Not to much to it really i bought a white decal kit from ebay

http://cgi.ebay.com/WHITE-PROTECTION...ht_2662wt_1226

used the front piece from that.i then used some krylon plastic spray paint in high gloss white for the back cover, shot it with about 3 coats of spray on clear coat
and threw a android decal i had laying around on the back. thanks for the comment

wow nice, def want to get one to go with my white case. Is it a screen protector as well or just around the edge? Also does it effect the touch sensitive keys?

That's flucking sexy. Im trying this!

Sent from my SGH-T959 using XDA App
Smartphone History:
Started with a Black G1, rooted it unlocked it broke digitizer=(
Earned 250 and got a touch pro 2. Rooted it used energy rom but didnt fit my speed needs.
Traded it for a locked iPhony 3g 16( my mistake)
Traded that for a 3g 8g. Needed more space so i traded it for a 2g 16g. Realized how baaaaad the iPhony OS was so i went back to android and got me a Cliq Xt...Current Device: Samsung Galaxy S-Rooted

Default awesome..

Hey this mod looks awesome! I have a quick question -- does putting the front decal cover the light from the touch sensitive buttons, or does it still come through? Also are they still are responsive as before? Thanks!

Nice Job! I was thinking of doing the exact same thing. But didn't know there was a white face cover... Which is also great for covering the excessive logos on the front.

Can you be very descriptive about how you painted the back?
