No, what you see is what you get. You may be able to straighten them up and reshape them but not lengthen them.

Looking at doing it to a pair of Persol 649s - the 52mm is by far the best size for the lens parts IMO - but the temples are only 135mm at that size.. Unfortunately no option to mix and match.

Careful now. A 135mm temple isn't necessarily short. Depending on where the actual temple starts, 135mm may be enough. It's like a medium Tshirt in different brands will fit differently. I would tell you to go to a B&M and see what they can do for you.

Sorry, this is what I meant by "lengthening".

Yep I have tried them on in B & M and definitely a bit too short. I'll ask around.
