Default Interested in complete black housing?

Before I go further, I'm not selling anything. I was just trying to see if there would be any HTC ChaCha users out there interested in a complete black housing for their phone.

It seems that the only solution for US Version phones would be to swap out the parts for a black European version.

So that being said, I'm trying to contact a manufacturer who claims to manufacturer the parts. I just want to know if anyone on XDA would be interested just so I could guestimate and see if it would be worth it or not.

If it was good quality i'd be interested but the problem is, it's never as good as original and the fitting is never as good.
Many phones I've changed (well had them changed by nimble fingered types in UK and asia) and it's just not as good as it was....

I've always regretted doing it!

I completely agree! I once bought a complete housing for a BB curve only to find out it was painted with cheap paint, and on the most fragile plastic. I ended up doing more damage to my phone.

Anyways, I will definitely make sure its not cheap. My main concern is if it fits tightly and is solid. I'll let you guys know if I have any leads.

I'd be interested if the price was right, and it could be shipped to the UK.

Im thinking about painting it black, cause its almost impossible to find any black housing for my white chacha...

I couldnt find a legit place to get parts. So i too have been thinking about coloring my case myself. You should probably use an acrylic spray paint like montana or ironlak. But i also have been thinking about using an old method for dying skateboard wheels. Basically you get some rit dye and warm water and dye the plastic for an hour or so. It seems like the white plastic will retain color.
