    Looking to modify the rivets on my GW7900B-1

    Hi, so I recently purchased the GW7900B-1 watch and saw on this forum people performing the stealth mod of exchanging the rivets with black ones. I was able to purchase the rivets but I totally lost the instructions on how to change them out. Does anyone have a DIY on how to go about carrying out this mod? This is my first Casio watch and don't have a lot of experience modding watches so I'm hoping I can get some detailed instructions so I don't mess this watch up. Thanks in advance!

    Basically, the rivets just pop out from the back of the bezel.

    1. Remove the four small screws on the side of the watch

    2. Pry off the bezel starting with one side (some people use a small flat-head screwdriver for this, I prefer to just use my hands/fingernails).

    3. Once you have the bezel removed you will have access to the rivets. You can push them out from behind using a small philips screwdriver or something similar as a punch.

    4. Push the new rivets into the holes from the front of the bezel, by hand.

    5. Then it's just a matter of replacing the bezel (start by putting it over the buttons on one side, and then stretch it over the buttons on the other side until it snaps into place), and putting the screws back in.


    Hope this helps some. Welcome to the forum, and don't worry, I'm sure you can do this with no problem.
