    First Mod - any feedback?

    I recently invested probably about $100 into a DW5600E-1V to mod with.
    Since this was my first mod, I need to get some supplies as well.

    I followed these guides, although the result was not as good as I expected it to be:
    Bezel stealthing: https://forums.watchuseek.com/f17/bri...de-126722.html
    Negative display mod: https://forums.watchuseek.com/f43/how...ay-129102.html

    It took me around 2 hours to stealth mod the bezel, as I had an unexpected outcome, and I messed up my bezel.
    Cutting out the polarizing film for the display probably took about 2 1/2 hours.
    After that, I ordered my Eric Haze strap from casiosalesandservice.com
    The strap probably took about 1 hour to put on, as I messed up repeatedly.

    This will be replacing my Hundreds 5610 that I never decided to wear.

    The end result:

    Nice - I like it! The Eric Haze strap looks pretty cool together with the black bezel. Great first mod!

    AnalogAndDigital,
    The backlight looks amazing when it is digits only -no more blinding night glare :)

    Yours came up really well.

    regards,
    George

    Thanks, there was a bit of a smudge on the film when I was applying it though, so there's a little dot that appears whenever the backlight is illuminated.
    If you look closely, it's on the top right corner of the display.

    Thanks. The letters on the bezel are a bit scratched up though, from a failed attempt to stealth it. The strap took me forever to put back on, but the end result was worth it!
