I read a lot about re-painting the G-Shock logo and dying other parts of the watch. And finally did they try on my real and first one. :) Actually I was too much of a chicken to finalise it, without asking you guys before I ruin my best piece.
Here is what I did: I went to the drugstore around the corner and bought yellow enamel lacquer (nail lacquer), nail lacquer remover without acetone and a clear lacquer to cover the whole piece of art. :) I bought Acetone-free remover because I thought it would be better for the parts around the button...was that right?
(and it is amazing what kind of looks you get from people in a german drugstore, when you are male and buying nail lacquer in yellow, lacquer remover and a nail clear lacquer...haha.)
-> back to work. :)
After I disassembled my DW-004 the first time I got some more questions:
I saw a post where someone told me to remove the G-button, but to be careful with the spring inside the little tube.
backview with removed caseback and module.
First of all: is it necessary to remove the button in order to re-paint the G?
Second: if I have to remove the button, how can I remove that little secure lock that is placed on that even smaller tube?
2.) Just a few nice shots of the disassembling-process. :)
Thanks for helping me!
