Hey guys, I have a few scratches and scuffs on my black HTC Desire S around the edges. I have a case on it but it was my cousin's and i think he went a while without a case. I'm thinking of spray painting it to the original colour. If i can't get the original one then possibly a different colour. How would I go about doing that and what kind of paint would i need? Strange question for XDA, eh? :P
Thanks guys.

Dude do not spray paint. Spray paint will be much weaker than the original coating... so it will wear off gradually. There is another Option though- http://braindeadlock.net/macbook-dye-project/

You can replace all the housing, with a new one, more expensive then paint, but it can actualy "renew" your device.
Search ebay for item number 260851559777.

Can't remember where but someone in here went the other way and sanded the casing down to remove all the paint, making it a silver desire S. Looked quite nice.

Yeah i'd prefer that the paint lasts a long time. I like the dying idea but i'd probs end up "dying the cat" as he said in the guide :P

I think this would be the best option coz I've seen a Desire HD sanded down which looked really sexy. I'm gonna research it a bit more.
