Finish Help Needed - Sad.jpg

    So here is my question and why I need help. They are 2nd gen plasma, so from what I understand that it is a coating on the frames. The orbitals are scratched, but don't look terrible, the real eyesore is the nose bridge.

    So my question is, what do I do next? I have a dremel, but I am sure if I tried to polish out the scratches, they would look terrible. Perhaps I could get a new nose bridge, but I have not idea how I would do that. So, I reach out to the community, what is the best way to make these look as good as they can again?

    :( That is sad, but at least you got it back before someone else ran it over - it could have been worse.

    With those scratches by the time you buff them out the finish would be off. If you can live with the orbitals as-is I'd go Ti02.

    I know I'm usually in the small minority, but I say wear it like a badge of honor. Honest wear marks and the like show more character and bring definition and uniqueness. Same as customizing, but its earned.

    Sucks that that happened, but at least they are still alive and can be refinished to look new again. A less durable frame would probably not have survived.

    I know exactly how you feel. I'd go with x-man but from my point of view it only adds character.

    Doesn't look terrible. We've seen way worse done to X metals. It doesn't doesn't mean you should put them on top of your car like a baby! ...I would still wear them as is just saying
