    Default anybody figured out a good way to buff bezel?

    I'm sure most 9900/9930 users have witnessed small scratches on the stainless steel bezel on their phones. I'm looking for a good way to remove these scratches. Can anyone help me? Even tho I don't have the "flagship" device anymore I'd still like it to look good.

    The seidio clip turned the bottom of my phone bezel into a black spotted mess. I'd love to find out a way to get them worked out.

    I can tell you a magic eraser doesn't work. Lol

    Remember, the bottom part of the bezel where the charging contacts are is silvered plastic, not metal.

    Do as you would be done by and 12 pence to the shilling (or 100 cents to the dollar).

    I'm surprised you didn't order a new Z10 instead?

    You would have to take the phone apart yo get the bezel as a separate piece to work on, then use kapton tape to mask off the shiny area from the brushed area. Start by masking off the shiny part then use a scotchbrite sanding pad to redo the brushed, wash it well when done then mask off the brushed and use a metal polish on the shiny part. Autosol is a good choice for a polish.

    If you do a google on refinishing watch bracelets, such as a the new Rolex Oyster with the shiny middle links and brushed outer links, it would be the same process.
