    Sherms how did you do this DW6900FS-8

    I was searching WUS for and came across this picture and Im totally in lust with this watch.

    I picked or will be getting in the mail an DW6900FS-8 and I was curious what you used to paint the lettering white. Second question how did you get the light button Black.

    Thanks

    Hi Lotsof,

    Do you know the ID of the one who posted the pic? I think it maybe would help you to get a quicker reply.

    Edit: Disregard. I've just read the thread's title. :D

    I don't know what Sherm Used for the letters but you can use white nail polish...for the button i would use modeling weather-proof paint...

    I would recommend using goof off rather than white paint for this watch. I have an FS8 that I stealthed using goof off and it looked cleaner than with paint, IMO. I also had Casio put a black button on mine, but you can do it yourself. I originally removed the G button and painted it black, but I didn't like the look, and Casio put in a proper black plastic one. Here's mine stealthed with goof off.

    Hi lotsofstufftogo,

    I used a white paint marker and lightly filled the letters. I used goof off on a cloth to clean off the excess. The button is black because I used case/module from a 6900MC-7.

    The marker is similar to this:


    St. burt, the stealthing looks great. I attempted the same mod and ruined the bezel from soaking too long in goof off. :oops:
