Default Restoration

Its been a while i got one of this 8000 midcase in worn and incomplete condition. I left it for a while forgotten and busy with other stuff..mostly mod the newer entry level diver.

And now the attempt to restore an old 6105 Proof begin.
Started with remaking the 1 of the most important visual part that was missing in the set:

I use yobokies insert for this project
happy with how it look although not as pretty as the genuine insert but its ok

Next will be dial restoration
and for the crystal...kinda still in between to polish or to get new replacement..
