    thinking of 'reverse' stealthing...

    i love my buzzbait stealth dw-6900 so much, i'm thinking of making a 'bizarro' dw-6900bz. all white! i figured i could use this model:


    and swap the module out with a white bezel/strap.

    HOWEVER: the bezel i've found has black G-SHOCK lettering. if i were to remove the lettering paint using goof off, will the white bezel crumble/soften more than the black one does (which is pretty much not at all)? also, would the paint from the lettering 'cloud' the goof off and cause a slight dye job on the white bezel? is it hard to remove the paint from the 5th EL button (it looks like the G is either grey or light blue); or paint over it if need be? would white paint be a good alternative to goof-off to remove the (what looks like) black paint from the bezel?




    and lastly: do they make WHITE bull bars for the dw-6900?

    Never seen white bull bars, and these days ordinary ones are virtually impossible to get.
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...

    You should be able to remove the lettering with Goof Off no problem. I guess it would show any problems more than a darker color, but it should be basically the same material as the black one. Painting the black text white would also work.

    If you ever do locate a regular black face protector, you could try painting it. I think that would be the only way to get a white one.

    So what would you call an all white "reverse" stealthed DW6900? You gotta come up with a kool name.

    i guess that would depend on:
    a). if i go through with it and
    b). if it turns out

    i was thinking maybe "liquid paper" (AKA white-out), or maybe "my name is earl (the pearl)"

    those are just crappy names off the top of my head; if i do go through with it and it does turn out, i'll DEFINITELY need to come up with a better name.

    How about "ghosting" it?

    "Powdered" 6900??? Like the main character "Powder" from the old, forgotten movie "Powder". You know, struck by lightning mother, albino son is delivered and grows up with special powers and guy is nicknamed "Powder"?

    Back to the OP's post...Love the idea for your mod jiro.
