    Re: My well used G-SHOCK

    Here's mine. I just bought this used and I can't believe how much dirt and grime can get stuck inside the bezel, lugs, etc. Lots of use and abuse based on the amount of cruft I took out. Some sample of the cruft bellow, others I just cant post since its really disturbing. I think it cleaned up good. Its mine now....

    @Tsip85

    Do you use nail polish for your paintings. I tried to repaint the inscription on my GW-M5600 in gold metallic but ruined the bezel. I tried spray acrylic paint, used Revell Airbrush cleaner and clear paint, spent almost 36€uros for an unlpleasant result.

    Re: My well used G-SHOCK

    I use Revell model paint. I coat it just enough to fill the letters completely and let it dry for about 20-30 minutes. then I go back over it very lightly with a paper towell dapped with model paint thinner. Sometimes I've actually pulled teh paint out of the letters, in which case I just clean it all up, rinse with water to get the thinner off the resin, and start over. That's how I painted the letters on this bezel and button...
