The blury parts are just some random fingerprints!
Sandpapers that were used: 1. P220 Untill whole surface is matte.
2. P600 Untill whole surface is matte.
3. P2500 (This one i used a "wet sandpaper") Untill whole surface done and no other deeper scratches from the lower papers.
4. After sandpapering a matte nice surface you use a polish liquid like "Autosol" or as meantioned in the thread "Belgum Alu".
Those are used to polishing the metal to get a "chromed" surface. This is easiest done by using a handdrill having a polish towel.
If not having a handdrill with this set, just use cotton or some else soft material to polish it. Apply and rubb!

Ok first, take off the 2 covers and take out the battery,similar card,etc.
Next take the guitar pick and use it to pry up the GPS cover. Take note of the screw in the corner that was hidden under the cover.
Now use the t5 to remove all of the diver screwed around the edge of the phone , there should be 4. Now take out the screw that was hidden by the Gps cover.
You can now remove the body CAREFULLY!!!!
If looking at it from the front make sure you push up and to the left so you don't break a volume button like I did lol.
Now that the back is off, remove the power button, camera lens, speaker grills, and the volume button which is held in by a piece of rubber.
Youre now done. Make sure you don't loose anything and just follow the guide backwards to replace. The pic below shows the spots where all the screws are.
