Talking [MOD]Orange Desire HD[MOD]

Hello Guys!

I bought a Desire HD in December 2010 as my first Android Phone and also my first Smartphone. I was very happy with it and i fell in love with Android.

Sometime later after i checked out neary all Apps on the Android Market I got bored and decided to root my DHD. After The successful rooting the whole World of Android was open. I landed immidiatly here at XDA where all the cool magic happens. I flashed always buggyer things and got a fashmatic (you know what I mean). I have to say a big thanks to all devs of the Desire HD Forum who worked hard and still do for bringing us the best and the newest roms.

Also the flashing and stuff was normal I saw a thred with the chromed DHD. I was amazed and after a few month i did it but only with the frame. It was really nice and meany friends asked me if I had a new phone

Then after a few weeks i talked with a frend whose father could make a powder coating and I panted it in Orange. And now finally thats the result and i think its really nice

Now I have to share with you a few picture of the mod. All is working exept the Volume button i have to grind there the case a bit that he fitts.

enjoy

Looks cool man. That's a nice shade of orange. Nice work!
Why didn't you paint over the black plastic covers too? Also what kind of paint did you use and how did you do it?

Wow, that looks great. Cool idea you had

Paint and sell the parts for other people - I would buy it

That's excellent work there

I take it you took the phone apart to just get the aluminium case done?
