    I use alsacorp kit ! The very best quality. I never tried to do sunglasses but I do car parts. Works very well and is easy to use

    I wonder how many uses you get out of that one kit? NWH charges $35 per frame which isn't bad considering you can get almost 3 pairs done for the cost of that one kit and without the mess and prepping.

    I was wondering the same thing pretty much. Many of the offered kits on Ebay are around 88.00 and come with I believe 1 meter of film. With careful measurement I'd say you could get 5 to 10 pairs done. Cardboard and a cheap plastic tub/bucket is all else you would need.

    Honestly for the $35 a pair, you are saving prep work and clear coating time. Which the eBay kit doesn't include.

    Not saying the kit is a bad idea, but you save yourself a lot of work and trouble going through the other companies.

    This would be a summer/weekend project for sure. Maybe plan a huge Oakley forum camping trip we could set one tent aside for prep the first day,(party:party: in between) and water transfers the next day.:smoke:

    My finding is as long as I have film I can still do things. Meaning that the activator and other things they give you in the kit are always sufficient.

    I have mostly done rims, hubcaps, a hood and some motorcycle fenders. I do not have pictures at the moment I am working in the great north for a while... it is a very easy and cheap process. I'd say almost as easy as powdercoat. And it is surprisingly tough ! Good luck guys

    This seems like something that should be left to the professionals.
