    I finally got all my parts in: titanium bezel, titanium battery door, black side buttons, black door latch, charging contacts, new set of screws (I actually broke one off in the original bezel) and I got 2 different trackballs, black and blue. They both work excellent, just trying to determine which one to go with. The blue is installed right now and is shown in the pics, although when it's lit up it looks green in the pics for some reason.

    Assembly was perfect, everything fits perfectly snug in the bezel although there is a very slight side-to-side play with the back cover, nothing too annoying. Other than that it's very solid. And yes, the charging contacts work in the cradle.

    It looks really good!

    And, I noticed that the titanium bezel emits blue light. Is it just a reflection or is it really emitting the light?

    No, the blue on the bezel is just a light reflection.

    Got the bezel, blue trackball and back cover on ebay, all other parts are from cnn.cn and dealsishop.com.

    I did the same thing to mine except I used a black trackball. I love the way it looks now. I found a new back cover with a black chrome camera lense cover instead. Much happier with my Bold now. .

    Hhhmmm....last few weeks I was thinking of buying a black bezel and was still thinking if I would go with black buttons or the original chrome ones. Now that I see this cool Bold with titanium bezel I don't know what to do anymore....really looks awesome

    I have a Matte black bold, and I can't figure out how to open the ball housing to switch the ball. Any guidance?
