    Thank you for all the kind comments folks.

    Maybe I'll get the G1 ball sometime down the road but the silver rim isn't bothering me too much at the moment. As for paint, yes I didn't want a glossy look so I went with flat black. Its sexier and stealthier anyways haha. Just sanded off the original chrome coating with very fine sand paper to ensure it will stick. Sprayed 3 very fine coats of a plastic specific modeling paint by Tamiya. Had various good experience with it in terms of detail and durability, but never tried it on a phone until now. So we'll see

    Most of the phone is already black so I don't know what's so hot about it being all black? Don't get me wrong all black looks hot, but it doesn't make the phone so much better looking since most of it was black. If the phone were mostly silver then yea!!

    Very nice. I'm going to sand down the chrome on my Rogers 8900 and replace the trackball with a red one.

    I was asking myself the same question when I saw this. I think if it does then I won't be doing any physical customization to my 8900 lol. God forbid something does happen to my phone... my grandma would flip if she would have had to shell out 200 or even more for a blackberry.

    That doesn't sound like a bad idea IF the physical customization doesn't void the warranty, although most likely it should

    I bought the bezel from cnn.cn. After seeing your pictures, I wish I just spray painted my OEM bezel black. I did however get the G1 Trackball...it's on it's way through the mail.

    My chrome started chipping off so I just sanded it all off using my nail buffer lol. Took me like 20 min., it's all black and looks GOOD. I just ordered a black battery door too.

    Yes I will post pics in the morning. I think it looks totally fine after just buffing it off. It's like a matte black.

    Well if something happens, you could always buy replacement parts piece by piece from cnn.cn and replace the parts so you could send the phone back...and its not to expensive for just the individual parts
