Hi,
cause my ca. 15 years old Lense cracked finaly (the inside one) so i had to think about ... !?!?!?

Cause i got a free bad lense one from a friend i thought using her much stronger front lense to build a much more lifetime, stability etc. inside lense out of !!!

As seal i used is a line which you use to hang on wet clothes, i only removed the wire from inside for more flexibility but i go Change this cause sheīs red, as soon i found some black well Fitting hose, foam etc. for this Job !!!

Cause the D.I.Y. inside lense fits very well, so the ends(sides) of the inside lense will get pushed Forward by the Frame against the seal. ;)













I like Tippmann !!!

So iīve found the perfect seal material !!!

I used an old Mousepad(the foam of), cut it out by using the Thermallense2.0 as size(negative). Cause there was still some glue which has connected the surface of the pad on the foam it sticks well enough, so i donīt had to use some extra glue. Installation is als much easier cause there is no movement of the seal and the best i think itīs much better looking in black !!!

I also thought ... if you would have a permanent thermal lense you just Need to buy a single frontlense each year so the costs should be lower for the customer and mother nature too and the lifetime of the thermal lense would be many years iīm shure. No glue needed on outside lense is also healthy for plastic i think, 2.0 lense seals just by pressure and on the inner thermal lense glue could be aggresive and it still would be save.
Shure Change a JT lense isnīt that easy(comfortable) like on other masks but i would say if you Change it more than ones a year you do stress yourself. Use shower with cold water it will reach each Little gap of your mask, after use dry kitchen paper to suck up the water and dirt which is in the face foam and let her dry not in sunlight, done !









I like Tippmann !!!
