    messed that right up

    tried to stealth my old DW8700 & completely messed it up
    boiled it in some washing powder then rubbed at the lettering with an old toothbrush
    the lettering came off but now the bezel looks like it's had sunburn & is peeling. oh well. you live & learn
    i wish hkexporter would hurry up with my mudman

    Don't feel too bad. My 6900 looks like I scrubbed it with sand paper in places. Just takes some practice.
    Wear what you like.

    Hi King Edward,

    I think boiling was a bit too much. When I found out about the working of washing powder and warm water, the water was about 60ºC. Peeling off... Sounds disturbing. Maybe a different kind of polymer is used for the DW-8700.
    Poor DW-8700, I think this model is pretty nice the way it was released...

    Cheers,

    Sjors
