    What dye to use ??

    Well my orange GX56 is really badly stained now and I cant get it off.

    Can anyone with experience of dyeing G shocks tell me what the best dye to use is and what is the best way of doing it ?

    Take the resin parts off of the watch and put them in a pot with simmering dye/water for as long as needed to reach the desired color. I used RIT dye with very good results (only black, no experience with other colors)

    Why not just hold out for a bit until they release spares. Then get another Orange set.

    RIT dye, ill have to look that up.

    Marc, have tried looking for the bezels and straps, but they are not doing them at the moment. If I dye what I have it will be proper stealth GX56.
