    Thumbs up Cookies N' Cream Bold

    Advertisement



    I had a black Bold bezel laying around, so I decided to give it to a friend. The bezel swap wasn't too difficult, but I could not find a comprehensive guide anywhere. I found a few threads and videos highlighting the swap, but all of them were missing a few bits and pieces here and there; I'm planning on writing a more detailed guide on what to do exactly with each piece (volume buttons, left and right convenience keys, mute button, battery latch, SD card door, dust screen, both charging contacts, etc..) if I have time later tonight.

    Well, I hope you all aren't tired of Black Bolds yet, because here are some pics..

    It looks awesome with all black. Where did you get the white back cover?

    Thanks for the links Debi, and thanks Ranx! I'm waiting to save up a little more $$ before I plunk down for a housing for the 8900.

    Shapiro, there are no bumps or streaks, but there is ONE tiny piece of cloth (looks like a tiny, tiny eyelash) that landed on the housing before I put on the clear coat. I didn't attempt to remove it because I could live with a tiny line on the housing; a smudge would drive me nuts!

    Just take the paint job slowly with light, even coats of color and clear coat and it shouldn't come out blotchy like nail polish on plastic.
