    My Military Frogman Modds....

    I dyed my bezel and strap about 2 weeks ago, solid black, actually looks like a metallic black, was a little to purplish gray for me as it came, then today I finally painted in my letters on the bezel, love the yellow and black look, so I went with the flat yellow, just like I did my DW-6900MS a few weeks ago. I really like how it came out, was a little tedious because I wanted it to be perfect, a little worry some when messin with my Frogs! Its funny because no one believes me when I tell them I painted the letters on my bezel. What do you guys think?

    the 'metallic' black looks good

    doesn't seem as dull as the standard flat black.

    I like it much better, the shinier bezels and straps are harder to dye because there not a porus, don't seem to take the color as well, I actually died this one for about 15 minutes, it does look a lot different than the standard black. Has been holding up very well also. With the letters painted the watch looks alot bigger now, weird.

    Your camera's white balance is off the charts. Cant tell how different it is from the final results.

    Ive been telling the wife we need to pick up a good Digi Camera, its just a cheap Sanyo, didn't realize a good one is so expensive, I could buy like 4 Frogmans for what they cost! I've been frustrated with this thing for a long time now!

    Did you use any particular type of paint for the yellow lettering or would regular model paint be sufficient, thx.
