@OP

take a look at the following post
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1127142

He's used chemicals like ferric chloride so that the brushed aluminium doesnt get scratched. Maybe you could also do so and post the pics so that amateurs like could also do so.

Thanks keep it up mate.

That's a really nice finish, makes me drool. But after you removed all of the brown stuff, can the aluminium not get miscolored or something?

I've seen that a while ago. Maybe i'll try something like that with my next phone. I'll keep the DHD as it is at the moment.

But thanks for the link

Shouldn't be, aluminium melts at around 1000 C I THINK. And if you can choose whatever you want, an orange phone would be sick. You'd have to paint the other parts too though, doesn't go very well with brown...
