I finally finished my GW9052 mod last night. I've been awaiting a donor DW9000 for the yellow buttons and the Baby G yellow strap. I'm really happy with the results. I love that there's so many mod possibilities for this series. I'm starting another today.
I wouldn't touch the LCD -- leave it as-is. The watch looks great, and definitely like a factory model. If CASIO ever decides to re-issue the DW-9000, they should make it in this color scheme. It's super. :-!
I really thank you all for the kind words. I REALLY enjoy modding or restoring watches. Probably more than wearing them (well, 50/50). It's always great when a good one comes together and passing them on to others that will enjoy wearing them.
I eyeballed the colors and got lucky. I used testers flat yellow for the lettering and a Krylon Sun Yellow hobby spray paint for the face. Both from Walmart. The buttons were from a beat up DW9000 from the bay. See pics below...
