hi guys

thought i share some pictures of my dw-004 i won on ebay for €3.50:-!

i replaced the band with a velcro one. and added some strap adapters.
it need a serious cleaning, a lot of built up gunk and sweat. battery and seal change also.
i am very happy with the results, it look like new.:-!

a big thank you to SJORS and KEITH from TIKTOX for all the help.:thanks

hope you enjoy.

Great job, strap looks better than the original and for that price you got a fantastic buy!

It's reasons like this that collecting 'G's is so appealing!

Nice job, sereph. Your strap mods have made it better than new, in my opinion.

Did the strap adapters come with the strap? If not where did you get them from? Just wondering if there is a better place than America to order them from.

hi hoochy,

no, i got them off Keith in TIKTOX.com. they are adapters for G-2900F.
they needed a bit of work to make them fit. i had to remove some of the resin on the adapter using a stanley blade and a very steady hand!!!!!
casio dis-continued the dw-003 & 004 , adapters.

once done they fit like a glove!

regards

Nice buy there sereph, I have one exactly the same only in red with a resin band which I also got off ebay on the cheap, It is one of the cheapest G's I have bought but the most comfortable to wear.

Great job! Did you cut down the "wrist protector" plastics or replace them with donors?
