Some of you probably read the previous thread, but as an overview: Bought a pair of X-metal XX on ebay, they were scratched up and loose when I got them. The loosest pair of X-metals I have ever seen. With the ear stems fully extended, they could touch. If you tried to put them on, you would think they would fall apart. Mark2112 offered to fix them for me. Wow. It's hard to believe they are the same pair. Tight as new. Better than an Oakley tune-up. I will definitely be going to him for any future tightening. He also refinished the frame for me. Slightly darker than normal X-metal finish, and not as smooth. I like it, and now have something unique for my case. If you are looking for a completely factory look, this finish isn't it. But it would cover up scratches anyway. If you need a nose-bridge tightened, I highly recommend mark2112. If you want a custom finish, or cover up scratches on a frame, I recommend him as well. He posted some pictures last week, I'm on vacation right now so I can't post any till next week.
