    Ideas Please

    Hey Modders..

    I would like to remove the white letering of this TX Ironman to make it really Tactical. I do not have a dremmel tool or the likes.

    Is there an alternative method to do this ?

    Remove the bezel if possible, and soak in Goo Gone or Goof Off. Brush with a toothbrush to work out the loosened paint. Wash with mlid soap and water, evaluate, and repeat until you are happy.

    Just did this with a G-Shock.

    I actually thought of this as I like Sharpies...

    Just thought it would not be a cool method.

    1. You want tactical
    2. You think Sharpie isn't cool

    Time to rethink those life choices....

    Because the paint on a Casio is so much different

    It would be a lot of detailed work but what about black resin? Clear out the white, sand it down (remove the guts a display cover first), then fill in the relief letters with resin in one pass, let harden then to a second pass to level the whole face, and then sand to a finish. A resin is the only thing I can think of that would affix to the plastic of the watch...
    So many watches to gather, so little time.
