    I have a verizon pearl 8130. It has a lot of scratches on it, so I purchased a new housing kit from cnn. I figured, instead of throwing the old housing away, why not paint it. If I like it I'll keep it and if not I'll just use the new housing. So, after reading many many threads on here about it and searching google, I am going to buy the supplies tomorrow and paint it. I'll post the pics sunday or monday at the latest.

    Here's my phone....

    And here is my phone taken apart. the red X's represent things that won't be painted. the numbers follow the descriptions below....

    1. I will paint the face light blue. I will tape the screen window, the ear piece, and the notification light. I will paint over the Blackberry logo unfortunately
    2. I will paint the battery cover light blue also, covering the camera with tape.
    3. I will paint the entire bottom piece light blue, NOT covering the verizon logo.
    4. I will paint the side bars navy blue, but taping the convenience keys to prevent them from sticking.

    So this is what I want it to look like...

    I'm going to start out at Home Depot and Joann Fabrics tomorrow to look for aerosol for plastics. I will also stop at pep boys to see if they have the colors in high temp auto paint.

    How do you plan to not seal the holes for the speaker?

    great call thanks... I'll put a small piece of circular tape there

    Edit: or put the tip of a tooth pick through from the back might be a better idea
