Well after a few hours of my permanent marker "blacked out" speaker grill, I decided that I actually liked the white speaker grill for some odd reason. Can't put my finger on it but it now looks a little "too" plain in the front, the white speaker somehow goes well with the white back cover. Almost like a styling cue.
Put a Q-tip with alcohol and after a few passes, it's back to stock white. Lovin' it!
