    I'll have to pick up a bottle. How long are we talking to remove the excess, 10 minutes or so?
    Just popping a blue screen in yours probably would reduce legibility a lot. I've seen examples of changing from positive to negative but I'm not ready to try that operation yet.

    oh no no, like 30 seconds or so. Pretty much you want the paint wet enough to take off but dry enough to stick in the groves. That is why I do a few coats over a day or so
    I already messed up a screen trying to go from negative to positive lol. I was thinking the same thing with legibility.

    Sounds so easy! Wonder if it'll work as well on nail polish? If not, sounds like testors paint and alcohol is a good combo.

    I'm not sure about nail polish, I've never used it. I think a small bottle costs me like $1.50 at Michaels with a coupon (they always have them)
    I go overboard with paint lol

    My GW M5625E "Glorious Gold" resin was discolored, pretty gross. I attempted my first Rit dye experiment, royal blue. It didn't really come out very blue but it's noticeable. While doing that I also added a Rosco yellow filter to enhance the original yellow/gold display. Since the buttons, buckle, screws, and caseback are gold I thought it'd be fun to try gold bullbars, which I've never used before. The overall result is pretty good. At least I can wear it now instead of waiting around hoping for an original non-discolored bezel and strap.

    Nice job on that, reversing the polarity and everything eh? I have to try those adapters sometime.

    This is a 5600GM with a mix of two 5600FL bezels and straps, also a carbon keeper. I love the silver and blue color combo. The silver bezel has seen better days as the silver has worn off in spots, and my blue nail polish paint job on the lettering is sub par. Chances are I'll try to source a new silver bezel, or get some testors paint and try to touch up the silver and blue lettering.
