    Re: side covers

    What do you mean side covers??? Like a back and front snap on piece or just side covers?

    Re: side covers

    DONE... I used the instructions here to open and remove side plates

    http://www.blackberryfaq.com/index.php/8100_Disassembly

    then after removing the covers I carefully removed the buttons... do not break the rubber bands.. .and they are a !#$&* to put back on after its painted....

    I used a maroon Scotch Brite pad to scuff the chrome finish so the paint will bond better.

    then I used Krylon Fusion plastic bonding paint Black Gloss.

    waited a half hour and put the buttons back on and snapped the whole thing back together in reverse.
