    Question Just got a "Stormtrooper" G-9000MC...

    Just picked up this G-Shock "Stormtrooper" G-9000MC from another member on the forum... Its got some latex paint on it, and I'd like to try and get some or all of it off, but I dont want to damage the watch itself. It looks like most of the small specs can be pulled off with a finger nail, but for the lager parts, does anyone on here have any ideas? Picture below, you can see the paint on the top of the watch over the "C"

    Nice pick up. You were a few minutes faster than me responding to the ad. You might try using a Mr. Clean magic eraser to get rid of the latex. Let me know if you decide to flip it down the road.

    Yeah, I think I replied to the post within a few minutes of it being posted. Had to jump on the combo -- I picked up three of them!
    I will give the magic eraser a try and see how that works, thanks

    Saw the ad but didn't want to fight the paint. Good luck!

    Used the magic eraser and it got rid of most of the paint. Then I used a carefully placed blade to remove anything left... heres the after:

    I had that watch. It's awesome.
    It's not the 'Stormtrooper' by the way. It's the gray camo.

    Glad to see the Magic Eraser worked. Looks great! If you decide to sell it let me know.
