Default battery cover

Please Login to Remove!

Hello guys

well earlier today i notice my battery cover was broken (the peice that keeps it ont he phone, where the lock its...) anyways... so i decided to take my old silver battery cover and paint it black... white not right... its just sitting there collecting dust and well off i went to it...

sand it down to the plastic, washed it, had fun trying to get into the tinny cormers of the chrome area... then masked the chrome area and i swear i applied about 10 coats... heres the progress shots...

Started sanding:


Finished sanding, and washed:


All masked up:


Final Product:


Final Product again:




I'll take a picture of it when its on my phone... we'll see how it looks with the all black back and titanium front
