This is how magnets are attached on a piece of Lycra. The three little magnet backing with three more inside the frames.
Wow they're perfect!!
For those of you who want to install the lenses yourselves. You may try to use 5mm double sided tape to keep them in place, and then use crazy glue around the lens. the plastic part should be a little smaller than the frame, so there is some room for the crazy glue. and the photo is the visibility of the lens.
Cool work so far!

Awesome work so far!
Would you mind explaining in fair detail how you made the original lens frame?
i take old shoes and i cut as the model....with adhesive tape i do the model to back and to front ....and with the paint spray i aplic the paint that not finish i will glu the hole....( if you don't understand i can repeat,sorry I'm french)
the lenses look amazing and im amazaed at how you got them to become magnetic to the lycra
What I gathered from it, the best way to do it is to lay down single lines at a time. Kind of like squeezing out toothpaste. That makes the corners sharpe and the lines thick.
Lenses look amazing great material!
Joelai009 do you have any updated shots of your suit sewn up? the mask or other parts?
