    Stealthing a Mudman

    Last week I bought a nice GW9010 from K42 (who is a scholar and a gentleman) that had the bezel ring painted black.

    I thought to myself, why not go the whole way, and stealth the entire watch? Below are the results of my stealthing adventures, including a very good example of why keeping MEK in a plastic cup is a very bad idea.

    Note: I did NOT have to take the module apart... it stayed sealed the whole time. I also boiled all the outer parts while I had them off, the buttons are nice and squishy now. The scrubs guy in the background is a fellow WIS who decided to come down off his high Omega horse to watch some homebrew Gshock action.

    Were you able to stealth the red metal areas under the bezel? If so, how did you accomplish that? I kind of like the GW9010, but the red metal areas are a turn-off. If there is a way to make that metal a matte black color without too much difficulty, I'd have to seriously consider that model.

    Good job on your stealthing by the way!

    That looks very nice!
    I did not do the painting. I would have preferred to leave the red ring and black out the bezel. But all black is even better.

    I already miss the Rally Mudman, but I'm holding out for the new MB verision.

    Not bad at all, see if you can take a better photo(s) and post some larger ones.

    I voted it looks Great!
    But I think the pic of the cup is hilarious.

    I've pulled a couple of those with various containers while de-greasing parts on various automotive projects.
