    DW6900E-1 + DW6900MF-2 .....results Pic heavy

    Hi all

    I love the DW6900E-1ER which I believe was a DW6900 for the Euro market
    hence the ER in the name.
    Think it was nicknamed the Rough Rowdy by some came in Black "1" or Blue "2" resin

    But what I really liked about this model was the blueish tint to the display

    I took my first ER & put it in some SN3 resin awhile back here it is & I am leaving it this way
    as I like this one a lot

    Ever since I have kept my eyes peeled for another ER
    I finally found a used mint one last week in Japan for a good price.

    The reason I wanted it was the blue screen & also (IMHO) the great resin set it has

    I had an idea to mix it with a MF-2 because I think the various blues with the grays would look good.

    It turned out nicer than my photo-chops led me to believe which I was happy with.

    Anyway here is the results
    First a stock shot of the ER...it really was just like new & I would not have known it was used
    if Ginzo didn't tell me. ( BTW great rakuten seller to work with)

    About the MF-2 I really love it & have it in some MM-2 resin looks good too
    but the mirror display could be better as all mirrors are not the best IMHO for clarity
    So I thought to exchange it for the blue tinted ER display

    The gray's of the glass stripe, the light button G & the lettering on bezel set it off nicely I think

    Will of course give it a go in Blue MM resin too
    but for now will enjoy it in black

    Thanks widgydidge

    I dont think I ever used that MF-2 in stock form. I did not like the shiny metallic resin
    so had it in MM2 resin right away.

    But as you see by this pic the display while ok straight on is like most mirrors not always
    visible. But I like the faceplate on the MF2 mixed with the gray stripe glass etc it has so wanted to
    improve it for me if possible

    Here my stock pic shows that visibility slight prob

    Then in my blue MM resin same deal & never easy to photo which means never easy to see either

    ...great stuff, Mike - my head is spinning from all these spectacular mods. By sheer coincidence I posted a pic in todays WRUW of a 6900-1V with the "shock resist" 6900E-1 strap. But my love of "BLOO" (sorry SJORS) has me attracted like bees to a honeypot, to these mods.

    Thanks Kev

    You know I love that resin set off that ER & told you before it is a great deal price wise too

    I am with you on the "Bloo" I love them & if I remember right you like this cobalt dark bloo too

    I am happy to now have two of these ER's albeit not in total stock form but I do love this screen

    Thanks again
