Default Detailed: Ray-Ban New Wayfarers

Warning: do not enter if you have no sense of humor.

My New Wayfarers were looking a bit beat after a year of use. I decided it was time to spruce them up a bit. And I was dying to see what this new camera can do, so it seemed like a great opportunity.

First, I used a tooth brush in the hinges, around the lenses, and around the little chrome things to loosen up dirt. Then I used the products pictured here:



After going over the sunglasses twice, I applied some Meguiar's Yellow Wax to all surfaces, buffed off, and went around everything with the tooth brush again. Hopefully my skin doesn't react to it.

Final results:







There was so much dirt in the little "RB" engraved into the lens.



Clean hinge



These are probably some of the most used and abused sun glasses in the world, so excuse the fact that half of the finish is gone

I do similar things with my Tag Heuer. So you are not the only one. Looks good...
