Restoring Flex IZE

I recently got ahold of a JT Pro Flex IZE. It's definitely showing it's age, bought it as a resoration project.

The color is faded on the hard ears, visor and frames, the rubber bottom flimsy and buckled inward.

I think I've figured out a solution for restoring the shape of the bottoms, but I'm somewhat stuck as far as restoring the color.

I've heard of Sea Glow, but I really not willing to shell out $75 for a bottle of it.

Any ideas or suggestions on how to restore this mask to it's former glory?

Re-dye them? Buddy of mine would dye his clear ize parts different colors and they came out great. Well, he only did it twice, with orange and then purple.

Did you buy those from Bacci Paintball? I wanted those!!

The bottoms are easy to fix, drop them in hot water for a few minutes then let them sit upside down.

The purple ones that had the remnants of green paint on them?

Yep! It's actually in really good condition now that the paint is removed.

The lense actually had some spray-on glitter stuff all over it, it wasn't actually a mirrored lense.

Thanks for the tip on the bottoms, I have them baking in the Arizona sun with support underneath to reform the bottoms, I'll try the water trick next if that doesnt do it.
