Hey everyone! I've been lurking in the forum for a while, gathering information from all of you guys. After careful consideration, I decided to purchase a G2300B-1V as my first G-Shock. I like everything about the watch; the way it looks, the feature set, the size, etc. The only thing that I wasn't crazy about was the red lettering and man, this watch has a lot of it! After picking up some stealthing tips by going through a lot of the threads here, I decided to give it a shot.
After removing the bezel and soaking it for a few minutes in Goof-Off, the red lettering brushed right off. After that I removed the plastic ring containing the word 'G-Shock'. I tested a little of the Goof-Off on the back of the ring and, sure enough, it started to dull (attack) the plastic. I then proceeded to try Goof-Off 2 (safe for plastic) but it wouldn't touch the red paint. Not wanting to try anything else that might melt the plastic ring, I decided to paint the letters with some black enamel that I had on hand. I did the same thing to the red 'G' on the EL button. After the paint dried, I carefully scraped off the excess using the side of a wooden toothpick, leaving the paint in the inset letters. It came out pretty good. Before I put it all back together, I changed the strap to the resin one that comes on the G2300-9V (got it from Casio Sales & Service). I just didn't care for the nylon one.
Here's a picture of the finished stealthing job. Let me know what you think!
