    G-Shock AWGM100B-1A - after market straps

    so I'm very tempted to buy a AWGM100B-1A but i'm not so keen on the standard strap (16mm lug width):

    I'm not a fan of the strap adapters you can get for g-shocks as i think they add a bit too much plastic to the watch to allow a nylon strap but I think the nylon strap style on the AW-591MS looks great:

    So a couple of questions for my fellow WUS g-shock owners:

    1) Can you get similar fitting straps to the AW-591MS strap in other colours (not so keen on the orange underside)?
    2) Do you think i could purchase a AW-591MS strap and 'trim' the spring bar holders down a smidge from 18mm to fit a 16mm gap? And does anyone know if the distance between the 2 spring bar holders are the same for both watches for this strap to fit?
    3) Are there any other options to using g-shock strap adapters to get a nylon strap installed?

    thanks in advance everyone!

    1:) all 16mm leather straps for Gs will fit. check out the G-300L strap!
    2.) No need to trim, the AW-591 has the exact same housing. everything that fits there also fits to the AWG-m100. Also compatible:
    G-7700/7710, G-300
    3.)there is a G-7710CL version with strap adapters for 24mm. those are hard top find, though. I dont know if shapeway or other aftermarket adapters will fit since they are usually made for 5600/6900 line lugs which have the same with (16mm) but different depth.

    You see no pictures in my post?
    Photobucket decided to lock my pics behind a 40$/month prescription service.
    I used their services since 2009 so the most of my old threads have Photobucket pics inside.
    If you stumble across one of those threads and want to see the pic, PM me and i will re-attach it.
    What can we learn from all the lost information?

    thanks d2mac.

    I also found this great website about that strap being able to fit the AWGM100 and also has a couple of other options:

    Does anyone know if you can get an all black version of this strap opposed to the orange inside? I've found a blue version but not an all black.

    cheers
