Tired of LG G2 shiny back cover?

I buffed my shine off with fine steel wool (grade 00) , then buffed it over a final time with ultra fine steel wool (grade 0000). It's available at any Home Depot. It leaves you with a slick matte finish, no gloss, no excessive fingerprints.

I removed my back cover to do this, but its not necessary. It's actually quite easy to remove, almost like a removable back cover. I just pushed my fingernail in and got a gap, then proceeded around the edges popping each clip as I went... Alternatively you could just put tape on your camera lense to avoid scratching it.

Do you have any pictures of the finished product? I'm curious.

I'd love to see pictures of this as well, I just put on a slim flexible case and looks much better.

Wouldn't doing this mess up the screen printed logos on the back cover?
