    So this is how I found this Juliet. It was setting on the bottom of a river about half buried in mud. It was almost gone forever.
    I would guess also if most people in the general public, would have found them they would have just thought they were a broken pair of sunglasses, and left them on the bottom of that river.
    When I found them they must have been down there for years. They were missing a arm, the finish was all scratched up and looked very worn. All the nose bridge rubber was gone, and when I removed the ear stem rubber it just crumbled.

    This Awesome forum ( my O-brothers) stepped up and brought this thing back to life. @#1 Stunna! started the whole thing by donating some new OEM rubber, @X-Metal Beast sent me a arm. It was damaged and I didn't use it but the contribution was still there. Thank you. @LinusOBerlin sent me some lenses which look amazing in this frame. @xmetalmaniac offered to cut me some lenses as well. I thanked him for the Awesome offer but Linus had already sent me some.
    @thisguy sent me this cool bag with a diver on it. Very appropriate bag for them.
    Finally @jdd32 OMG I can't believe what he did to this frame! He replaced the arm, tuned it and refinished the frame. He charged me almost nothing for this service. Postage and the arm only.
    I can't tell you how good this thing looks. It really looks and feels like a brand new pair. If I could go back in time to a O-store I would not be able to tell them apart from a brand new pair.
    I would highly recommend him for any X-metal restoration! They are a brand new pair.

    @jdd32 even put a custom serial number on the left arm! How Awesome is that.

    So here I want to compare the X-metal finish to a brand new Mars I just bought. The finish is exactly the same. I cannot tell the difference. They really do look like a brand new pair. It's just Amazing
