    Haven't gone as far as painting mine yet but just changed by keypad to the black and well happy with it. Did you use a plastic primer before the top coat? I painted a phone of mine years ago and was well happy with the results.

    The keys stand out great! The black actually makes the white letters and numbers stand out perfect. I would recommend the black keyboard to anyone, even if you are not going to paint it.

    As for paint brand, I actually used Valspar Flat Black, found at Lowes. I sanded my housing with 400 grit, pretty smooth. Then I cleaned the entire thing with Windex. Tape up all the parts you don't want to get painted. When painting, hold the paint about 2 feet away from the housing, this will ensure a thin, even coat. After about an hour of drying (this is a fast drying paint) put on another coat. Let that last coat sit over night and wahla!

    Where are you guys getting the Krylon Fusion? I can't seem to find anyone who stocks Krylon.
