    GWF-1000 Frogman with Maratac Elite Band

    Haven't seen anyone do this yet. Here it is. Looks better than I thought it would. It's very simple, you just have to notch the band to 18mm BUT you also have to cut the notch a bit deeper than stock in order to reach the screws.





    The band cuts very cleanly if you use a sharp x-acto knife or razor blade, so the mod looks good even from the backside.

    It was a 24mm strap notched to 22mm. Note that you have to increase the notch in both dimensions. the factory notch is not deep enough for the strap holes to reach the lug holes.
