Anyway, man the sand papered Incredible S looks awesome Thinking of doing it:P
Just one question! Did you used some kind of alcoholic silver pen to paint the microphone right above the HTC logo?
Thanks in advance!

Mines already a metallic silver from factory.

Looks interesting , like the Desire Z , but I prefer mine all total matte black it gives it a somewhat sinister look :P
But yeah , if it's all scratched that is an excellent solution

Mines still half done it takes a lot longer than you would think especially around the volume rocker and other tight spots. It looks cool but set aside 4 hours

Have you disassembly the whole cover? Is there a high risk to damage the device?

All I did was take the battery cover off. The only damage you might have is scratching your screen with the sand paper just be careful or cover it with a screen protector. Once you get through the paint the metal is very soft, just avoid over sanding.
