    If you did over spray it, you can always just sand it down with some fine sandpaper and paint over it again.

    I had someone PM me in regards to their paint job and they had experienced some tackiness to the feel and texture of the phone as well as it not fitting into the holster they use after they had put too thick a layer of paint on to the case. Remember, this ONE particular kind of paint is HIGH QUALITY shiot! It holds up under the most extreme conditions. In fact, I had a VERY HARD TIME sanding it down for a friend who had a small drip mark in his paint job. So, accept no substitutes and if you do decide to do this use the Color Bond paint. Also, I use a Seidio holster so it is very important not to put too thick of a coat on the shell. Tape the inside of the shell off prior to painting and you will cut the layer thickness in half and use very small coats until you see a nice even layer of the color you want.

    Good luck everyone.

    Primer is not necessary and I did not sand it down either. They just recommend that you clean it very well with alcohol...
