I recently found this pair of Ray Bans while packing my grandfather's home after he passed away. On top it reads B&L RAY-BAN U.S.A. On the underside it reads B&L 6214 U.S.A. They do not appear to have the laser etching on the side of the lens. It appears they are an Aviator Outdoorsman model. I was never a big fan of Aviators (felt they didn't look good on my face) but being they are my grandfather's sunglasses I'd like to wear them anyways. The problem is, I really dislike the long cable temples and doubt I would wear them much in their current state. I was thinking of (and I'm guessing I'l take flak for this) using wire cutters to cut the cable temple shorter and then getting new earpieces to put on them. Is this possible? If so, where can I order new ear pieces and where do I order them and what ones should I order. I'd also like to replace the rubber nose pieces with clear instead of the cloudy plastic on them now. Where could I replace these as well and what do I order?
I know cutting them would hurt the value, but I really don't care about the monetary value. They have more sentimental value to me and I'd actually like to use them. Thanks for your time.
