    Another dye question …

    If I decide to dye the (what-u-mah-call-it) red circle (thing-ah-ma-jig) surrounding the temp sensor to black on my GW-A1000-1AJF. What would be the most painless way to do it?





    Thanks
    Have a great day, or night! ...

    Re: Another dye question …

    It all depends on what it's made of.

    If it's resin like the bezel then just use the boiling RIT dye method outlined in Hoochy's guide here: https://forums.watchuseek.com/f43/how...ing-86046.html

    If it's a type of ABS plastic though, then I'm not sure. I guess the only way would be to paint it but it would probably need redoing after a while as it might not be that durable.

    Or, you could buy a RAF. It's already done for you then ;)

    Hope this helps a bit

    Cheers

    Thanks for the quick response Marc! Wish I could've stepped up to the RAF! It looks like it's resin so I'll read through the link!

    Thanks again!
