A little too shiny for my taste, but it still looks great.

Looks like you could bounce a laser off that one. Yeah, too shiny for me. It is also kind of a fingerprint/smudge magnet. Nice work though.

It looks great! Personally I wouldn't do it to mine right now. The ipods have a shiny back like that too and it lives finger orbits and scratches.

If my backing starts to look bad I may do this. How did you do it?

I think it looks good, but does it make that cover more slippery?

You must work at a body shop or on cars as a hobby. That just screams it to me. I have plenty of gearhead friends that do the same type of thing. Nice work btw! The best I can do is change oil and brake pads on a good day lol! I did just redo the gasket on my oil pan and it wasn't too bad plus changed one of my O2 sensors. That was a royal pain without the proper wrench.... anyways, sorry to ramble on good work! Might have to steal that idea. Ever think of doing the same to the phone bezel so it would match? You'd have to be EXTREMELY careful though.

How did you do it? Did you use automobile metal polish? Do you know what type of metal its made out of? I was thinking about doing this a little while back and forgot about it. And I also want to etch some custom art into it as well. Make it more personalized

I would also like to do the trim piece but it would be tricky to do it without touching anything else, and I don't see myself taking it off.
