Default The Material on the shell of the 8900

Please Login to Remove!

Does anyone know if that is actually metal (the part that looks like metal) or is it plastic

I have some scratches on it. Is there something that will remove them (I tried that dysplex but they are too deep

Is there anyway to get a new metal part. I would have no clue how to get it on

It's plastic w/ chrome plating. You can get a new bezel at cnn.cn and search for the 8900.

There's a video online that shows you how to replace the bezel. There's also several threads on here that have a DIY on how to remove and replace the bezel.
