    Would it be possible to have the battery door all black, and where it says nextel the border around it to be chrome only?

    hypermods.com has a wide variety of OEM backs, including the chrome. They also have (but are currently out of stock) of the OEM front panels. They are great to have (kind of expensive) if you want to paint your front panel but still want to keep an original.

    i actually make my own chrome backs.. i use airplane grade paint remover to strip off the paint because regular thinner is not strong enough and the only other way is to sand alllll day.. then i begin sanding all the way up to 3000 grit til its nice smooth metal then i polish with a dremel for the chrome finish.. when i make other colors i simply strip the paint sand just a little bit spray whatever color i like on the back a few coats then a few more coats of clear and im done.. front plates are diff another friend on here told me how to get the blue off.. you scrub with the back side of the sponge DO NOT touch the screen with the sponge it doesnt matter how tidious this is but if you do your screen will be extremely permanently scratched/smeared.. next i tape the back of the screen and spray it w.e color i want to match the back plate.. let dry and put back on and thats it.. to paint speaker it pops right out then i spray it with a color then clear coat.. then in the circle i put in a round beveled M logo from one of my old 830s and i do the same onto my antennas i sand down the round tip of the antenna heat it up a little bit put a little glue on the M logo and set it in.. i just started experimenting since i got this new job at the auto body shop.. anybody have any other questions let me know..

    chrome ear piece how to..

    i forgot one simple mod that you all should do it looks sick even if you have nothing else done to ur phone.. the earpiece speaker is black on 860s.. take the blowdryer to your screen heat it up a little then pop it out CAREFULLY.. from an old 730 pop off the chrome speaker piece place it on the back of the screen panel over the hole and just put a drop or two of glue to hold it in place.. u dont even need glue really if theres the sticky tape still in place.. then put your screen back on you should be pleased

    Finally Got myself an OEM Silver 860 housing









    I Got some chrome shiny spray paint, and painted the housing.. It doesnt rub off or anything so its preety sturdy. I Like the new look of it.
