I am currently in the process of doing this to my M7. It looks great, but the damn letter C fell off the back and when I attempted to glue it back on the super glue pretty much melted it...but alas, the underlying design, if polished up a bit looks quite unique and nice. So no harm no foul. But if you don't want it looking like that, be careful around those damn letters.

I've used a similar technique on my aluminum rims. In the US there is a brand by the name Poor Boy's that makes a sealant for chrome rims that lasts about 3 months but that just locks in the shine preventing dulling by oxidation. For the scratches, wouldn't a clear adhesive protector for the back cover do the trick while preserving the look? If they don't already come custom made by brands like Armorsuit, there are stores that 3D scan your phone and custom make the protector for about 40USD
