    Default ***Custom All Black Everything 9700 vs 9000***

    Just like my previous custom work, all photos were taken on an iPhone. Please don't mind the 3.2 megapixel cam!

    Yeah I know... "been there done that"

    but here ya go anyways:





    9700 All Black Everything


    9000 All Black Everything


    And the rest!








    All parts are from TrueSupplier.com

    That 9700 looks great. One question - Why didn't you keep the original back?

    I have to say, I'm extremely impressed!!! Do you mind me asking how you made the guitar frets between the rows of keys all black?

    Again, great job!

    I'm not a big fan of the original backing.



    And to schgittyfour, my keypad is the same feel as the OEM. all I did was take off the chrome.

    How did you get the chrome strips on the keyboard to be black?

    Okay that looks good. Maybe I'm a bit partial, but I like the 9700 just a bit better than the 9000.

    I can't tell if you painted the trackball retaining ring black or removed it and used one with black ball/black cover setup...??? BTW I found that removing the 9000's TB retaining ring and just laying it in there and letting the keys hold it in place works so much better I think...

    both look nice, but the 9000 is a beast. i've always liked that phone.

    Awesome! I just placed orders today for chrome black faceplate and original black faceplate, not sure which one would look the best, I'd be to worried about getting paint onto the keypad if I was to paint the chrome strips

    Awesome. Would love to change the chrome to black on my phone. I'm not a big fan of the chrome at all. Good job!
