    I painted mine white right after the hot pink tutorial... I ended up redoing it though.
    Yup. I used your thread as one of my sources for the paintjob. I just threw in a few extra precautions/steps. (:

    Yeah.. Im going to try to find them in the stores, so I don't have to order from online.. There is also a red/brown, but i don't want a brown phone.. I know blackberrys are the sh**, but I don't want to paint it the same color as it..

    lol

    i saw a real life photo of the pink/gold spray being used on a model car and it looks really nice...there's also a blue/green coming soon.

    the only thing is tamiya said the spray paint is for polycarbonate? or something..is that a plastic? or does anyone know what that is? im just wondering if that type of paint can be applied on the BB housing

    Working for a car shop that does custom body/paint work has it's advantages

    My process for painting my 8310 was as follows

    1. Disassemble and tape off
    2. razor out what i wanted painted
    3. VERY fine sand blast to remove OEM paint
    4. silver primer/base coat from PPG
    5. wetsand w/ 600 grit
    6. 2 coats of PPG Hot Wheels® Spectraflame® Bright Red and Orange
    7. 3 coats of PPG Hot Wheels® Spectraflame® Purple "candy" clear coat
    8. 6000 grit wet sand polish
    9. buffer
    10 reassembly

    Pics to follow

    I don't know what I am doing wrong but wetsanding is not going as expected for me. I think that maybe the sandpaper isn't high enough grit, its 1000, thats the highest the store had. I have tried twice and both times it has taken off the paint so right now another coat is drying and I will just go straight to clear instead of wetsanding first. At first I was going to leave the antenna cover in red but then when I saw the matte black dry it looks so badass I had to go fully blacked out. I need to order the black keyboard from the red curve or VZW curve and then my murdered out BB will be complete!

    I painted mine again. It came out lighter than I expected from what was on the can. It came out a lot better than my first experiment.
