    Looking for Bull Bars

    Does anyone know where I could find red or purple colored bull bars for square G-Shocks? I find it surprising that I can't find any.

    Not aware of any square since 1983 that had red or purple bars. I've seen black, silver, gold, and a dull, gunmetal color. Maybe you saw a picture of one that someone painted themselves or something.

    I wouldn't even mind painting bull bars if someone knew the right paint and method to use.

    BigBad, painting bullbars will be problematic. They will 'knick' and especially the horizontal part in contact with your wrist will always lose its paint. Will have an untidy look IMO, and you would have to always be re-touching it. Won't look good in short order. Unless treating with acids such as when you 'blue' metal, painting won't hold up.

    Agree, initially paint will look great until one tries to install them without nicking and chipping the paint, not to mention wear and tear once installed and worn.

    Could you get them powder coated? Probably a bit costly

    what about plasti-dip? I think you can buy that in a can, plenty of people use it one car wheels. Whilst it doesn't last forever, it's a bit more flexible than normal paint and can resist chipping a bit more

    surprising why? Gs were never released with those in that colour, unless youre thinking of baby gs?



    plenty of aftermarket (and originals with a bit of looking) ones available for the square. a little bit of spray enamel would do the trick paint-wise

    While Jays & Kays is out there producing OEM quality bullbars in colors not offered by CASIO, they are only supporting black, silver, polished silver, and gray (gunmetal).

    There is another vendor out there on eBay who has a handle something like "JayJizzle" or something. They are featuring colored bullbars, but I'm not sure if they're for the 5600.
