    So after reading various threads on blacked out bolds and 8300 curves, Ive always wanted a "black" berry.

    While the chrome trim is pretty nice looking on the 8900, I knew it would look better black. ClintRo's thread from a while ago and his blacked out berry has inspired me to make mine black too. I noticed the black bezel from cnn.cn is somewhat glossy. Plus im not a patient person, so instead of ordering one, i just sanded the fake chrome off my existing bezel and coated it with a few layers of flat black paint.

    Here is how it turned out. Im pretty happy with the results. As mine is a rogers 8900, it already has a black battery cover Spent around $5 for paint, 20 min disassembling/reassembling and around 2 hours in between painting.

    It looks like you decided NOT to go with the Jet Black color and instead went with a more mat black? Maybe it's just the way the picture turned out. Either way, looks great!

    OMFG. Its fucxing B-E-A-UTIFUL! I think I would have painted it red or something since red and black are the sexiest colors ever imo.

    Nice job!!! Now get the G1 trackball!!!! It makes a difference
    How would the G1 trackball make a difference?

    The G1 trackball has a BLACK outer ring around the trackball. If you look closely at the picture, his trackball has a silver ring around the trackball. I guess getting the G1 trackball with the black trim makes a big difference.

    That looks awesome. What type of paint did you use? I'm curious to see how it holds up after a few months. My concern would be with it chipping.
