Question [Q] Replacing the silver/plastic front bezel.

I've decided that I should part with my S4 for monetary reasons (and it's not unlocked, so that sucks too), but don't think that I could get as much as I should be able to due to nicks on the chrome plastic front bezel. The rest of the phone is in great shape, it's just the visible chrome seen from the front of the phone. Is that replaceable without replacing the entire front panel?

Here's a link to purchase the entire housing... I'm not familiar with this vendor, so you may want to do your own search.
This is for the black version, but they have others.

There are vids around that will show you how to disassemble and reassemble.
Good luck!
