    Ouch. That sucks.

    It looks like you might as well go all the way and strip the coating off though. That plain resin underneath might be easy to dye. Maybe?

    Thanks for taking one for the team. I'm sure you'll help save some other G-Shocks from a similar fate.

    Sometimes that bleeds through though. Most people want stealth... with NO paint...

    The goof off works well on the non shiny resin.. no complaints on any of my stealthed models.
    Suunto... Replacing Luck!

    yah i was thinking about painting it matte black anyway... i might just paint over it and wipe off the excess paint like all of the DIYs suggested.

    Of course you realise you'll have to post pics of the result.


    Actually, it's a great base color to dye with.

    Confused Re: PSA WARNING!!! *PICS* Important info about stealthing with regular goof off v. goof of

    im wondering if the red shiny GLX is red underneath or white?

    All the 'patent' finishes I've seen have a similar base colour as top colour.

    Must break off here - a parcel has arrived...
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...

    Yes...I have noticed that. It makes sense to do it that way.

    I almost purchased one of these "shiny" watches but when I looked at the strap underneath, it was dull and I immediately though of the paint coming off like the Brazilian and other similar models.
