    Hi all,

    I'm thinking to buy some colorware parts for my bold 9700, planning on doing it fully carbon black softtouch, and only the top cover en small bottum piece a glossy finish to keep my bold as original as possible looking. Now my question how glossy is the carbon black ? Googles a bit and i only found the soft touch finish, or color finish with gloss. Bottomline is does it look like the 2 original parts on the bold 9700 . Who can help me with this question ?

    Regards mike

    You might want to email colorware and see if they will send you either pictures or color samples.

    You may want to go with Jet Black (gloss) on those pieces if you want them to look like the original pieces.

    Here's a pic of my 9700 with the top and bottom in Jet Black:

    THAT - is a sweet phone. Not meaning to hijack the thread. I was unaware you could order Colorware parts, as I thought you send in the phone and they do the work for you.

    On certain phones you can. Something like an iPhone you'd have to send in or buy new from Colorware.

    Inner Back - Jet Black (softouch)

    That phone looks great. You have to drop some coin for quality. You can't buy a Mercedes with ford money.

    Thanks for the pictures, i will definitly go with all carbon black, and those parts jet black glossy. Going to do my backlogo smoke white softtouch it will perfectly match with the white blackberry logo on the front and the white keys. Transfered the money to my paypal account. Monday i'm going to order it.

    I will post my findings and pictures when i receive my parts.

    regards
