Thanks.

The metal is Duplicolor spray paint (metalcast red anodized) with Rustoleum adhesion promoter. After painting, I baked it for an hour at 180 degrees.

I have another bezel I'll try actually anodizing eventually.

not sure if we want to continue this thread or the bigger original one

Modded Gs (heaps of vintage mods in that one)
but since this was bumped most recently....

been meaning to post in one of these threads (actually i think i made a thread many years ago as well lol) but never had all my mods and customs in one place. i finally got around to scouring my backups and will upload them to wus instead of hotlinking so there wont be any broken links in the future.... hopefully! 🤞

first batch are "customs" re: anything thats been painted, had the back removed or modify beyond a resin swap.
second batch will be band and bezel remixes.

1000 series frogs def are the best to mod, so many options and parts to mix and match
painted bezel and home made side rivots

Sorry if I bumped the wrong post. I did a search and found quite a few, but most were really small and/or had been inactive a lot longer.

Great collection!

no biggy, it happens alot. the thread was bumped a few times over the years simply cos it was slightly newer. the problem goes back to when this thread was created while the other one was still active. such is forum life!
glad it or one like it got bumped, gave me the motivation to get my sheet together 👍

This is such an awesome combo! I've almost bought these sneakers in the past, but I always end up with very boring walking/running shoes 🏃‍♂️
thanks man! tho the watch came years before the shoes, just so happened they were a perfect match...and i think i have a thing for those colours 😄

theyre the don c collabs

got another pair of mids not long after these cos i simply couldnt wait and didnt know if they were going to release the originals
15692102


of course anytime you jump the gun, you end up paying twice cos 6-9months later they released the originals

well no quite the same, missing the plastic ankle supports so theyre lighter but nostalgia is a mofo and they were on sale... so i bought two pairs 😁

origin story: i saved my ass off to pay half of an $80 pair of shoes (mum paid the rest) but secretly squirreled away extra knowing id have to fork out more for what i really wanted. $120 later, on sale (in the 80s that was quite expensive!) i had my first name brand shoes and i was the coolest kid at school for all of a week till some kid got the erx 400s haha
dont know how but i balled in those big heavy things for a good couple years, the ankle support was divine 😃

considering i still wear alot of my stuff from the 90s or similar, they fit in rather well. even better, the 90s are back again! :D

they ended up releasing alot of colours of the erx and theyre still floating around on sale, def. grab pair if you can. as the saying goes, life's too short to wear boring shoes ;)

Looking for a different finish I used a (experimental) electro-chemical distressing process (sodium & vinegar solution & 12V dc) on this GW-B5600 aftermarket stainless bezel & band. ...off the watch of course w each springbar removed.
