    " Another 6900MS Modd....Check it out! "

    So, I finally decided tonight to paint the letters on my 6900MS, I had already swapped out the negative display over to a regular display and had really been liking it, but, something was still missing, came out perfect first try! I usually fear the worst but here she is! What do you guys think about the yellow? I love it!!

    BTW, did you end up using acrylic to fill in the G on EL button?

    If not, great job wiping the paint overflow from the button surface It definitely presents a challenge when using enamel paint.

    I actually did use enamel, being an Auto Paint Tech by profession, had some very slow urethane basecoat reducer out in the garage and with a soft t shirt cloth, it wiped off nice and smooth almost immediately.

    Just a minute ... You bought the all-black version with the negative display ... and then switched the LCD to positive and painted the letters bright yellow?........ Hahaha

    Looks great though I must admit! Nice work

    Thanks, sounds crazy, I know, but, I already have another 6900MS Stealth, so this one was a perfect candidate for some modds! I love the wider band on the Stealth over the stock, it's much more comfy. You have got to admit that this is the absolute hardest negative display to read, well except for my 5600MS, its just as bad! I still love em both though!!
