    Just bought my first pair of Oakley's in quite some time. My first pair of decent sunglasses was a pair of Frogskins in the mid 90s (highschool) so in a nostalgic move I got almost the same pair I had then, and they still fit and look great!

    One thing I want to change though is I want to black out the white "OAKLEY" on the frame. I just think it will blend better and look better on this combo I got. What is the best approach to doing this? Should I use a Sharpie Paint pen? Regular sharpie? Model paint? I am not very artistically gifted but I am somewhat handy so since the OAKLEY is raised off the frame enough I am thinking I won't screw it up.

    Suggestions welcomed!

    Yea I've messed with a sharpie here and there. For something like that I'd use paint. Doesn't really matter what kind, not a real high wear area.

    Sharpie will rub off with your fingers.

    What color is the frame? You could just buff the paint off of the letters.
