    Colored Storm

    Advertisement



    I just got through drooling over the Painted Curves that ssnxp posted a tutorial on and am extremely interested in painting my storm. I know you can send it out to colorware and they'll do it all for you and send it back (2 weeks and ~165 bucks later) but I'd personally LOVE to do it myself and save some money!

    Has anyone disassembled their storm? Bought any extra housings? Looked into how this might be done? Done it?!

    I found a youtube video on taking it apart and it seems very simple except at the end he doesn't take everything out leaving the housing a little 'unpaintable'... which of course doesn't say that its not possible just that he didn't do it...

    Any opinions\ideas?

    I'd LOVE to paint my Storm and Theme it accordingly =D

    I've thought about picking up one of the chrome outlines from cnn.cn and painting just that. I like the black of the phone so I was thinking about painting the chrome ring red but I too watched that video on youtube and it looks like a PITA to take apart.

    well mines apart - its really easy

    6 screws and peel the top and bottom off (make sure you take out your SD card because i snapped mine in half.......)

    There goes the money for another 8gb sd card.

    Anyway I'm painting it white now.. Top, Bottom, and Sides (leaving the chrome frame) - then either sticking with the back door or getting a silver one.

    Ill post the results!

    Haha I was gonna say.. if someone wants to send me a Storm, I'd gladly make a pictorial AND video tutorial on complete disassembly and painting! ;P

    Sorry to hear about your memory card, always remember to take that and the SIM card out! I hope you got all of those little extra pieces out easily. Good luck with the paint job. Looking forward to the pictures.

    Well went iffy...

    Top and Bottom came out nice - if i wasnt so impatient =P i finger printed it a bit but decided it didnt matter because i think i want to paint it something other than white... i think ferrari red =)

    The sides however, they were a pain, i painted it and it peeled off - theres actually a rubber coating on the sides of the storm that i didnt quite sand off.. bummer - i know..

    Anywho practice makes perfect all i gotta do is REsand - REpaint (re sand again) - RE clear coat - REassemble! REEEEEE
