Hey all,

I have "Chromed" the Cover of my Titan and have made some pics during the procedure.

The whole process took me 2:20 hours and I must admit that I like the result but check it out!!

I used 400, 240, 120, and 40 gr Paper, to make the finish I used the 40, the others you can choose what you like most, 400 gr takes longer to remove the color but is more accurate and soft to the cover, I used after 1 hour to take only 240 and 120 because it took too long...

The first picture left shows all materials I had used, don't forget to stick the plastic pieces and the buttons!!!!

The pictures are in an chronological order from left to right so first starts left and the final result is on the right.

When I've done this, I didn't compared to an iphone , I am very glad that I have an Windows phone which is -at my opinion a lot better then Ios ^^.

I did it because I don't like black, so it's at least partly gone.
