Pimp Yo Shades
These sunglasses from Oakley seem to call my name. They look as if they were designed by some apocalyptic desert hero. Maybe that’s a stretch, but you have to agree that they’re pretty dope. Here’s my issue, and it’s not Oakley’s fault; a pair of Oakley’s are not in the budget for me right now. So here comes another Big 5 special and a Home Depot trip to the rescue…
Prep Your Shades – Clean the lenses and frames with rubbing alcohol and tape the lenses with painter’s tape (I used Frog Tape). I purchased a pair of digital camouflage sunglasses from Big 5. You can pop the lenses out if you’re brave, but I didn’t want to risk them accidentally falling out on their own later.
Camo colors – Rust-Oleum has a line of very flat camo colors that are awesome. I chose “Fossil.”
Seal Them? – After you’ve applied a couple light coats and you’re satisfied with the look, you can seal it with flat/satin clear coat. I didn’t seal mine just yet and I’m not sure I will. But if you want to protect them from scratching, it’ll help.
I love the way mine turned out. And what’s more? I have plenty of paint left over to camo my shotgun in the near future. Let me know if you tried this! Or let me know if there’s something else I should try.
Be safe. Use wisdom. God bless.
