[Project] Colored Nexus X
First of all i want to give you some informations about the reason for this project:
When the Nexus 4 has been leaked in 2012 there were a lot of rumors about the Nexus branding on the back, many people wanted the X to be colored, but Google decided not to do it.
Here's an example what it could have looked like:
I owned a Nexus 4 for 1 month, until it was stolen
After a while without a Nexus device, i decided to get a Nexus 10 and Nexus 5 in 32GB.
In another thread i've seen a picture of a Nexus 5 with a colored X on the back, i really wanted to know how to get this done.
So i tried many things out to make the colored X possible.. without any succes.
Here are some sample pictures of my ideas:
It has failed because the lettering is very small and you have to work very precisely , which is not possible for a hobbyist.
By chance I looked at the back of my Nexus Tablets 10 and got another idea.
The lettering on the tablet is engraved and its possible to make the X colored with special painting, found on the internet.
I have a lot taped , sanded , degreased and then applied the paint.
Overall, it took me 4 hours of work , but the result was worth it I think.
