This is an outstanding idea.  I really like the way you turned it from plain old clock into something with some character and something that looks classic.

It seems that different people have an idea of what I am, and what I should be. And then there's me.

I finished my hack of the same clock! 

Here is my version:

Funny thing is, I didn't take out any of the "guys" or even the clock face, I only removed the clear plastic part and somehow my hour hand got screwed up?  It's like a little bit fast or too far ahead so it never looks like it's the right time  Roll Eyes  Oh well it looks cute in my penguin bathroom.

skankamaggot~ I cant see your pic (I'm sure my computer is just being stupid =( ) but I had issues to right away with it but I keep setting it to keep the right time and eventually it's started to work properly again, I dont think those clocks like to be tinkered with....just try to keep setting it and see if that works.

Yes, they are all CRAZY loud. Mine finally moved to the laundry room where it has to compete with the washer and dryer....it still wins!

I hacked mine too, except it was the blue one!  I had a lot of problems with putting the clear plastic part back in because it kept scraping off all the paint. I eventually decided I didn't care anymore. 

And like almost everyone else, it doesn't seem to work right now. Sad  Although that does take care of the insanely loud ticking. hee hee hee It drove my boyfriend nuts the one time he stayed over, that and the light on my macbook that kept getting brighter and dimmer (it ws in sleep mode).  He went nuts!!! lol
