If I buy the 8700 Front and Back Covers from ProMobility I'll be able to replace the entire housing on my 8700C ??

If yes, is it easy? How do I remove the current scratched housing so I can put the new one on? Do I need a special tool?

Encase your device with the Seidio polymer skin case and be done with it.

The scratches on the actual housing may be difficult to take off with displex. Displex is only for the LCD screen, but that being said, many people have had some horror stories using displex. If you use it you have to be very careful and use it right.

As for the housing, I do believe it is easy to take off the old one and put a new one on.

There are threads here and there as to how someone did theres, but here is a link that was floating around the forums:
RIM Blackberry Forums - Pinstack.com - Free Blackberry Downloads - Device Photos

You have to register to download it, but it gives you step by step pictures of how it is assembled, so one can say you can figure out how to take it apart

LOL there is NOTHING that could hide the scratches on my 7520.

I can't tell you how many times that thing has hit pavement. Everytime it does, I swear it is its last time. The only issue I have (other than the gouges) is that I had to Krazy glue the silver border back on (3 times) from falling off. The Blackberry looks WEIRD without that border!
