    My $25 G! (UPDATE)

    Picked this up off the 'bay for under $25! Now my Frog has a little bro. This should be a fun one to mod. Any suggestions??

    Well, I got her cleaned up pretty good. Took everything off and gave it a good scrubbing. While I was at it, I decided to "mod" it just a tad. I thought the white G on the bezel was a little drab, so I painted it red to make it stand out a bit more. I also painted the letters on the buttons blue to match the bezel. I think it looks a little better than before, although I could clean the buttons up a tad better. What do you guys think?

    Brilliant! I like those - keep it as it is.

    I think I agree with y'all. I was thinking of giving it a negative display like my other Glide, but instead I think it will just get a really good bath. Should clean up nicely.

    My suggestion, like the others is dont. It a unique G. By the way lots of folks that mod a perfectly good G dont like the way it turns out and is on the sales forum soon after we see the mod photos.

    Agh! So I decided to just give it a thorough scrubbing with soap and water and a second time with anti-bacterial soap. But I tell you what, that bezel was a PITA to get off. Bad enough that I broke a button! So....question time. Any fixes for a broken button? I seriously doubt I'll be able to find one with a spare. I was thinking super glue, or maybe even gorilla glue. Hope that does the trick.

    I would email casiosalesandservice.com and see if they have the button. I think it will be hard to find parts. Let us know what happens.

    Very cool if you're a Lakers fan. I wouldn't mod it.
