That looks awesome. Great job. How hard was it to disassemble the phone and put it back together? I am thinking of doing this but painting it blue or green instead of white.

Taking it apart and putting it back together is really easy. Just find a video on YouTube to be safe.

I just saw the video posted above but I agree that it looks way better with white on the front, good stuff. I used to take my iPhone apart all the time to fix or replace broken parts before I got this phone. Just watched videos on YouTube like you said and its a piece of cake

I took it completely apart and sanded it with 200 grit... then I sprayed on grey primer and sanded it down so it was all smooth and applied two coats of white. And one coat of clear.

Edges are hard. So before I peeled off the tape I too a precision hobby knife and cut around the edges so that the would be straight and smooth when I peeled of the tape.

And so I have spoken it.. and so it shall be.
