I just got my first g-shock, a new mudman rally. I really like this watch but I'm not crazy about the red bits, both the metal parts under the shroud and the red g-shock text on the shroud itself.
I pulled the shroud off and it appears the red bits are just anodized aluminum. I'm guessing I could sand the red off pretty easily with a scotch brite pad.
So, this leaves me with two questions.
1) is there an easy way to darken the metal after removing the red anodize? perhaps some chemical I could brush on in small quantities to prevent damage to the rest of the watch.
2) what are the best methods for blacking out the red G-SHOCK and white SHOCK RESIST text on the shroud?
