Hello friends!...I've been quite busy lately, but I wanted to drop in and show you guys a build I threw together this evening. This blue display Frogman idea has been a long time in the making, but I just haven't had time to put it all together, that is until tonight when I just started tinkering and it snowballed into a completed build. I'll try to post some more pics in the coming days when I get a chance.
To make the blue display, I scavenged the polarizer from a blue G8900 (a heavily used one I scored on the Bay). To remove the blue polarizer from the 8900 without damaging it, I disassembled it and soaked the LCD in 99% alcohol to loosen the adhesive, then it peeled off fairly easily. This left the polarizer with no adhesive, so to attach it to the Frogman LCD I just cut it to fit, which holds it in place well enough when the watch is assembled.
The case is from a GWF-1000G, for the blue lettering. I already had this case from a previous build, but I never thought the blue lettering matched particularly well with the gold, so I swapped the parts from my gold frog into another case and used this one for this build.
The blue eye is also from the blue 8900. I just press fit it in and it is secure. I'm considering painting the GWF-1000 eye with some transparent blue paint and re-inserting that, but I'll have to see how it turns out.
The jelly resin is aftermarket, RIT dyed blue myself. The blue bezel studs are from the GWFD1000, ordered from pacparts.
That's pretty much it. I still have some final touches to do like paint the arrows on the buttons blue, plus I'm sure there will need to be some adjustments here or there. Overall, I am quite pleased how it turned out however.
