    I have a few pairs of early eighties Eyeshade. Two with original foam on the frame and one pair with the foam removed.

    I'm tempted to clean off the old foam from the other two pairs but i'm not sure if they are more desireable with foam..

    So,

    Should it stay or should it go......?

    Regards folks :)

    Your call. If you had a replacement foam I would say yes but really its all about how comfortable they are on you.

    If the foam is in good shape and you're worried about the collector value I'd say leave it. If it's pretty well torn up get the goop off.

    I reckon I'll leave it for now.. Its starting to peel off and a bit dirty. Not surprising after 30 years of use :)
