    Anyone here dye a regular g-shock black to cover scuffs/marks?

    And if so, what was the result? I thought maybe the dye job would make a worn-out g-shock look sort of new again, as long as the watch doesn't have any major gouges. Although, i guess you wouldn't get that brand new matte finish that you see on most g-shocks due to the powdery substance they use in manufacturing.

    I've dyed a tired and worn green jelly to dark blue with what i thought were pretty good results.

    Looks a shed load better though close inspection reveals the wear to the resin.

    Looks great Rusty!!

    Did you also dye the strap at the same time in the same bath? Surprising it did not affect the white label on the strap very much.

    Nice!
