    G shock adapter

    Hello guys! I have a white DW6900 G. It's a pretty cool watch and I liked it a lot. However now it has turned into yellowish colour. So I decided to completely change the looks of it, I bought a black bezels for it and got a pair of used Nato adapters from one of my friends.The problem is the Nato adapters have a few scratches on them and it really annoys me(I know it is not a big deal but .....) Is there anyway I can remove the scratches or paint them again? Can I just spray paint the adapters? Will they look weird with the watch after that?

    You need to 'treat' the surface in some way, Painting is not correct as it'll soon wear off and look dreadful. I had some plastic trim parts on my car that I treated some minor scratches by very gently rubbing down with 1000 grit sand paper. (Tr it on the back first to see how it goes). Or, you could live with it, the scratches are entirely in keeping with the G Shock ethos, especially as they represent a bit of history from your friends usage!

    Depends if you want to spend any money. If it were me and I'd bought a new bezel, I'd be buying new adapters too, I would hate the two to look so different because one part was new and the other used.

    Just replace them. If you are in the US, just buy a pair. It's only $2.++ a piece at Pacparts. However, if you can not source a pair of new one in your place, try Meguiar PlastX. They worked well in polishing my headlight.

    Yeah I agree; just go for new ones if you can. I think the adapters by themselves are around $12 from Jay's and Kay's on eBay. I've still not seen a 100% effective method for removing the scratches.

    I will definitely try the sandpaper method. Ya if it don't work then I will just look for a new pair of adapters but it's not easy to buy something like this at the place I live. Thanks for the help guys.

    Use a fine grade sandpaper not a coarse grade. If done right (meaning take your time) it should come out looking matte. Do not expect it to be perfect when done though.
