While sitting down watching fireworks on the driveway, my phone decides to commit suicide via tumbling out of my pocket. Mind you - I don't have a case for it yet, and I'm still waiting for my screen protector to come in the mail. I felt the shift in my pocket and heard the *clack* sound as the phone bounced three times on the concrete before landing face-down. My heart dropped. After cursing up a storm I mustered up the courage to pick it up to examine it... As expected it was utter disaster. Nicks and scratches on every corner, and a little notch on the aluminum lining of the screen. I know I may sound dramatic, but I'm sure theres people out there who feel my pain.
OK! fast-forward to today. I figured since most of the damage was to the back cover, I would just peruse this interweb thingy and find a replacement... Turns out they average about $35.00 a pop. Not bad. So then my imagination kicks in and I start to wonder if they're going to make a white Evo3D. Apparently not. Unless I'm mistaken there is no plan for a white one yet. Boo to that I say! So the guy I always argue with in my head blurted out "I might as well paint my own"... For once we both agreed and so spawned my plan...
Here's my LIST OF SUPPLIES
- 2 SHEETS OF EXTREMELY FINE SANDPAPER
- 1 CAN OF BLACK PRIMER SPRAY PAINT
- 1 CAN OF WHITE PRIMER SPRAY PAINT
- 1 CAN OF GLOSS WHITE ENAMEL SPRAY PAINT
- 1 BOTTLE OF GLOSS WHITE TOUCH UP PAINT (just in case)
- 1 SET OF PAINT BRUSHES (for the just in case)
- 1 ROLL OF MASKING TAPE
- 1 RAZOR BLADE
- 1 BOX OF POP TARTS ( artists get hungry y'know?)
And here's the before pic... Can't see the horrendous scratches though
So from here on, I'll just let the pictures speak for themselves... Mostly.
Made sure to remove the buttons..
Ready to paint!
3 coats of primer, 2 coats of gloss white
Same goes for the black
So here's the beginning of my story...
