I'm looking forward to it, and I like it because it's simple so that you can modify it yourself with LEDs, wires, additional straps and so on.

These are truly beautiful. Are they as light as they look? The crushing weight is my only problem with my new goggles. I shall watch this with interest.

I'm using this wording to avoid saying that I'm interested like the others do, although I can't wait to see the directions. I really need goggles. Sad

Those goggles are, er, spectacular.   Grin

Looking forward to the instructions.  I have a pair of copper eyecups shaped and ready to go, but I'm a little stalled on how to do the lens mounts and leather padding strips.

They are Stanley hinges, available at any Lowe's in the Hardware section. GH has done a wonderful job of distressing them.

Those are lovely.  I may have to purloin some of those ideas for my own pair.

Good sir, I find your goggles to be quite fascinating and await instructions on how to go about constructing such a thing.
