Cool. I like it. Looks good. This is a great trick.
Going to try and get the second piece a little lighter and compare. This one maybe darker than I like. Looks a little too tan.

Alright, the one on the right I watched for 5 minute increments for a while. Looks good. Less tan.

Originally these goggles came with the Green/Yellow lens that the "Trench Troopers" have. Inside personnel use amber. I had to cut a new lens out of a large Trading card top loader and add an auto light tint film. I could not think of anything better for the plastic lens that was rigid enough yet pliable enough. After a couple tries I found the perfect amber filmcolor. Not to dark or fluorescent. Cutting and installing was a chore. I have enough film left for another try. Took me a few tries to get it without too many bubbles or cracks around the edges. This one has some spots from bubbles and I will cut a new one later. I ran out of plastic. Good enough for now though.

Another solution. I had to find a piece to cover up the open end and hold the prongs. I needed a corner piece of plastic. I found these old cassette cases I was using to hold dremel parts. I will have to find something else for storage. This is perfect because I will need to cut them out with a knife and it is nice and soft yet sturdy. Now to make another one.

Perfect. Now to sand the edges to size, paint, and reinforce or build up the bottom side of the loop parts around the prong pieces. Then install them.

Iron on with custom cut patch blank. The iron on process was a little rough but I salvaged it and sealed it with Mod Podge. Looks OK . Looks like It should be more of a regular fabric type patch with sewn edges but this is all I could come up with.

Looks grey but it's really a tan color
