    How to: Paint your BB!

    Advertisement



    So I went for it... and now to post the results!





    ************************************************** *************************


    What you will need:
    • Masking tape
    • A hobby knife
    • Spray paint (preferrably the kind for plastics)
    • T5 torx bit
    • Cardboard
    • Hair dryer (to speed up the process)
    • Sandpaper



    ************************************************** *************************

    1. Take apart the BB. You will need the T5 torx for this. Just remove the faceplate, battery cover, and bottom plate of the phone.




    2. Tape off the parts you do NOT want to paint (of course this includes the screen, camera lens, etc.
    Use the hobby knife to trim off the excess.





    3. Peel off the excess tape.



    4. Now you are ready for the sandpaper.







    5. Sand away!



    6. Now we are ready to begin painting.





    7. Use a cardboard box (or even a garbage bag) to cover your work area... optional of course.





    8. Cover with two or three coats of color, followed by one coat of clear paint.





    9. Wait for it to dry!!!




    ************************************************** *******************************



    **edit
    A few from this morning... had to go to work so didn't really have much time.
    More later.








    It's still a little sticky and needs another clear coat. Just seeing what it looked like all put together.

    looks good! Now you need one of those clear seidio cases to protect the new paint.

    Looking good! I have a question about the sanding, was that difficult?

    Nope. I think a courser sandpaper would have helped a little bit.

    I still think it needs another coat of clear Brooke.
