    Thanks Gomer. Hopefully it really is metal. I might order it tonight so if you want to wait 2 or 3 weeks I'll let you know!

    Yeah cpjr is going to swap out my black 8gb housing for a white one and he said to get a new bezel while I'm at it. Just finished doing a complete black/white theme to complement my new housing once I get it.

    that would be sick

    @cpjr you should post a thread for custom painted iphones that would be somewhat useful. all these pictures are only gonna keep pileing up in here this way people would know where to look. just a thought

    also what do you think about a 3G custom painted to look like a 1st Gen. i've always like the Aluminium look and black antenna cover on the bottom if it was all glossy and curvy like the 3G i think that might look pretty cool. or is that just me?

    ^I gonna start a thread once I get my pics together....and projects. Currently painting:

    1. 3 Iphones/housings.
    2. Blackberry Bold
    3. Blackberry Storm.

    But the iphones and bold are the same color. Trying to get a little more variety first

    Well, you could paint a 3g to look like a 2g, would be kinda funny.

    can someone give me a link to good strong glue to used for the bezel?

    I really don't like using superglue. it makes a mess!

    The reason they did away with the metal is because the 3G has a second antenna - you'd have to be careful you didn't block reception to that!
