    I've got a pair of original XX Plasma / Ice that need some love. I cleaned them up today, and the frames really don't look bad at all.

    Before cleaning them up I thought they needed a complete restoration, but now I dont know. I know they need everything else, but what do you guys think about the frames? I hope these pics do a good job of showing their condition. For some reason these proved difficult to photograph.

    Personally considering these are rare (from what I've read) I would prefer not to refinish them if you think they don't need it. I like my metals original given the choice.

    As the saying goes "If it is not broken, do not fix it."

    Unless your item has scratches, and color fading that is bothering you, then refinish it.

    I think they look OK, but I was kind of wanting to see what everyone else thought ;)

    If these hit my bench, I would contact you and recommend not to refinish them.i think slightly worn is cool.kinda like an old leather jacket.
