Default Can you darken goggles?

I was just wondering if theres anyway you can darken the goggles. I painted my gun and mask, and would loooove to darken the lense. Would light car window tint work?

ummmm just buy a new lense, don't think window tint would work too well considering it's plastic and if you take a hit to the lens in close proximity the tint may crack or start peeling. Depending on the type of mask replacement lenses can be pretty cheap.

put 2 layers of window tint on it, get a light tint though cuz 2 light tints = 1 dark tint (roughly) and then it will have less chance of cracking

The Wal-Mart masks are JT's, aren't they? You can get all kinds of lenses for those...

But I'd go with the Vforce line as well over the JT's you get at Wally World...

On topic, I personally wouldn't mess with the lense of a mask. Period. Your eyes are too important to risk. Period.

dont do anything to the mask
period.

dont
dont
dont.


DO... buy a new lens if you wish it to be a different color.


if you put chemicals on plastics, in many cases they will weaken and thats the last thing you want protecting your eyes. please refer to http://www.spyder.tv/forums/showthread.php?t=2292 for a good story on why you shouldnt mess around with goggles and why not to play without them

never tint a lens.......
on the outside or inside, the adhesive will harden the lens and make it brittle...
