Well I finally did it, all the parts came in for one of my Vostoks I've been planning to mod. Took about 15 minutes, was super simple. New bezel, insert and case back.

The back and bezel made it thicker, by a lot, which was much needed for me. The lifted bezel also provides much more protection for the soft acrylic crystal, which I love. The insert looks much nicer and ties in the red of the seconds hand much better than the original. Eventually I'll have to replace the strap, once I find something I like.

Liking the choice of a bold colour insert , as you said it ties in with the red of the second hand . 

Display caseback is also very a very good decision . Well done :thumbsup::thumbsup:

Thanks, I'm excited to get my second one finally in so I can do something with it, but a different edge to the bezel and a ceramic insert with luminous markings. Should look pretty rad!

Nice one Jay, looks good - do you feel more connected with the watch because you customised it?

Yes definitely! It's my creation in a way. No I didn't Make the entire thing, but there's enough altered here to Ve considered my own. Put this side by side with the original and it's a night and day difference to me.

Good work buddy. You'll have to do a dial change next. 

And hands! I would like to try making hands set changes at some point.

Fiddly little buggers they are. Hope you've got lots of patience.
