    I actually painted mine yesterday, SSNXP. Lol. I was reading your thread on you wanting to paint your bb so it tempted me to do mine all over again. Note that I painted one of my housing in Brooke's old thread and I have pictures of that up there. I painted this one baby blue. I'll have pictures of it once I'm done. However, I've only painted the top housing and the antenna cover piece. I'm still waiting to get a hold of some battery covers.

    Nice, I can't wait to see the pics. I just out the faceplate on my phone and took pictures, but as I plugged in the camera to transfer them to my PC.. the battery died. Lol, it's charging now.

    They didn't carry Krylon at the places I looked.

    I don't think I'm going to wet sand this one. I'm happy with it. I'll probably wet sand my next one.

    Baby blue? That's sounds nice. Mine is a dark blue, not quite navy. But I just need to put a clear coat on the little microphone portion with the carrier logo and do the wet sanding part, which I'm kind of scared of doing. I guess it shouldn't be a problem if I get the right grade of sandpaper.

    Looks really nice! Why didn't you paint the portion with the carrier logo on it? And is that the iPhone that you painted white also?

    Thanks! I didn't paint that part because I'm still waiting for the extra to come in the mail. I didn't paint any of my original pieces

    Yea it's my iPhone, but it's just a white case. I'm way to sissy to take that thing apart, lol. Much harder.

    You did it! Very very nice... I want mine to look like that. My Pearl is white and I am partial to the white. My curve needs to be white too . Did you end up fine sanding it and glossing it at the end?

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~Well, I haven't had time to take pictures and post it up, but I will very soon.

    By the way Ssnxp, Krylon paint is sold at Walmart. That's where I got my supplies at, too. I bought the pink, the black, the baby blue as well as the clear gloss. I've already finished painting everything and glossed it. I need to wake up early, but will post up pics within the next several days. I'm stoked!

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ I hate to tangent from your thread, but does anyone know of a prgm/app. or a way for me to upload pics from my bb directly onto PS? Perhaps I could take some pics of my baby blue bb housing and post it up via my bb tomorrow...

    Have you tried Opera Mini? I heard the default BB browser doesn't work, so..

    I remember reading about an application that lets you load pictures directly to photobucket or flicker, then you could just link it.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ Hmm, let me find out when I get home to my desktop. I don't use Opera Mini. I like my current browser. Lol. Well, I could email the photos to myself, get on my desktop and then use photobucket. I just wanted to do it directly from my bb, for convenience. Lol. Anyhow,back to your thread, I like your white Curve.

    what do you mean sand the og paint with the 320 grit? does the og paint come off pretty easily? Ive never sanded anything b4 so im pretty terrified, but i bought the housing off ebay and will get to work as soon as it comes in, good choice on white , its the new black! and it complements the keypad really well
